BECOMING AN AMPIA BOARD MEMBER

All AMPIA members in good standing are eligible to run for election to the AMPIA Board. As Canada’s oldest media industry association, AMPIA is dependent on its highly skilled volunteer Board members to provide leadership, direction and mentorship to Alberta’s next generation of film and television content creators, while elevating the skill level of the membership. The term limit for an AMPIA board member is 4 consecutive 2 year terms (8 years) at which time the board member must step down, but is eligible to run for election again following a one year hiatus. Each member is required to act as a Chair or Co-Chair on one of AMPIA’s many committees.

All members are encouraged to run for election by undertaking a few simple steps:
