2024 Executive Board Election

6 Jun 2024 13:13 | Kristen LaBonte (Administrator)

IAMSLIC is seeking volunteers and nominations for the following IAMSLIC Executive Board offices:  Jr. President-Elect and Treasurer. These are both excellent professional development and leadership opportunities. The election will take place prior to our annual conference. 

Our bylaws describe the duties and our procedures for the election. The Junior President-Elect commitment is for 3 years (and includes Senior President-Elect, and President). The Treasurer commitment is for 2 years with the ability for re-election. Please note that the Treasurer must be located in the United States due to our bank location. Details are below.


Section 1:  President.  The President shall be the chief executive officer of the Association, and subject to the Board, shall have general supervision and control over its affairs; shall preside at all meetings of the Association and of the Board; shall recommend to the Board such measures considered desirable to further the objectives and broaden the effectiveness of the Association; shall sign all contracts and other legal documents affecting IAMSLIC as a whole, but excluding those contracts or legal documents which affect only a Regional Group; shall be a member ex officio of all committees; shall represent the Association at meetings of other professional organizations, or, if unable to attend, shall designate a member of the Association to serve as alternative representative; shall, with the Board, approve such reports as may be required; and shall be responsible for other Association business as may be required by these Bylaws or by vote of the Board.

Section 2:  President-Elect-(Senior and Junior).  The Senior President-Elect shall assist the President in the performance of the duties of the presidency; and in the event of absence or withdrawal of the President, shall assume all the duties and obligations of the presidency.  The Senior President-Elect shall serve as Chair of the Conference Program Committee and shall have overall responsibility for the planning and technical program of the Annual Conference to take place two years after election to office.  The Junior President-Elect will assist with maintenance of Executive Board web pages, official documents on the IAMSLIC website, such as annual reports, and conference website, when needed.

Section 4:  Treasurer.  The Treasurer shall be in charge of the Association’s funds and/or assessments; shall have established proper accounting procedures for the handling of the Association’s funds; shall be responsible for keeping of the funds in such banks, trust companies, and/or investments as are approved by the Board.  He/she shall report on the financial condition of the Association at all meetings of the Board and at other times when called upon by the President.  The Treasurer shall allocate funds to the Regional Groups based on the February 1st census prepared by the Membership Database Manager.  At the end of each fiscal year (September 30), the Treasurer shall prepare an annual report.  At the expiration of the term of office, the Treasurer shall deliver over to his/her successor all books, money, and other property in his/her charge or, in the absence of a successor, shall deliver such properties to the President.

Please let me know if you have any questions and send me a statement of intent if you are interested in running for either of these positions. Also, please let me know if you have another member in mind that I can reach out to who would be a good leader. 

Thank you on behalf of the membership committee,

Kristen LaBonte, chair
