Deadline approaching! NSC seeking members for its Board of Directors and Delegates Advisory Committee


Itasca, IL — The National Safety Council values diversity and cultivates an inclusive environment as it dedicates itself to its mission of saving lives, from the workplace to anyplace. The nonprofit is seeking a diverse slate of individuals to serve on its Board of Directors and Delegates Advisory Committee to the Board of Directors. All nominations will be reviewed for experience, interests and industry representation.

Board of Directors: Board members are responsible for ensuring NSC fulfills its mission by planning for the future, monitoring current operations and evaluating the organization. Members must fulfill the fiduciary responsibilities of the board, making organizational decisions that protect and further the mission. Directors may be elected for a term of not less than one year or greater than two years and meet in person at least twice each fiscal year in addition to two board conference calls. Nominations are due March 18.

Delegates Advisory Committee to the Board of Directors: Delegates provide direction, counsel and guidance to the Board of Directors regarding causes and solutions to identified areas of need; provide policy position statement recommendations to the board; assist in the execution of the council’s strategic plan; and promote NSC membership. Delegates are elected for a two-year term. The committee meets as often as deemed necessary to fulfill its responsibilities, but no fewer than two times annually. Nominations are due March 18.

New members will begin their term in September at the 2022 NSC Safety Conference & Expo. If you have any questions regarding the process, email Peggy Cleave, NSC board liaison, at [email protected].
