Monday, November 25, 2019

The Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) of ASCE is looking for potential candidates for the FY21 Board of Governors.

4-Year Elected Position

This position is elected by the membership of T&DI. The Governor is expected to participate in the monthly Board meetings (2 or 3 face-to-face meetings annually and monthly teleconferences in-between. The face-to-face meetings are generally 1.5 days and the teleconferences generally last no more than 90 minutes.) In the first year, the governor acts as the Institute's Treasurer. The Treasurer works with the Institute Director on the budget for the following fiscal year along with reporting on the Institute's financials at the Board of Governors meetings. The Treasurer is a member of the Awards and the Conference Committees. In the second year, the Governor acts as the Institute's Vice President. The Vice President serves as one of T&DI's two delegates to the Technical Region Board of Governors and is a member of the Conference Committee. In the third year, the Governor serves as T&DI's President. As President, the Governor chairs the Board meetings, is the senior T&DI delegate to the Technical Region Board of Governors, and serves on the Nominating Committee. In the last year, the Governor is the Institute's Past President and serves on the Awards and Nominating Committees. The Governor will serve as a liaison to one of T&DI's technical councils. The expectation is that the time required for this position is approximately 10 hours per month with a somewhat higher time commitment during the presidential year. Travel on authorized T&DI business is reimbursed in accordance with ASCE policy.

2-Year Appointed Position

The member serving in this position is appointed by the other members of the Board of Governors. The appointed Governor will serve as a voting member of the Board and as a liaison to one of the Technical Councils. The appointed Governor is expected to participate in the face-to-face and teleconference meetings of the Board. (See above for the details on the Board meetings.) An appointed Governor is eligible to be re-appointed for one (1) additional 2-year term. The time required for this position is approximately 5 - 8 hours per month. Travel on authorized T&DI business is reimbursed in accordance with T&DI policy.

General Criteria

Both positions require that the potential candidate be a member in good standing of both T&DI and ASCE at the time of nomination and must keep their membership in good standing for the entire time while serving on the Board of Governors. A member in good standing in any member grade, except student, is eligible to be considered for the 4-year elected position or the 2-year appointed position.
