ASME’s Board of Directors would like to invite applications from the membership to apply to join the Board as a Director. This is to enable interested members who wish to make an active contribution to ASME, gain experience and insight into how a Board operates, influence policy and/or ideas and to provide fresh and possibly alternative viewpoints/ideas to the Board.
Our Articles of Association require that the Board renews/refreshes the Board through a three yearly cycle of Directors and as such, we are now looking for two new Directors to join the Board and to also assume an Office Bearer role, specifically Director of Career Groups (JASME and TASME) and Director of Events. A role description for the Director of Career Groups is HERE and the description for Director of Events can be seen HERE
Appointment of Directors by the Board process
If you would like to apply to join the Board as a Director, you should submit your CV and up to a 300 word statement outlining your background and experience and what you would bring to ASME generally and also specifically.
Confirmation from your Line Manager and/or Institution of their support/agreement for this role should also be attached to the statement.
All Directors are required to be active and current individual members of ASME.
If you would like to apply, please forward your statement, CV and your Line Manager’s agreement to Ms Sarah Innes, HR Manager at: firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday 30th June 2018.
It is anticipated that interviews will be held soon afterwards, possibly at the ASM (if the short listed applicant is attending, otherwise at a later date).
Please note that no remuneration is paid to Directors, but expenses for attending Board meetings etc are reimbursed in line with ASME’s expenses policy.
