In an effort to answer any questions from members about the Board Expansion Initiative, the Board has scheduled a series of conference calls over the next few weeks as a way for members to ask questions of the Board and Executive Director about AMIA's future and the Expansion Initiative.
August 2 - 10:00am (PST) August 4 - 10:00am (PST) August 8 - 10:00am (PST) August 10 - 10:00am (PST)
If you would like to participate in one of the scheduled calls, please send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve a spot and receive the conference call information.
In 2005, as part of an ongoing strategic planning process, the AMIA Board launched several initiatives to strengthen the organization's infrastructure and financial footing. A key step in this dynamic shift has been the arrival this spring of Keith LaQua, AMIA’s first Executive Director.
Keith brings to his new role more than 25 years of experience in the management of non-profit organizations, including stints at the Artists Rights Foundation at the Directors Guild of America, The Pasadena Symphony, CARE, USC School of Business Administration, and public television stations KOCE-TV, WHA-TV and Prairie Public Broadcasting.
In July, the Library of Congress, New York University and the Academy Film Archive will host three opportunities for you, the AMIA membership, to get together, meet Keith, and share your ideas for AMIA’s future directions.
July 18th - Washington DC 11:45am - Library of Congress
July 19th - New York, NY 5:30pm - New York University
July 26th - Los Angeles, CA 5:00pm - Academy Film Archive
It's important that you RSVP if you're able to attend (go to www.AMIAnet.org). The meetings are intended for AMIA members only, but if you have a colleague who isn't a member yet - this is a great chance to get acquainted with AMIA.
