Why lead?

Becoming a chapter leader provides you with a plethora of opportunities to develop leadership, business, and strategic management skills. In your role, you will be able to:

  • Build Efficient & Effective Teams
  • Direct Access to National Board of Directors
  • Attract, Nurture and Develop Leaders
  • Accelerate Career Development
  • Network with Peers, Colleagues, and other industry Executives
  • Develop Your Brand
  • Opportunity to Host, Moderate and Participate on Industry Panels
  • Leadership Exposure in the media and entertainment industry
  • And while you’re at it…Have fun!

As you decide to run for office or to nominate a colleague, please consider the following:

  • Membership. Must be an active member of NAMIC and affiliated with the respective chapter you seek to lead.
  • Time Commitment. Most chapters meet once a month by phone or virtually (nine to 10 times annually); and minimal work between meetings. Also, chapter officers must attend NAMIC national quarterly meetings.
  • Terms. Officers are elected for two-year terms and can be re-elected for one additional two-year term.
  • Diverse Representation. Consider candidates not only of varied cultural backgrounds but also company and job functionality. The chapter will be stronger with those who can contribute their background and expertise in areas such as programming, fundraising, membership development, marketing, communications, and financial planning.
  • Company Support. Flexibility to participate in chapter meetings and local events are ideal. Nominees who have access to industry leaders can only help the chapter build a strong constituency.
