How Your Nom Com Is Like A Rom Com!

In popular culture, Rom Com is short for romantic comedy, a classic movie genre that includes fan favourites like The Philadelphia Story, When Harry Met Sally and Bridget Jones’s Diary. In Tri Delta, Nom Com is an abbreviation of nominating committee, the group that oversees the placement of members in officer positions.

It might appear that Rom Com and Nom Com have nothing in common, but upon closer inspection, they do share some fundamental traits…

Opposites Attract

In a romantic comedy, the leads are usually two opposites who end up completing each other in a Yin and Yang sort of way. Similarly, your Nom Com is seeking various leadership styles and different skill sets that will balance the slate.

Action, Not Words

Although the banter is fun and memorable, it’s the action in Rom Coms that keeps them moving. Your nominating committee is looking for good communicators who will also take action to move the chapter forward.

Unpredictably Predictable

The best Rom Coms are predictable – almost! There’s a certain formula that audiences expect, but it’s the twist and turns we didn’t see coming that keep the genre fresh and exciting. Your Nom Com strives to slate officers who value our traditional events, but who are also interested in creating novel programming experiences.

Please keep these traits in mind as you consider nominating a sister or self-nominating for the Tri Delta Toronto Alumnae Chapter 2018-2020 Executive Committee slate. Click HERE for more information on Nom Com and how you can participate in shaping our chapter leadership for the next biennium!

Loyally,

Toronto Alumnae Chapter Elections for 2018-2020

(Source: www.annetaintor.com)

“I want every little girl who’s been told she’s bossy to be told again she has leadership skills.”

– Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook

Calling all “bossy” alumnae! I’m your Nom Com Mom! That means I’m the chair of the 2018-2020 Nominating Committee of the Toronto Alumnae Chapter.

All joking aside, the role of the Nominating Committee is an important one. We slate the President, Vice President, Treasurer & Secretary for the next biennium.

The slate of officers will be presented at our Annual General Meeting on Sunday, February 11th and all dues-paying members of the Toronto Alumnae Chapter are eligible to vote.

While committee chairs are appointed, not elected, your Nom Com is happy to accept nominations for these keys roles as well, so we can make recommendations to the incoming Executive Committee.

Here’s the list of Executive Committee chair appointments in alphabetical order: Adopt-A-New Member Program, Alumnae-Collegiate Relations, Database, Dorothy Cody Award, Golden Circle, Historian, Membership, Newsletter Editor, Panhellenic, Philanthropy, Social Events, Social Media & Gin Systems, Young Alumnae and Webmaster.

What do we need from you?

  • If you haven’t already done so, please pay your alumnae chapter dues, so that you are eligible to nominate a sister, self-nominate and vote.
  • The Committee is accepting nominations by email and by phone until Friday, February 2nd. My contact information is listed at the bottom of this page.
  • For each of your nominees, kindly explain why you believe she is the ideal candidate.
  • All nominees will be asked to fill out our Leadership Profile. Please click Leadership Profile 2018 to view and download it.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the shaping of our chapter leadership for the next biennium. We look forward to receiving your nominations and your completed Leadership Profiles.

Loyally,

Your 2018-2020 Nominating Committee
