From time to time the Directors of the VLCT Property and Casualty Intermunicipal Fund (PACIF) seek candidates for an open position on the PACIF Board of Directors. When available, such openings are a great opportunity for an elected, employed, or appointed municipal official of a current PACIF member municipal entity to join this engaged board and help govern the VLCT PACIF member-owned risk sharing pool. All current PACIF municipal officials can nominate themselves or a colleague by completing and submitting the nomination form linked below.

To be eligible for this position, the candidate shall be – at all times during the three-year term of office – a qualified official of a PACIF member municipality. A “qualified official” is a selectboard or city council member, clerk, treasurer, or an elected or appointed official who is either responsible for selecting or administering property, liability, and/or workers' compensation coverage for the member municipality, or who has insurance experience, or both.

Duties of the successful candidate include overall policy, fiduciary, and management direction of this self-insurance fund. The PACIF Board has eleven directors and two alternate directors and meets an average of five to six times a year either remotely or at the VLCT office in Montpelier and at the Annual Meeting during VLCT Town Fair in October. Each director receives a per-meeting stipend of $150.00 plus mileage and other expense reimbursements.

Sometimes the opening is for an alternate director. An alternate director receives the same compensation and reimbursement for expenses and has the same duties and obligations as regular directors except an alternate may only vote when the presence of the alternate director is necessary to constitute a quorum.

Self nominations are acceptable, but a nomination from another person in support of the candidate is preferred. VLCT is committed to being more visible, vocal, and supportive in our efforts to help members build diverse, welcoming, and inclusive communities, and to directly address overt and systemic racism and implicit bias. As one element of this, VLCT and all its boards and committees encourage nominations by any qualified official, including nominations of and by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as well as other historically underrepresented populations.

Here is the downloadable nomination form (also the PDF file linked below). Please use it whichever way is easiest for you:
