Executive Board

The Executive Board is a group of dedicated, passionate members who are elected by the membership to oversee the business of the entire organization.

If you’re interested in helping to shape the field, and create new opportunities for yourself, and your fellow colleagues to learn and connect, consider getting involved with the Executive Board.

You’re Welcome to Attend a Board Meeting

Members are encouraged to join the Executive Board for a meeting. It’s a great way to get a sense of how the board works. UMTIA is your association and we need to hear from you to know what direction to take.

The Executive Board generally meets the second Thursday of each month from 6 – 8 pm at the Wilder Foundation building in St. Paul where parking is free.  Send us an email at to let us know you’re coming, as we occasionally forgo the Thursday meetings in lieu of a longer weekend meeting.  We look forward to seeing you.

Have an Issue or Question You’d like the Board to Consider?

Have an idea, question or issue you’d like the leadership team at UMTIA to consider? We want to hear from you. Please send us  a message at

To be included in the next board meeting, messages must be submitted to us by noon on Tuesday prior to the meeting. Anything not sent in by this deadline will be addressed at the next meeting.
