Call for Treasurer for the TEI-Consortium; Applications Due 15 December 2017

Dalmau, Michelle Denise
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. (http://www.tei-c.org/About/bylaws.xml#body.1_div.3_div.6
In practice, the role of Treasurer is largely two-fold: 
  • serving as a liaison with the TEI-C professional association management company (currently, Virtual, Inc.) and the rest of the TEI-C Board of Directors
  • vision and forecast planning for the ongoing growth of the TEI-C in close collaboration with the rest of the Board of Directors
The primary duties of the Treasurer are to:
  • sign financial documents (including checks, tax returns etc.) and approve payments on behalf of the Consortium
  • report to the Board and the membership on the finances of the Consortium
  • represent the interests of the Consortium in working with the association management company including budget planning, financial forecasting, etc.
  • support TEI-C conference and members' meeting hosts, by serving as an intermediary between the hosts, the Board of Directors, and the association management company 
Secondary duties of the Treasurer include:
  • membership strategic planning in close collaboration with the TEI-C Membership Secretary 
  • grant planning and budgeting 
The time commitment will range from 2-5 hours a week, depending on the tasks at hand. It's essential that the incumbent:
  • like spreadsheets
  • be detail-oriented
  • be easy to reach by email
Experience with managing institutional budgets and grant-writing preferred. 
The TEI-C will support the Treasurer's attendance the annual TEI conference, a reduced institutional membership rate to their employer during time in term, and a life-long TEI-C individual membership in return for their time commitment. The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium is committed to diversity and inclusion, and ensures equal opportunity to all qualified individuals. We invite applications from all including those with diverse needs, backgrounds, and abilities. 
Please indicate interest to the Chair of the TEI-C Board, Michelle Dalmau, by 15 December 2017, with a cover letter stating motivations for applying for the position and a short resume/CV highlighting the specific competencies. Send application materials to: [hidden email]. If you would like to learn more about the position, please contact John Unsworth, outgoing TEI Treasurer: [hidden email].
