VP for Advocacy, Equity and Research and VP for Communications and Outreach
The AMTE Board of Directors is seeking applications for the next Vice President for Advocacy, Equity and Research and Vice President for Communications and Outreach.
AMTE leadership consists of five divisions, which house committees that carry out the work of AMTE. Each division has a Vice President (VP) that coordinates and oversees the work of the committees and ensures that the division’s work is advancing the priorities of the organization. VPs serve a three-year term, meet monthly as a part of the Board of Directors meetings, and meet regularly with the Associate Vice Presidents that lead work within the divisions. In 2022, we will be welcoming a new Vice President for the Division of Advocacy, Equity and Research and for the Division of Communications and Outreach. We thank our outgoing VP in these divisions, Sarah van Ingen Lauer and Dusty Jones, for their outstanding service to AMTE.
In order to ensure a strong transition, new VPs will be solicited and appointed by the Board of Directors prior to the fall Board of Directors retreat in October. This will provide the incoming VPs the opportunity to shadow the outgoing VPs, attend the Fall Board Retreat, and to interact with the Board.

Please review the job description for these VP positions. Candidates for the VP positions must be an AMTE member in good standing for at least three years and have a record of attendance at the annual conference. Minimum and preferred qualifications as well as details about responsibilities are given in the job descriptions.
