The TEI Consortium seeks applicants to fill the TEI-C Treasurer position, which will be appointed by the Board of Directors as a non-voting member of the Board. This is a three-year position, January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2020, which requires a minimum 3-month notice if position is to be vacated before the end of the term. This is an essential position for the TEI-C Board of Directors with global outreach and strategic decision-making on behalf of the TEI-C membership. The position in turn would offer valuable experience in managing a large budget (because that's awesome).
The role of Treasurer is generally described in the TEI-C Bylaws as follows:
The Treasurer shall collect, have custody of and be responsible for all funds of the Consortium, shall keep an accurate account of such funds, shall pay all just bills when due and funds are available, and shall prepare and submit such financial reports as are legally required by the fiscal authorities. In addition the Treasurer shall report to the Membership on the financial affairs of the Consortium during the past year at the Annual Meeting. All checks, drafts, invoices, notices and orders for the payment or receipt of money issued by the Consortium and other similar documents requiring the signature of the Consortium shall be signed by the Treasurer or by such other person or persons as the Board of Directors may from time to time designate for this purpose.
