The APT Nominating Committee is seeking nominations to the APT Board of Directors. The deadline for receipt of all nomination materials is Friday, July 17, 2015 at 5:00 PM CDT.
The APT Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for the APT Board of Directors including president, two vice presidents ( 2 ) and five ( 5 ) director positions.
It is a goal of the nomination process that the board continue to reflect the balance of preservation and conservation disciplines and the geographic diversity that makes APT such a rich and productive organization.
Nominations must be received by the Nominating Committee by July 17, 2015 and must be supported by a petition of six (6) members in good standing in accordance with APT's bylaws. The petition may be in the form of an email stating support, directed to APT Administration at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each nomination should include contact information, a biography (not to exceed 150 words), and a brief statement of interest from the nominee (not to exceed 100 words). The nomination must be submitted as a Word document file or PDF file to the email listed below. The slate of nominees will be sent to the general membership for online voting beginning September 3, 2015. Successful nominees will be announced at the Annual General Meeting in Kansas City, on November 3, 2015.
An APT Director must be a current member of APT at the time of nomination or appointment. APT Directors are elected for a two-year term, and may stand for re-election for a second term. The board meets four times a year: face-to-face twice a year; once at the Annual Conference and again in the spring; and twice by teleconference.
A Board member may miss no more than 50% of the board meetings per calendar year without being asked to step down from the Board.
Board members also typically serve as a committee chair or co-chair and are required to lead those committees and report back to the Board on their progress.
APT Officers and Directors travel at their own expense and pay for their own meals and accommodations. The rewards, however, are substantial. APT Directors make a significant contribution to the only international organization committed solely to preservation technology. In addition, many of the friendships formed through board and committee work last a lifetime.
Nominations should be sent to: APT Administration, Email: email@example.com.
Backup printed documents may be sent to the APT office but this is not required. These may be sent to: APT Nominating Committee Chair c/o APT, 3085 Stevenson Drive, Suite 200 Springfield, IL 62703 Fax: 888.723.4242.
