The Nomination Committee consists of the officers of the Planning Council, Chair/Vice Chairs of the Standing Committees, and representatives from Dallas County Health & Human Services and the CEO Judge Clay Jenkins. The following are the Nomination Committee’s core responsibilities:

  • Recruit, screen and recommend potential candidates for membership to the Planning Council
  • Track Planning Council membership classifications and demographics as well as changes in the local PLWHA population
  • Review the Nomination Process
  • Establish a mentoring program
  • Perform other duties as may be required or as assigned by the Planning Council

The following are some of the Nomination Committee’s accomplishments this past year.

  • Nominations Committee analyzed the interview process of several other Planning Councils by using best practices, our own ideas, and sound judgment to streamline the interview process. The new process will allow the committee to gather useful information from applicants to make informed decisions regarding their ability to serve on the Planning Council and our Standing Committees.
  • Also, we have developed our mentoring program for the Consumer Council Committee, where new members are paired with one of the more experienced members who can assist with any issues or challenges that may arise for the new member.

We have an orientation process for new members. In this, the new member receives information on our meeting structure, Roberts Rules of Order, the Texas Open Meetings Act and the Ryan White Care Act legislation.
