CMUA Board

What is the CMUA Board?

The Central Maryland Ultimate Association Board of Directors is a group of volunteers that serve as the organization’s governing body, and ensure its mission is carried out. CMUA is not an independent non-profit but a sports and recreation program of the Catonsville Recreation & Parks Council.

Responsibilities of the CMUA Board include sending a representative to attend recreation and parks council meetings, commissioning leagues, instituting policies, overseeing committees and other key initiatives, and keeping the organization in good standing.

The Board may consist of no fewer than seven nor more than nine Directors. Each director is required to regularly attend Board of Directors meetings either in person or online. The Board usually meets 5-6 times per year, for one-to-two hours per meeting.

Please email cmuacomm@gmail.com if you would like to know when the next meeting is, and if you would like to attend.

How Does One Serve on the Board?

Each year, Directors are elected to the Board by the community. Each Director is elected to a three-year term. Directors are not required to serve all three years, though it is encouraged they serve at least one year.

Each year a call for nominees is disseminated on or around June 15. Any CMUA member may nominate themselves or another CMUA member to be a candidate for the Board. Nominations must be submitted by June 28, though the deadline may be extended.

A valid submittal should include:

  1.  The nominee’s name and contact information (e-mail and phone number)
  2.  Photograph (square dimensions preferred)
  3.  Short bio (60 words or less)
  4.  A longer statement (please not more than 300 words) about why the nominee wants to be on the Board, possibly including visions or goals for CMUA leagues, tournaments, or the local community.

Send nominations by e-mail to cmuacomm@gmail.com.

Members of CMUA will then vote to elect three Directors from the slate of candidates. Each Member will be allowed to vote once for each of up to three candidates. The voting mechanism will be determined by the Board of Directors and published on the CMUA website.

In the event of a vacancy, or if there are equal amount of candidates as openings, the current Board of Directors reserves the right to select member(s) of the community without an election. Please see the CMUA Bylaws for additional information on these processes.
