The Day and a Life of a Board Member
It is scary to say yes to volunteering. You have to ask a lot of questions that go with a commitment like this.
Why might you want to volunteer for your professional organization? Maybe to give back to the profession for the help and benefits it gives you, help others in your field, learn a new skill, make business connections, and to build your resume, to name a few.
But, what does it mean to be an amta elected official?
There are three board positions and a delegate position up for election this year you can read the nitty gritty about the exact duties in the buttons below.
Position commitments are for 2 years. *This year we have a 1 yr board member position to add to the election.

- We have a conference call once a month to work on motions, discussions, any voting that needs done, and committee sharing.
- We have live board meetings a few times a year: at Spring and Fall education and in January we meet to work on the next year’s budget.
