In 2007, the Leadership Team was created for both development of leadership for the organization and to give members the experience of working on the ACO board without making a full two year commitment—a sort of a junior board position. ACO members who have shown interest and initiative are identified and invited by the Board of Directors to participate. Terms run from January through June and from July through December—just 6-months. Team members attend board meetings and participate in discussions. They pitch in when they see something that needs doing and that is a good fit for their interests, skills, and availability. Some Leadership Team members have gone on to take full board positions. Some take initiative for a task that they make their own and continue to take responsibility for. Some work on committees, or are just available for the occasional task when their particular expertise is a good fit. Most of our current board members started out on the Leadership Team. They’ve said things like, “This is the best run organization I’ve ever participated in,” and “I learned so much about how to get things done in a group!”
Here’s what you get as a member of the Leadership Team:
- a chance to be part of the weekly decision making for your professional membership organization
- a chance to develop skills that can benefit you now and in the future
- national and international level opportunities that can benefit your career
- a ready-made team to inspire you if you’re feeling isolated in your professional life
- the satisfaction of doing something worthwhile with like minded people
- and, it’s just plain fun!
