As you consider completing a Declaration of Candidacy, please remember you are making the following minimum time commitment:
•The Board has four in-person meetings each year: one immediately before the Annual Conference, one immediately after the Annual Conference, one in the fall, and one immediately before the Midyear Conference.
•In addition to Board meetings, the Board has a minimum of three conference calls each year. These calls are usually scheduled in September, January, and May and typically last two hours.
•Officers have a minimum of six conference calls each year in addition to the Board calls. These are usually scheduled in August, November, December, February, April, and June and typically last two hours.
•The time commitment for a Board member averages 2-3 days per month. For Board members assigned to serve as Committee Chairs, the time commitment increases and will vary with the work of the committee. As an Officer, each progressive year becomes more of a commitment.
•In addition to the calls mentioned above, all Board members are expected to participate in a number of committee conference calls each month and are responsible for numerous outputs and products, all of which will vary in terms of the amount of time required to see the project to completion.
•The cost to attend Board meetings immediately before and after the Annual Conference is at your expense in that it is assumed you will attend the Annual Conference. The cost for your travel, per diem, and sleeping room for the Midyear and Fall Board meetings will be paid by NACM, assuming funding is available. In addition, your conference registration fee is waived for the Annual and Midyear Conferences. Any additional travel on behalf of NACM, as assigned by the President, will be paid for by NACM or the organization that has requested NACM’s attendance.
