ECA Board Nomination Form

Board Structure & Commitment 

The ECA’s Board of Directors is comprised of up to 16 Directors, 1 Director Ex-Officio (the Chair of the Board), and up to 4 appointed Board members.  Directors represent the Association's 4 Classifications of Membership — General Contractors (3), Trade Contractors (3), Manufacturers & Suppliers (3) and Architects & Engineers (2).  Directors are elected for 3-year terms. 


ECA Board Members are volunteers that require approximately 75-100 hours of personal commitment per year. This includes four quarterly board meetings, one of which occurs at the annual 3-day Board retreat, as well as Board Committee responsibilities. Newly elected directors are required to attend a board approved Governance Training program within one year of being elected. 

New Nomination Eligibility Criteria 
It is an expectation that firms nominate candidates with significant or senior leadership, authority, and oversight in their firm to be eligible to run for the Board. This does not mean that small organizations cannot participate; In fact, it is important that ECA has small firm representation on our Board.
