Directors-at-large serve on the round table executive board.

Inaugural Year of Board

For the inaugural year of the board, all five seats are on the 2012 ballot (bylaws implementation plan; bylaws).  The three candidates winning the highest number of votes will serve two-year terms.  Those candidates getting fewer votes will serve one-year terms.  The result will be staggered terms for directors-at-large in the future.  Beginning in the 2013 election, all directors-at-large will serve two-year terms. 
The Directors-at-large will:

  • support the duties of the executive board as listed in the “Executive Board” Section of this document;
  • attend all executive board and membership meetings; and
  • serve as ex officio member of two round table committees on behalf of the board.  In that capacity, board liaisons will:
    • attend committee meetings when possible;
    • exchange information with chairs and members when attendance is not possible;
    • exchange information with the committee chair and members throughout the year;
    • inform the executive board of committee plans, needs, activities, and issues between Annual Conferences and Midwinter Meetings;
    • report activities to the committee’s executive board liaison;
    • participate in committee deliberations via email and other channels;
    • relay information between the board and assigned committees; and
    • provide advice or assistance as needed.
