Call for Nominations - KAM Board of Directors 2024-26

KAM LogoKAM Board Nominations are Open!

You can help the Kingston & Area Association of Museums, Art Galleries + Historic Sites (KAM) continue to advance its mission providing expertise, guidance and supporting KAM’s many committees, members, and volunteers.  With new initiatives on the horizon, KAM needs and welcome enthusiastic participation of its members on the Board of Directors.

Here are some of the main functions of a KAM Board member:  oversee the direction and management of the association, lead specific projects and action teams, recruit new members, contribute to the association’s financial success, and represent KAM as available.  KAM’s Board of Directors is a collaborative board who works to make a difference for our membership. 

In 2023-2024 the Board transitioned from a 1-year term to a 2-year term for each Director with half the Board offset by one year to allow continuity.  For the upcoming election there are five Director positions available for the period 2024-2026.  Directors are also limited to two terms; at which time they are asked to stand aside to encourage constant revitalisation of the Board.

Please note: election to the Board of Directors occurs at the AGM, but individual positions/portfolios are confirmed at the first Board meeting in April.
