2019 Museums Alaska Board Nominations
Museums Alaska is an association of active volunteers who perform many of the responsibilities of the organization, set policies, and provide future direction. The all-volunteer Board of Directors consists of nine members that represent the diversity of the state. Elected officers include: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Each board member can serve up to two consecutive three-year terms. After a year-long break, previous board members are eligible to serve on the board again.

All board members participate in the following ways:

Attend board meetings by teleconference four times per year
Attend two annual in-person board meetings
Actively participate on at least three committees
Actively promote the organization

One-third of the Board is elected each year. A Museums Alaska board member can serve two consecutive three-year 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. Board members are expected to make some appropriate level of financial contribution in addition to general membership. The nomination period for Museums Alaska’s board of directors opens in August. Elections are held in the month prior to the annual conference and new board members are announced at the conference.

This year, the call for nominations will be open through August 22, 2019. A slate of candidates will be sent to the membership by email by August 29, and voting by electronic ballot will close September 23, 2019 (no paper ballots will be available at the Annual Conference). Newly elected board members will be announced at the conclusion of the Annual Meeting at the conference on September 26, 2019.

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. All nomination information can be filled out using the form below, or can be emailed to director@museumsalaska.org.
