Have you thought about a leadership role at work but didn’t think you had the skills to perform? Gain those needed skills by running for the elected office of President and/or Treasurer. You have the skills, the mindset, the work ethic, and the support of your fellow Council members and chapter membership.
Check out the duties of each office below:
- President: The role of the STC-PMC President is to represent the chapter for the STC and to act as its liaison to the Society. The President serves as an advisor/project manager for the entire chapter, leading the Council team in delegating and completing chapter activities that help to educate, network, recruit, and maintain the chapter membership. The President determines and sets the main plan for the programming year, and communicates the information to the STC office liaisons and other STC presidents. The chapter President supports the Treasurer and the Directors at-large in their activities and helps to ensure that the activities succeed, including running regular meetings to ensure that things are running smoothly. The President is also responsible for facilitating the STC applications for Distinguished Service Chapter Awards, Community Achievement Awards, Associate Fellow nominations, and Community Pacesetter Awards.
- Treasurer/Secretary: The chapter treasurer is in charge of tracking all incoming and outgoing monies for the chapter. The bulk of this work is tied to chapter activities, such as monthly meetings, expenses, and conference expenditures. The Treasurer and President have debit cards associated with the checking account. This enables them to buy things for the chapter without requiring reimbursement, although receipts must be submitting for all transactions, and those transactions are reconciled with the chapter’s bank account on a monthly basis. The treasurer is also responsible for the submission of the yearly budget to the STC Office, and submitting any short tax forms on behalf of the chapter. The treasurer’s role is important as that person helps the chapter understand how to budget for the activities they want to do. The Secretary part of the role involves attending all the STC-PMC Council meetings, and keeping notes based on the meeting agendas.
In the coming weeks we will begin the nomination process, and we’d love to see your name on the ballot. To nominate yourself, you must be a current STC AND STC-PMC member to run for an elected position. If you enjoy being a member of STC-PMC, how about seeing what a few hours a month of your free time can do to keep the chapter going strong?
