Application Information for SAI Vice President Nomination

Please submit your name via email to Roark Horn by Dec. 15 if you are interested in pursuing the SAI vice president nomination.

Your answers to the questions below, a resume and a letter granting permission to serve are due at the SAI office by Dec. 31.

Any active SAI member who is a general administrator (defined as a superintendent, central office administrator or AEA administrator) and wishes to run for SAI vice president for 2019-20 may apply.

The position of vice president is rotated annually among elementary, general and secondary administrators. The elected vice president begins a four-year commitment as a member of the SAI Executive Committee (see job descriptions below) and moves through the chairs. The Executive Committee typically meets monthly.

The general administrators on the Representative Council will choose two nominees from the application forms submitted. The two nominees will then be placed on the ballot to be voted on by SAI members in April. The vice president will be elected by a majority vote of active SAI members.

Please answer the following questions:

  1. If you were elected vice president, what would be your goals for SAI?
  2. What do you see as the three most pressing educational leadership issues facing Iowa?
  3. What's the most important leadership lesson you've learned as an administrator?

Enclose a copy of your resume with your responses to the above questions and a letter from your board president granting permission to serve.
