As Some of you may know the PKU Organization of Wisconsin was founded in 1995 and ran for nearly eight years. Due to recent need for support in Wisconsin the organization is being reactivated, and we are trying to use as many social medias to get the word out that we are in need of local board members!!
Applications for board members have uploaded to the website:
http://www.pkuorganizationofwisconsin.info under the 'New Board Info' link. If you are interested in a position you may apply now. We have space for up to thirteen motivated individuals who are passionate about serving the PKU and allied disorder community.
Here are a few important notes to keep in mind:
***Beginning in March 2012 board meetings will be held the first Sunday of every month at 3:00 pm. These meetings are mandatory for board members. Those living more than 45 minutes out of the Milwaukee area will be allowed to attend via webinar and/or phone conference.
***In January 2013 board meetings will become quarterly (January, April, July, and October), and we will do our best to coordinate them with the organization's events. These meetings are mandatory for board members. Those living more than 45 minutes out of the Milwaukee area will be allowed to attend via webinar and/or phone conference.
***All members must sit on and participate in a committee. At the moment these committees include fundraising, event planning, and membership with the possibility of expansion later.
***We do not currently have anyone holding the position of President, Vice President, Treasurer, or Secretary. In May 2012 we will begin to accept applications for the Board of Directors, and at the June 2012 meeting we will vote on these positions. Those who already hold positions as board members will be given preference over those who do not. None of these positions will go to myself or Michelle Hardy.
***Commitment agreements will be signed on an annual basis.
I just wanted to note that after facing a few obstacles the PKU Organization of Wisconsin, Inc. is back on track, and we are still accepting board member applications. Our first board meeting will be March 4th, 2012 at 3:00 pm, so send in your applications as soon as possible!
If you are not sure if you would like to be a board member or are not eighteen years of age yet you are more than welcome to attend the first meeting as a volunteer and/or observer. To do so please RSVP by calling our voicemail only number at 414-207-4PKU or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
