The IAML Board has established a search committee (Massimo Gentili-Tedeschi, Martie Severt, Jim Cassaro, Roger Flury) to find a new Treasurer to take office late in 2007.
Duties of the Treasurer include managing the Association's funds and accounts, collecting and making payments, and preparing an annual report, accounting summary and three-year budget. The Treasurer also maintains the membership directory, produces mailing labels and compiles the list of members. The Treasurer works closely with the President and Secretary General, is a member of the IAML Board and, ex-officio, a member of Council.
Candidates should have experience of the Association's work and of fiscal management and budgeting. They should be prepared to undertake meticulous tasks and to devote sufficient time to the Association's work, often at short notice. A good knowledge of appropriate software (currently Filemaker Pro) is essential, as is access to fax and email facilities.
An annual honorarium, currently €1790, is awarded and further essential expenses are normally covered.
Further information can be obtained from the Treasurer or the Secretary General. The present Treasurer will be happy to offer informal advice to ensure a smooth transition. Applications should reach the Secretary General as soon as possible, but no later than 30 September 2006, at the following address:
Roger Flury, Secretary General, IAML, National Library of New Zealand, P.O. Box 1467, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND.
