Board of Directors and Elections
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
MPMA’s Board of Directors is responsible for managing the organization and for setting its policies and future direction. It includes elected officers: the president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and immediate past president, each of whom serves one two- year term. The board’s other elected members are nine board members-at-large who are elected in groups of three new board members each year, each of whom serves one three-year term. Other voting board members include a representative from each of MPMA’s ten states and from its professional committees that have achieved standing professional status and are known as Standing Professional Committees (SPC).
Regular board meetings are held twice a year: at the annual meeting in the fall and in the early winter. The Midwinter Meeting is where MPMA’s strategic planning occurs.
If you or someone you know would like to be considered for MPMA’s board of directors, please contact MPMA at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may nominate yourself.
There are three great reasons for serving on this board: it is stimulating and educational, it is a great way to meet new colleagues and thus broaden your network, and it is rewarding as you get to contribute to the growth and direction of this regional museum association.
The nomination period for MPMA’s board of directors opens between January and April. Elections are held April through June.
