We want YOU to run for AUTM’s Board!
The application period for AUTM's 2023 Board of Directors is open! And we encourage all our qualifying Members to consider throwing their hats in the ring.
Need coaxing? Learn from Immediate Past 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 an AUTM Insight column.
This fall, AUTM will elect five (5!) new Board Members. They will begin their terms at the conclusion of AUTM’s 2023 Annual Meeting, Feb. 19-22 in Austin.
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 with at least five years' experience in the tech transfer community at the time you submit candidate materials. Board Election Timeline
