Dear IAML colleagues,
IAML is seeking a new Secretary General to take up the position after the Leipzig Congress in July 2018.
This is a key position within IAML, responsible for running the day-to-day business of the Association.
Main activities include preparing agendas for Board and General Assembly meetings, taking minutes for all these meetings, and ensuring that elections are administered correctly.
The SG must be fluent in English. Working knowledge of one or both of IAML's other official languages, French and German, can be helpful. There is assistance available when it comes to editing and translating official documents.
The Secretary General receives an honorarium of €2000 per annum. If necessary the Association will cover travel and accommodation for Board meetings and congresses. The congress fee is waived for the SG.
A full Job Description is available at http://www.iaml.info/news/position-open-secretary-general
There is no application form. Candidates should send a CV and covering letter to the current Secretary General by 30 September 2017. Short-listed candidates will be interviewed via Skype later this autumn.
To be SG is a time-consuming but very rewarding job requiring an orderly mind, patience, organizational skills, social skills, and, above all, a true interest in IAML and its mission.
This is a golden opportunity for anybody who would like to become closely involved in the workings of IAML. For me it has been a wonderful experience. It has been most gratifying to serve our Association this way and I have greatly enjoyed communicating with so many colleagues around the world. I am very happy to answer any questions prospective candidates might have.
