Q:  Are AWMA board members compensated from the AWMA treasury?

A:  This is an entirely volunteer organization and compensation (other than reimbursement) is prohibited by our by-laws. We have no paid staff. There is reimbursement for someone to serve as the delegate for the AWDF meeting limited to $750 (receipts required)as per our policies and procedures, and we do provide resources for our Director of Judges to periodically attend the FCI meeting. Your President and other board members are not compensated or reimbursed to attend the AWMA annual meeting held in conjunction with our IPO championship.
