NOTA is still looking to fill the Secretary position. We are contacting to kindly ask you if you would be willing to step in to serve as a Secretary on the NOTA Executive Committee. Please note that while this is a volunteering position, the benefits of serving on NOTA Executive Committee are enormous. Not only you will be able to network with other language specialistsand share the knowledge about our industry, you will also be given a unique opportunity to demonstrate your leadership skills and to serve the community of language professionals.
Please see the position description below:
Paragraph VII – Secretary: The Secretary shall give notice of and attend all NOTA business meetings and keep minutes thereof. In the absence or disability of the Secretary, the Executive Committee shall appoint a Secretary pro tem.
The Secretary position is a two-year commitment and will only require at most 12 hours over the year. The NOTA Board meets quarterly for approximately one hour, either in person or virtually (via Skype). NOTA requires a quorum to exist and currently does not meet that standard.
