The TKMA Board of Directors is a working board; meaning, there are no paid staff, and are an all-volunteer-operated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Board members assume the responsibilities of a paid staff person, so all members share in these responsibilities.
TKMA members in good standing may apply for open seats on the Board of Directors. Elections will be conducted online through the Election Runner online program. Members will receive their online ballot via email. Election results will be announced at the Annual Membership Meeting.
The 2017-18 Board of Directors Candidate Application information is listed below. You may copy the application from this newsletter, scan your completed application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or I can email you the application as an attachment.
