Treasurer. The Treasurer shall: monitor staff handling of finances and review reports to the Board on all funds and securities of the Corporation; ensure that bank accounts are appropriately maintained by staff; and perform those duties incident to the office of Treasurer and others that may be assigned by the Board of Directors.
Ethics Committee Member. The Ethics committee oversees the board’s conflicts of interest and advises the board on governance. The Ethics committee nominees should therefore have an interest, and preferably experience, in governance. This is a 2-year term.

Time Commitment & Expenses for the Board of Directors
The ISMTE Board of Directors meets monthly by conference call, on a schedule determined at the beginning of each year. Owing to the geographical diversity of its members, we schedule these calls to allow all members to participate. It is expected that every board member will attend each of these monthly calls and prepare for them by submitting committee/focus area reports and reviewing the agenda and supporting materials in advance.
The ISMTE Board of Directors also meets annually, face-to-face at the same location as one of the annual meetings. It is anticipated that every board member will attend this annual in-person meeting, to ensure a quorum, and prepare for it by submitting committee/focus area reports and reviewing the agenda and supporting materials in advance.
ISMTE board members are not compensated for their roles as Directors or Officers. ISMTE will reimburse Board members for coach air travel or other transportation means to the annual meeting site for the face-to-face Board meeting, as well as for one hotel night. An expense form will be provided at the Board meeting.
