The 2017 nominating period is not yet open for the Board of Directors. However, if you are interested in serving, please read on for more information on what’s involved.
In 2014, the Museums Alaska Board of Directors completed an inspirational strategic plan to carry the organization through 2020. Now is the time to jump in and work with us on exciting new programs and future plans!
A Museums Alaska board member can serve two 3-years terms; must be a member in good standing; receives no compensation; must attend the annual meeting and three quarterly teleconferences; serves on one or more committees; and works to effectively promote Museums Alaska to the membership and other agencies and organizations.
The procedure for submitting nominations is as follows: a member may nominate another person with that person’s consent, or a member may self-nominate. All nominations must be accompanied by a 100-word biography narrative statement with one to two sentences about why he/she wants to serve on the Board.
The call for nominations will be open in August, after which a slate of candidates will be sent to you by email, and voting by electronic ballot will take place for a period of 30 days before the annual fall conference. Paper ballots will also be available at the Annual Museums Alaska Conference, starting September 27 in Anchorage and due during the Annual Business meeting on Thursday, September 28, 2017. Newly elected board members will be announced at the conclusion of the Annual Business Meeting.
