• VOTE in the 2022 Election, voting ends on January 6 at 5 pm CST

    Dear Fellow DONA Members,

    Greetings from your Nominations and Elections Committee! We are pleased to present to you the slate of candidates for our 2022 elections. This election will help us welcome two new board members for the 2023-2026 term.

    As a not for profit membership organization, DONA International relies on volunteer leaders to serve on the board of directors and guide our volunteers to execute the mission and vision of DONA through the work of our many committees. As is customary for not for profit boards, DONA International has a process in which to identify, vet and present candidates to the membership for election each year.

    The election will be held over a three week period. Ballots will be available later today and voting will close on Friday, January 6, 2023. The candidates are:

    Director of Global Development

    Eva Bild, MA, AdvCD(DONA) LCCE, BDT(DONA)

    Carolyn Tranter, CD/PCD(DONA), BDT/PDT(DONA)

    President Elect

    Robin Elise Weiss, PhD, MPH, LCCE, CLC, BDT/AdvCD(DONA)

    Ballots were emailed to you on Friday, December 16, 2022 from Survey Ballot System, our independent election partner with the email address: later today. The email contains your link for voting, so be sure to not discard it as junk/spam!

    I would like to thank the 2022 Nominations and Elections Committee listed below for their ongoing efforts to present qualified candidates to the board and membership. This excellent committee of dedicated DONA International volunteers are committed to serving the organization to the best of their abilities. We are grateful for their willingness to offer their time and talents to DONA International, as we strive to identify and cultivate future leaders.
