Nominations are being accepted for the position of Treasurer for the upcoming Virtual Annual General Meeting. Don’t be intimidated by the title – you don’t need to be an accountant or financial wizard to take on the role of Treasurer. This is an exciting leadership role that calls for your creativity, communication, and collaboration skills to help advance the activities of the Board.
Essentially, the role of a treasurer is to understand and control the flow of money that is coming in and out of the Association. We currently have well-managed accounts and this is where you come in.
Your duties across the year will include:
There are 6 executive committee positions: president, secretary, treasurer, and three directors. There are also 2 auditor positions. Terms are for two years, and a person can sit for a maximum of two consecutive terms.
Executive committee members and auditors are elected by the membership at the annual general meeting in April. The president and two of the directors are elected in odd-numbered years, and the secretary, treasurer, and one of the directors in even-numbered years. Auditors are elected as needed.

Any member in good standing is eligible for nomination to the committee. Anyone interested in putting their name forward should be certain they have the time available to devote to executive responsibilities (keep reading for more information). And since these responsibilities are largely related to recruiting speakers for the conference and mid-year workshop, it's helpful if our executive members are in a position to attend other industry events where they are exposed to speakers and other experts.
Most responsibilities are divided between the executive team as time and interest allows. All members of the executive work together to:
Individual responsibilities include the following:
The executive meets face to face twice per year, once following the annual conference and AGM, and once in October, usually in conjunction with the mid-year workshop. There is also a monthly one-hour teleconference during working hours.
Aside from the meetings, members of the executive typically commit between three to five hours a month to association activities. It depends on a member’s individual circumstances whether AMCA work can be carried out during working hours or as volunteer work during off-hours.
