Positions Open for the International DCDT Board 


DCDT needs your leadership, creativity and experience!  The board has five elected positions open for the coming year, which commences July 1st, 2012.  We would like our members to be thinking about excellent candidates to recommend or nominate for the following positions: 
1. Vice President. The Vice President serves as President-Elect in the event of resignation or absence or inability to serve as the President-Elect and performs other responsibilities as designated by the President, particularly chairing the Membership Recruitment committee or serving as chair of the Conference Planning Committee. The person elected as Vice-President serves a four-year term. The first year, the elected officer will serve as Vice-President, and subsequent years as President-Elect, President, and finally as Past-President.

2. Treasurer. The Treasurer shall receive and distribute, upon proper authorization, all funds of DCDT. He/She shall keep accurate record or receipts and expenditures and present a written report at each annual meeting. The records of the Treasurer shall be audited annually by an Auditing Committee, specially chosen for this purpose. During the second year of the Treasurer's term of office the Auditing Committee shall select a financial professional to audit the records prior to their transfer to the new Treasurer. The Treasurer, with assistance from the President, shall draw up a proposed budget for the forthcoming year and submit it in writing to the Board and membership for approval at the annual business meeting.

3. Secretary. The Secretary shall keep accurate minutes of all general meetings of DCDT and of meetings of the Committee. He/She shall carry on correspondence as necessary in regard to matters as delegated by the President.
