Role of Committee
The purpose of the Nominating Committee is simple but vital to a well functioning organization. The primary duty of the Nominating Committee is to lead the recruitment process for suitable candidates for the Board of Directors (the Board). Candidates are then voted onto the Board by the membership at the Annual Conference and General Meeting (ACGM).
The Nominating Committee consists of three members, nominated and elected by the membership at the ACGM. Each member’s term is three years.
One of the best things about working on the Nominating Committee is that you meet, through email and phone calls, many teachers you wouldn't otherwise have occasion to meet -- teachers who may live many states away, but with whom you share a commitment to your profession and professional organization. Serving on the Nominating Committee offers the opportunity to make a difference in the future of AMSAT.
