The AAUW-PA state board is actively seeking nominations for the following officers for a two-year term from 2021-2023:
Membership Vice-President: The membership vice president is specifically responsible for planning, coordinating, implementing, and reporting membership activities.
Secretary: The secretary shall record and keep minutes of all business, board, and special meetings and is the member designated to record and make available upon request the minutes of each meeting and board meeting. The secretary shall perform such other duties as the president and board shall direct.
Finance Officer: The finance officer shall be responsible for collecting, distributing, and accounting for the funds of the Affiliate and for meeting specific deadlines. The finance officer shall serve as custodian of all funds and securities and as the designated contact for finance to AAUW.
The state board currently meets four times annually: in July, October, January, and April (at the State Convention or Annual Business Meeting). The January meeting is typically held on Zoom or by conference call. Other meetings will be in person or virtual, as conditions warrant. In 2020, all meetings have been virtual, and the board is polled ahead of time as to their preference on this.
Board expenses related to the position and for attendance at in-person meetings, when they are held, are reimbursed by AAUW-PA.
