Interested in learning the basics of Roberts Rules of Order? Do you get frustrated by poorly run business meetings and endless motions and seconds? Would you like to develop meeting management skills that will help not only in your AFS work but in many other aspects of your career or personal life? If so, the volunteer position of AFS Constitutional Consultant (CC) may be an opportunity that you don’t want to miss. As a non-voting member of the AFS Management Committee and Governing Board, the CC is directly involved with all the governance actions taken by AFS leadership.
The AFS CC plays a critical role in ensuring that the society and all of its units work more effectively through developing well crafted by-laws, conduct efficient business meetings, and know how to write solid motions. AFS will train you in this by assigning you as an apprentice to current CC John Boreman and pay for you to take an online course in parliamentary procedures. AFS also pays your travel expenses for attending the AFS annual meeting and the mid-year Governing Board meeting during your tenure as CC. The tenure commitment is one year as apprentice and at least two years as CC.
If you are interested in being considered for this position, please contact AFS President Steve McMullin ([email protected]). If you have questions about this position such as time demands, etc., please feel free to contact John Boreman (firstname.lastname@example.org)
