General FAQs about the Board
- What will I do as a board member?
- Board members contribute as thought leaders, event contributors, writers, lead generators, committee members, etc. Generally, a board member may work on a committee to coordinate an event like IMPACT or a virtual conference. They may also work with the Sponsorship director on lead generation.
- When are the meetings?
- The board meets for its general meeting as a conference call monthly for one hour. The board meets for a half-day retreat in conjunction with the IMPACT conference annually. The board may also elect to meet for 1-2 additional in-person meetings during the year for a full or half-day. Virtual participation is generally possible, though not preferred for these meetings.
- What is the estimated time commitment?
- Standard board meetings are monthly for one hour. Committee and task force time commitments depend on the project or initiative and its timeline. Active time in meetings will generally not exceed 6 hours per month. But “offline” work may require up to 15 hours per month. It is all very dependent on your committee and task force work.
- Is there a financial commitment?
- CMG board members are asked to help CMG solicit sponsors, members, and partners. Board members are asked to “give or get” a contribution of personal significance to CMG annually.
- Do I need to be in enterprise IT?
- Not at all! But an awareness of the technology industry and its ecosystem is important.
- Can I volunteer without being a board member?
