At MITA’s most recent Board of Directors meeting, a process was determined regarding how members should make it onto the MITA Board of Directors. The first step is an application process that will be reviewed by the MITA Executive Board, which will then be sorted by current board openings and needs. The goal of this process is to create a balance between the various disciplines performed by MITA members and to provide regional representation. The Executive Board will then bring recommendations to the full Board of Directors for final approval. This process will apply to contractors and associate members of MITA and will commence this year.
There are no wrong answers on the application, and many of the questions could be answered for you by MITA. However, the following bullet points should help you determine what MITA’s Executive Board is looking for in a potential board member and should be considered before filling out an application.
Can I make it to five, in-person board meetings throughout the year?
Am I an owner or high-level executive of my organization?
Am I willing to attend more MITA events than I currently attend?
Will I be vested in the process?
Can I do this potentially for 8 years? (Contractor)
Can I do this for a year? (Associate)
