About the NYCMER Board
NYCMER’s governing body is the Board of Trustees, nominated by NYCMER Members and consisting of current NYCMER Members all serving in non-salaried positions. The Board consists of four elected Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary & Peer Groups Liaison, Treasurer); five Appointed Trustees (Archivist, Membership Coordinator, Resources & Social Media Coordinator, Event and Job Listings Coordinator and Website Coordinator); and no fewer than eight elected Trustees-at-Large. No more than three Trustees may have the same full-time institutional affiliation.
The Board's obligation to its members is to govern in a style that embraces and supports diversity on many levels, including but not limited to race, ability, and identity, incorporates a spectrum of perspectives, and emphasizes the importance of equity.
The purposes of the Board as set forth in its 501(c)(3) Certificate of Incorporation are:
- to address issues of museum and educational interest;
- to exchange and disseminate relevant information;
- to explore and implement cooperative programming opportunities through roundtable discussions, workshops, seminars, symposia, professional development series, and conferences; and
- to pursue related charitable, cultural and educational purposes as permitted under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
