AMSA Announcements

  1. AMSA By-Law Amendment Update 12/7/2018

    The votes have been tallied and the members have approved the change. Our bylaws will be updated changing all language formerly referring to the Executive Director to now refer to Chief Executive Officer. Thank you for participating in the voting process.

  2. AMSA CEO Search and Job Announcement Update 12/7/2018

    The CEO Search Committee has presented a CEO Job Description and job announcement for approval by the AMSA Board of Directors. The member input that we received from the online survey was very helpful. The Committee has also put together a spread sheet that will be used to score candidates based on their qualifications in categories deemed "necessary" and "preferred." This spread sheet will be used as a screening tool of candidates. The CEO position will be open for applicants as soon as the Board of Directors approves the job description. A special conference call is planned for December 10, 2018 and if approved, the job will be posted shortly after. If you have any questions, please email eric.p.berg@ndsu.edu.
