AAO Board of Directors Election - 2020 Nomination Process

20 Feb 2020 12:13 PM | Anonymous

Nominations are currently being accepted for two (2) positions on the Board of Directors of the AAO. Each term will commence upon election at the AAO’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), to be held on May 15, 2020, in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Volunteering as a Director on the AAO Board offers an invaluable professional development experience. It provides candidates with an opportunity to network with other professionals in the field, develop their leadership skills, and to apply their existing knowledge and skill set to the service of Ontario’s archival community.

The positions that are currently open for nominations include:

Vice-President/President Elect: Three-year term (May 2020 – May 2023)

The Vice-President/President Elect (VP) serves as the deputy to the President, and provides assistance in all aspects of Board planning and policy decision-making. Along with the President, the VP may represent the AAO at meetings with the Association's stakeholders and within the broader Canadian archival community. Specific duties include:

  • Liaising with AAO Standing and Special Committees and/or Sub-committees thereof, and Special Interest Groups (SIGs);

  • Performing the duties of the President in cases of absence or inability; and

  • Supporting the President in providing general supervision of the operations of the AAO, its staff, and the secretariat office.

The VP assumes the position of President in the second year of their term; and in the third year serves as a non-voting member of the Board in the capacity of Past President.

Director Without Portfolio: Two-year term (May 2020 – May 2022)

The Director Without Portfolio position provides assistance in the general governing of the affairs of the Association. Specific duties may therefore include:

  • Serving as a Board liaison to one or more of the Standing and Special Committees of the AAO, and/or Sub-committees thereof;

  • Participating fully in Board decision-making; and

  • Contribute to the development of Association policies, procedures and guidelines.
