Thank you for your interest in becoming a board member of AAF PHX. Before applying we would like to advise on board member expectations as AAF PHX is a “working” board and a board member must be a member of the club in good standing with a current membership. We hold monthly board meetings every third Wednesday, a board member must attend these meetings either in person or via the phone. We also would like our board members to be present at our events, attending/volunteering at least 5 a year. A board member is required to chair or lead on one event or committee. Upon board approval, there is a three-month probationary period. Your position will become under review if you miss more than three board meetings and do not regularly attend events.
Board Nominations are due May 24th. The Nominating Committee will prepare a slate of candidates to fill the four open positions consisting of qualified and willing Members who are current in their financial obligation to the AAF at the start of the fiscal year when each assumes their elected office. The Committee shall report the final slate to the Board of Directors in May for acceptance via electronic communication. This is the opportunity for an active board director to contest the slate. If there is a conflict the Executive Director will notify the Nominating Committee and the committee will revisit that board position and revise the slate if there is a quorum. Publication of this slate shall be made to the general Membership in June, where the membership has 14 days to approve or contest the slate of directors. If no response from the membership is received the slate will be accepted as presented.
Appointment of the board will be held at the Annual Meeting, which is the first regular meeting in July.
