Nominations for AUGI Board of Directors 2009 - 2010 are now open!

It's Nomination Time Again at AUGI.com - October 2009
October 2nd is just the beginning... of what? A fantastic and rewarding experience for any hardworking volunteer!

So what’s happening today? Members are given yet another way to be involved with AUGI. You can do this either by nominating someone for the Board of Directors or throwing your own hat into the ring for the next term.

Being a Director requires some work, effort and carries responsibility, but it offers many rewards as well. So how do I apply, you may ask? All the details can be found here.

If you are considering running for the Board, keep in mind that they meet in person three times per year. In January, June and at Autodesk University near year's end (for a combined total of about two weeks minimum). There are also monthly teleconferences to keep everyone on the same page. So, you can anticipate about 15-20 hours per month (maybe more, depending on the level of your involvement).

Nominations need to be submitted to the Chairman of the Nominations and Elections Committee no later than Midnight (CST), October 26, 2009.
