Are you looking for ways to become more involved with AMATYC? Do you enjoy organizing meetings or conferences? Do you love a chance to work with others? AMATYC is looking for its next Conference Coordinator. This person must be energetic, organized and self-motivated. The new Conference Coordinator will ‘shadow’ Keven Dockter, AMATYC’s current Conference Coordinator and then take over the position for a 5-year term.

The Conference Coordinator (CC) oversees and manages all aspects of the annual AMATYC conference. The CC chairs the conference committee, composed of individuals responsible for the program, exhibits, advertising, publications and local arrangements. The CC is the budget manager for most conference expenses.

This is a supported position that requires year-round work, often many hours per week. Extended travel time is required to participate in Executive Board meetings and, with the assistance of a professional conference planning organization. to conduct visits to potential, current, and future conference sites. Contract negotiation and monitoring is also required related to hotels, convention centers, audio visual and exhibitor companies.

Candidates must have excellent organizational skills including attention to details, written and verbal communication skills, budget management skills, and the ability to work collegially with leaders in the organization and in the hotel and conference industries. Significant conference planning experience and knowledge of AMATYC is required.

Minimum Qualifications:

      Be a self-starter with good organizational and communication skills, and the ability to facilitate the efforts of others;

      Show evidence of budget management;

      Have conference planning experience;

      Have some supervisory skills;

      Be able to travel regularly and maintain a flexible schedule;

      Be able to work without direction and possess good interpersonal skills;

      Be able to communicate effectively orally and in writing;

      Be conversant about AMATYC’s mission, goals, strategic plan, and activities; and

      Be knowledgeable about mathematics education at two-year colleges and have a passion for mathematics education improvement;

The new Conference Coordinator will begin duties at this fall’s conference by shadowing the current CC. A phase-in period of 1-2 years is planned during which the new CC will gradually assume the responsibilities of Conference Coordinator. The CC is expected to be an AMATYC member during the term of service.

Interested candidates should submit a vita, a letter of support from a supervisor, and a personal letter describing their qualifications and experience related to this position. A detailed list of Conference Coordinator duties is available here. Potential candidates should contact search committee chair Anne Dudley with any questions. All materials should be emailed to no later than August 20, 2018.
