Composition & Qualifications
Trustees serve two-year terms with no term limits. Terms start January 1 and end December 31.
Beginning in year three, Trustees will be self-nominated and selected by the TDM-CP cohort. All Trustees must sign, as a condition of their appointment, a Confidentiality Agreement and any other such document for the protection and security of the TDM-CP program. The CBOT is composed of at least eight (8) individuals representing the TDM industry, including at least one representative from each of the following:
Meetings of Board of Trustees are held at a minimum once per year in-person, with additional in-person/conference/video meetings scheduled as determined necessary by the CBOT. The in-person meeting is held in conjunction with the ACT International Conference whenever possible. This meeting serves as the CBOT’s Annual Meeting.
Duties of the Board of Trustees
The CBOT develops and recommends all key certification policies and procedures of the TDM-CP Program, which includes establishing and maintaining eligibility standards and all aspects of exams, including developing, administering, scoring, and overseeing the program’s operation.
Unless otherwise determined by the CBOT Chair, each standing committee shall consist of not less than 3 or more than 10 members. The CBOT Chair shall from time to time appoint members to such a standing committee as deemed necessary or advisable by the CBOT to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the CBOT. Appointments to a standing committee do not need to be current Trustees; however, as a condition of their appointment, a member must be a member in good standing with ACT, have obtained current TDM-CP certification, and be willing to sign a Confidentiality Agreement and any other such documents necessary for the protection and security of the TDM-CP program.
The Exam Subcommittee is responsible for establishing an exam that is reliable, valid, and in compliance with the policies and procedures established for the committee, as approved by the Trustees.
