BADM Candidate Endorsement

Screening Process

•Questionnaires are sent to the candidates with a completion date & notice that an interview appointment will be scheduled.

•A diverse screening team of 4-7 club members meet and interview candidate(s) in-person (preferred); phone interviews/zoom are allowed in certain situations.This same team must interview all candidates in a particular race for consistency in scoring.

•Teams review candidates websites, financial viability, social media sites, professional organization memberships and involvement, community involvement etc.

•At the end of each screening interview, team members individually fill in score sheets and write up a summary review of each candidate.

•Interviews are 30-45 minutes.

•After completion of all candidate interviews for a race, scores from the individual score sheets are entered on a spreadsheet. The candidate with the top numerical score receives the screening committee endorsement for that particular race.

•If two candidates have a score within 1.5% of each other, we then look at positions each candidate was placed in rank order by each screener. If a candidate received both the high score and the most #1 rankings they receive BADM endorsement. If one candidate receives the highest score but another candidate received the most #1 rankings, the endorsement team can recommend a dual endorsement.

•We then bring our selected candidates to the BADM membership at our general meeting for a vote.
