Run for the Board

PSIA/AASI Intermountain needs YOU! This year’s election for the Board of Directors is coming up soon, and we would like to encourage you to run!

Board of Directors Information

The Intermountain Division Board of Directors consists of PSIA-AASI members who volunteer their time and expertise to the board. They are responsible for the strategic management of our nonprofit corporation. Board members represent the PSIA-AASI membership. They represent their ski schools and the Intermountain Division. The board operates by following our Policies and Procedures along with our Bylaws.
What should members want and need from their Directors?
We all want a board member who has passion for the organization, a willingness to volunteer their time, and the desire to be a leader. A board member should have a team-oriented attitude. The board member works to speak with one voice for the entire board.
What is it all about?
The board meets three times a year in Salt Lake City (summer, fall and spring). Beginning with the summer meeting, there is a strategic planning session that reviews membership data such as
membership demographics, event and exam data, and financials of the organization. This is a fact-based assessment of our financial stability and a review of the membership’s needs. Revisions to Policies and Procedures, such as electronic voting process from ballots, event cancellation, and policy changes are some examples of what the board reviews. The code of conduct creation,
travel reimbursement, and clinic discount pass changes are other examples of the board’s work. The board is also fun! We plan the Spring Clinic, discuss new ideas for education, meet new people, and overall learn how our organization that we belong to runs!
