It’s that time of year again! We’re starting to plan for 2012 and need volunteers for the PRSA Midwest District board positions below. To ensure our District meets the needs of all chapters, we’d like to have involvement from each of our 15 chapters. If you are interested, please contact Renee Robinson, 2011 District Chair.
- Chair-Elect – The Chair-elect presides at meetings of the District Board of directors in the absence of the Chair, attends the annual leadership rally in New York City, and assumes the role of Chair if the position becomes vacant. Will become chair in 2013. Must have chapter board experience, as well as prior involvement with the Midwest District.
- Treasurer – The District Treasurer will handle dues collection (when approved), propose the District budget, set up the District bank account, and provide financial reports to the District Board at each monthly Board meeting. When we begin collecting dues, the Treasurer shall annually file tax statements with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as required.
- Secretary – The District Secretary keeps and distributes minutes of all meetings of the District Board of directors. Will lead development of the District bylaws.
Directors-at-large (one per chapter)
Ideally, those representing chapters will have chapter board experience. Many chapters appoint their past-president, president, president-elect or assembly delegate as their representative. The time commitment is approximately 1-2 hours per month for conference calls.
Nominating Committee Representative
Will represent the Midwest District on the National Nominating Committee. Must be an accredited member of PRSA.
2012 District Conference Planning Committee
Additionally, thanks to Jim Streed and Herb Ritchell, we are moving forward with plans for a 2012 District Conference and need a strong committee to make it happen. We’ve already had quite a few people interested in helping, but have room for a few more. If you or someone from your chapter is interested in joining the committee, please contact Jim.
