Calls for Participation
Call for AMA Board Nominations
Members are invited to submit names of candidates to fill vacant
positions for the Alberta Museums Association (AMA) Board of
Directors for the 2013 - 2016 term.
The AMA Board is looking for individuals who have a shared
belief in the Association's core values, knowledge of policy
governance, and an understanding of provincial government.
All nominees must review the following documents: Board Director Duties & Responsibilities,
Policy Governance Overview, Board Governance
Process Policies 6: Code of Conduct and 7: Conflict of Interest, and then complete and
return the Nominee Questionnaire and Board Nomination Form.
All nominees must be Individual Voting Members of the
Association. The AMA Board will prepare a slate of qualified
candidates from the nominations received and solicited. When there
are more candidates than positions to be filled, an election, by
secret ballot, will be held at the Annual General Meeting in
Edmonton, Alberta on September 21, 2013.
The AMA does not accept nominations from the floor at
the Annual General Meeting. The responsibility to select
candidates best suited to lead the Association requires thoughtful
planning and attention to skills / areas of expertise currently
required by the Board. Nominations from the floor do not give
nominated candidates a fair chance to have their names placed
before the membership.
Deadline for nomination is June 14, 2013.
For more information, please contact Alexandra Hatcher. To
submit a nomination, please download and complete the Board Nomination Form and Board Nominee Questionnaire.
