Iowa Conference Leadership Pool Form

Complete this form fully, providing as much information as possible, in order for Conference and District Nominations Committees to match your interests and abilities with open positions.


Names will be placed in the Leadership Pool, a computer listing used by the District and Conference Nominations Committees when filling open positions. If the Leadership Pool does not have persons matching the particular needs of a board or agency, nominations may be made of persons outside the pool.


Not all persons in the pool will be nominated immediately for district or conference boards or agencies.  However, each name will be kept in an active file for four years.  To be considered for board nomination beyond the four years, it is highly suggested you fill out a new form at the quadrennium.
