The Alliance for Community Media, a public, education and government channel advocate, is currently accepting nominations for three at-large seats for the ACM’s board, and it will be accepting nominations through May 29, according to the organization.
The ACM says nominations should be submitted to the ACM using the official “nomination/petition form” that is available on the ACM’s website. In addition to that form, a “Summary of Board Member Responsibilities” is available at the website, the ACM says.
A final call for nominations will be made May 29 at the ACM’s Annual Membership Meeting, and each candidate must accept their nomination for an at-large seat by the close of nominations, the ACM says. A signed acceptance, or facsimile reproduction thereof, may be presented on behalf of an absent nominee, the organization says.
In addition, each nominee must complete the “board application form” by 5 p.m. PST June 10. The board application form is also available on the ACM’s website, the group says.
While the board welcomes applications from all comers, it should be clear to candidates that the ACM’s National Board is a policy-governance board and not an honorary board.
Board members are expected to participate actively in board and committee meetings, be faithful ambassadors and communicators of the organization’s positions, contribute meaningfully to helping the organization achieve its fund and leadership development goals and exercise proper fiduciary care, the ACM says.
That includes attendance at meetings around the country. To attend, board members will incur both travel and lodging expenses, much of which is not yet subsidized, the ACM says.
The qualifications for holding an ACM office is that once elected, all board members must become individual members of the ACM, and no board member may be a paid staffer of the ACM, the organization says.
