TEA Seeking New Board Members: TEA is very fortunate to have several dedicated and talented board members that work together as a team throughout each month to maintain and improve the education and awareness so necessary to the EM community. However, we continue to seek capable and committed individuals to serve on TEA’s all-volunteer board.
If you have a great interest in supporting TEA and can meet via teleconference (from the comfort of your own home) for 2 hours one evening a month, please send an email with your name, address, phone number and a brief description of why you are interested in volunteering for TEA and what areas of experience/knowledge you have had that will lend to your service on the board (i.e. web administration, grant-writing, governance, law, fundraising) to email@example.com.
