THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Board of Trustees is the governing board of the American Homesteading Foundation. The board meets at least once a month in open forum to conduct the business of the organization. Non-board members are allowed to speak on any agenda item. Meeting agendas and minutes are available in the AHF office.
The Board of Trustees consists of nine members each elected to a three year term. Three of the nine positions are filled by an annual election of the members by secret mail-in ballot. The nominating committee puts forth five persons for consideration plus write-in candidates are allowed.
The board elects its own officers.
The AHF has three part-time employees, the executive secretary, the bookkeeper, and the maintenance technician.
The Executive Secretary coordinates the every day operation of the organization, oversees the new member process, prepares the minutes of the annual meeting and all Board of Trustee meetings.
The Bookkeeper enters all financial transactions into the records, prepares checks to pay the bills, collects monies for pool memberships, annual assessments, and new member fees, general administrative assistance to the Executive Secretary as time allows.
The Maintenance Technician is responsible for keeping the swimming pool running smoothly, mowing, minor repairs as needed, and keeping the AHF Hall ready for use.
