Nominating Committee Comments Regarding Service on the Association’s Board of Directors

Being selected by your peers to serve on the Board of Directors is both an honor and a tribute to you as a highly respected leader in your profession. Membership on the Board also carries with it a broad range of responsibilities. There is always a price to pay for leadership and the Association is no exception.  While the only mandatory requirement of a Board member is to attend the Board and committee meetings, members need to be aware that much more is expected of them as Association leaders. The following will give you insight into involvement and service on the Board, should you be nominated and elected to serve.


Meeting Attendance

When elected, new Board members will attend a leadership retreat out of town with the entire Board and Chief Executive Officer. The Board meets monthly for business purposes. Dates for the year are established at the first Board meeting of the year. Board members are expected to attend most primary member events (e.g., quarterly membership meetings, Installation) and as many secondary events (e.g., Fundraisers, Holiday events, Lunches) as feasible.


Board Liaison Duties

A crucial element of the Association’s system is the Board liaison. Board members are expected to serve as liaisons to the general membership. It is imperative to assist in communicating business decisions and new ventures to the membership.


Leadership Expectations

  • Board members must be qualified, informed and experienced representatives that exemplify the highest standards of professional ethics, volunteerism, and commitment to the association management profession.
  • Board members are fiduciary agents for the Association operations and finances.
  • Board members are expected to take an active role in all member activities and attend as many major meetings as feasible.
  • Board members are expected to fulfill their liaison responsibilities.
  • Board members are expected to engage, participate and contribute to discussions and debates.
  • They should volunteer for special assignments and task forces as needed.
  • Board members should be strategic thinkers and look at the “big picture” of the Association’s vision, mission, and strategic initiatives, free of “private agendas”.
  • They should not be overly consumed and interested in administrative procedures and details.



If you have any questions regarding Board service, contact the Chief Executive Officer. Your inquiry will be confidential.
