Call for nominations for Vice-President for Communications and Outreach and Vice-President for Advocacy, Equity, and Research

Announced July 26, 2018

The AMTE Board of Directors is seeking applications for the next Vice-President of Communications and Outreach, and the next Vice-President for Advocacy, Equity, and Research

The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 31, 2018.

The 2017 restructuring of AMTE created five divisions, which house committees that carry out the work of AMTE.  Each division has a Vice-President that coordinates and oversees the work of the committees and ensures that the division’s work is advancing the priorities of the organization.  Vice-Presidents 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 2019, we will be welcoming new Vice-Presidents for the Division of Communications and Outreach and the Division of Advocacy, Equity, and Research. We thank our outgoing VPs in each of those divisions, Suzanne Harper and Paola Sztajn, for their outstanding service to AMTE.

In order to ensure a strong transition, Vice-Presidents will be solicited and appointed by the Board of Directors prior to the fall Board of Directors retreat.  This will provide incoming VPs the opportunity to shadow outgoing VPs and to interact with the Board.
