The Society is seeking candidates for the position of Treasurer of ASM International. The treasurer is an officer of the Board of Trustees and chairs the Finance Committee. The treasurer is also a member of the Investment Committee and chair of the Audit Committee. Commitment involves travel to one to two meetings per year and participation in virtual meetings. The Treasurer works closely with ASM’s CFO and the financial staff at the Dome, who provide ample support of the Society’s accounting practices, researching historical data, preparing meeting agendas, and more.
ASM’s Constitution states that the treasurer must be an Individual Professional member of the Society. It is recommended that the treasurer have a good understanding of finance and accounting, and the ability to associate ASM's finances with ASM's vision and strategy for the best use of the organization's resources. Prior experience in the volunteer leadership of ASM is also helpful.
Once applications are received, the treasurer is nominated by a five-person Nominating Committee for Treasurer that will review candidates and present their nominee to the Board for approval. This committee is convened to select a treasurer and is separate from the Nominating Committee for vice president and trustees. Although the treasurer is officially appointed for a one-year term, reappointment for multiple years is typical. Therefore, planning on a three-year term or longer is reasonable.
For more information or to be considered for this position, contact either ASM Treasurer John Kuli at email@example.com or ASM Chief Financial Officer, Veronica Becker at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants should submit a short letter explaining why they would like to serve as treasurer along with a 2-3 page resume and 2-5 letters of support to Leslie.Taylor@asminternational.org by March 20th.
