Are you Qualified?

If you are certified by BONENT and wish to be considered for a position on the Board of Directors, you should ask yourself these questions:

  • What do I feel I can contribute to BONENT?
  • Do I have time and energy to be a working member of the Board, or will I end up being too busy to be of much assistance?
  • Am I a team player?
  • How do I handle work that is delegated to me? Do I get it done promptly, or do I procrastinate?
  • Do I need a lot of encouragement and reminders to complete a task, or am I a self-starter (and finisher)?

Who do you know that is qualified to be a board member?

Who is the ideal Board of Directors member? They are individuals who are willing to work towards promoting BONENT’s mission of quality patient care through certification of caregivers. BONENT needs members who are willing and able to serve the organization and their profession with time and energy. All Board members are required to proctor two examinations per year, perform committee functions, participate in periodic conference calls, attend two annual board meetings, and delegated assignments.
