Officers & Board of Directors 2022-2023
Board of Directors (BOD)
AMGO is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership at the annual meeting. The BOD is charged with the business affairs of the Association and is responsible to the membership to ensure compliance with the policies and directives as outlined in the Constitution and Bylaws. The BOD fiduciary duty includes the duty to exercise care in the management of member fees, monitoring financial reports and loyalty to the objectives of the organization. Specific assignments and policy implementation are delegated to various committees within the organization. We encourage AMGO members to communicate with committee members and the Officers & Board of Directors. It is through this interaction that the needs and interests of AMGO's membership can be fully realized and we can ensure that the expectations of our members are being met.
One of our greatest strengths is the rich variety of perspectives and experience of our membership. Accordingly, we strongly encourage nominations that are representative of our members’ cultural, geographic, gender, and organizational diversity. Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged.
Election of Officers: Each year, the AMGO membership elects its own officers for one or two-year terms. Nominees must meet the criteria for active membership. Annual conference attendance is not required for nominations on the ballot. Officers are elected by a majority vote of the eligible members present at the Annual Meeting of the members held pursuant to Article III, Section I of the Bylaws.
