A new board will be elected for 2014 and 2015 in December. We are looking for motivated members to join TACA board. We also want to remind you a few important points regarding the elections.
If you would like to apply for board membership, email to firstname.lastname@example.org below documents by December 1st:
– a short biography
– short cover letter what positions you want to assume and your plans as a prospective board member to take TACA a step forward
– your name, address and phone number
Remember, being a TACA board member is a volunteer (non-paid) work but it comes with responsibilities. Assuming a board member position requires:
– Being able to work as a team and collaborate effectively
– Being organized and able to keep up with email traffic, being able to finish given tasks or projects on time
– legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that the organization does the best work possible in pursuit of its goals
– finding new projects and events that fosters TACA’s mission or improve already existing ones
– accepting the board member responsibilities contract and act responsibly and prudently as its steward
If you’d like to serve as a director or officer, you must be a member for at least 1 full year. Those who were members in 2012 and are still members in 2013 will be eligible to become a candidate.
During the elections, according to our bylaws, only current members have a right to vote. So, you have to be a member in 2013 to become eligible to vote.
Also, student members are not eligible to vote and a family membership grants up to two votes per family.
