ATIF is a non-profit professional association run by volunteers. Our Board is composed of an Executive Committee whose members are the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, and an odd number of Directors. Following the example of many professional organizations with the goal of ensuring continuity in its leadership, ATIF holds elections annually. Each member is elected for a two-year term and the overlapping created by annual elections allows for incoming and outgoing members to work together.
All members can nominate candidates and Active members in good standing can nominate themselves since they are eligible to run for office according to our Bylaws. A roster of ATIF members can be easily obtained by clicking on Search Now! in the Directory without choosing any parameter. Please press [CLOSE] on the search form prompt in the results page
How do I select a candidate? – Being part of a large group usually means we don’t get to meet and know everyone. That becomes an issue when elections come about, and we are aware of it. The document Candidates Selection provides guidelines on how to identify good Board candidates. We urge you to read it so you can exercise your right to vote and help steer ATIF’s future.
I am interested in running, but what is the job description? – You definitely should not commit to the unknown. The document Officers’ Duties was created to explain what is expected of Board members. We hope that you will feel motivated to run for office!
I am interested in running. How do I find out what I am getting into? Usually, you will learn mostly on the job. But a great place to start is by familiarizing yourself with our Bylaws.
How can I communicate with the Nominating Committee? Just write to firstname.lastname@example.org. The domain is independent of ATIF’s to ensure transparency and freedom of communications between the members and the Nominations Committee and among the Nominations Committee members themselves.
I still have more questions. Who do I talk with? The members of the Board will be happy to answer your questions. We have a general email address that reaches all members at once (email@example.com) or you can choose a direct email from out Contact page. You can click here to meet our Board.
