Setting up and running a TIAMSA Sub-Committee
What is a TIAMSA Sub-Committee?
TIAMSA sub-committees will typically consist of a group of TIAMSA members who are either based near each other (regional sub-committee) or who would like to collaborate on a particular subject (thematic sub-committee).
What does a TIAMSA Sub-Committee do?
There are many possible activities that Sub-Committees can engage in:
The Board suggests an initial informal meeting of those who are interested to discuss your possible activities, events and options (including presence via Skype, etc.).
Getting in touch
If you plan to set up a Sub-Committee, please write to the TIAMSA Board at firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the purpose and scope of your sub-committee and a brief outline of planned activities.
Rules for running a Sub-Committee
“The International Art Market Studies Association (TIAMSA) is a non-profit scholarly association that supports the study of art markets of all periods and geographic areas. In particular, it provides a platform for networking, organizes conferences, seminars and gatherings, distributes information by website, mailing list or printed matter, and advocates for the academic and general recognition of art market studies.“
Should Sub-Committees have a constitution and keep a members list?
Sub-Committees are subject to the TIAMSA constitution and therefore do not need a separate one. However, the TIAMSA Board suggests that Sub-Committees define their scope in writing and that they keep a list of members. Sub-Committees will be headed typically by one or two chairs. In case of several contenders, chairs must be elected in a fair process by the Sub-Committee’s members.
How will TIAMSA help me in setting up a Sub-Committee?
The TIAMSA Board will be very happy to support your networking and circulate calls for members to join your sub-committee. When appropriate, we will allocate space for sub-committees on our website. Sub-Committees may also advertise their activities at the TIAMSA conference in appropriate form (flyer, poster, etc.). While we are currently unable to provide funds for sub-committees but financial support for special projects may become available in the future.
