Board Applications

We want YOU to run for AUTM’s Board!

The application period to run for a seat on AUTM 's 2021 Board of Directors closed Oct. 15, 2020.

We encourage all our qualifying Members to consider throwing their hats in the ring. Need coaxing? Learn from incoming Board Chair Laura Savatski about the benefits of being on the Board. And it’s important that our Board is diverse, writes Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee Member Gayatri Varma in a recent column. Read both of these insightful pieces.
 
This fall, AUTM members will elect four new Board members for 2021. One of the four open positions includes the Board Treasurer position. The newly elected Directors will begin their terms at the conclusion of AUTM’s 2021 Annual Meeting, March 14 – 17.

Voting will start October 26 and conclude November 24. Each candidate will be considered for their record of service with AUTM, experience in the field of technology transfer, ability to work in a team, leadership qualities, and strategic vision for our Association.
 
In order to be a candidate for the position and serve as a Director, you must be a Regular Member or an Emeritus Member in Good Standing at the time you submit candidate materials.

Members will vote for three general candidates and the Treasurer position through a dual-ballot process.
