Director of Financial Development (2020-2023)

Unopposed candidate was deemed to not meet the qualifications to run for this position. A SoWH member will be appointed for this position by the Board of Directors in Summer 2019. Please see notice below for additional information.


Nominating Committee Member (2020-2023)

Jeanice Mitchell PT, BCB-PMD

Board-Certified Women’s Health Clinical Specialist 

Notice: Director of Financial Development (2020-2023)

To be qualified for the Board of Directors office, candidates must satisfy certain requirements, including being a professional SoWH member for 2 years or more which does not include years of being a student member. Although Jennifer Volo, candidate for Director of Financial Development, has been an SoWH student member for several years and has later become an early-professional SoWH member in good standing, after closer review of the candidate’s membership duration history, the Governance Committee advised that the candidate was deemed to not meet the qualifications to run due to the candidate’s lack of years as a professional member. Since the candidate ran unopposed, there are no runner up candidates that can fill the position at this time. The Board of Directors is meeting this June 21-23, 2019 for their annual Summer Board meeting where they will identify the next steps to address the appointment of an interim Director of Financial Development.
