If problems arise, this person is to contact the Examinee and the BOE and see to it that either the needed variances are acquired or the materials are returned to HQ.
  • This person will be responsible for reconditioning any reusable materials so that they are in a ready condition, as they were originally, for the next assessment. Used up and unusable materials are to be set aside for the Examinee or discarded depending on the material.

Dir.; develop and submit advertising for classes for clockmakers to the HT (including securing advertising support, as appropriate, from supporting patrons of AWCI); develop budgets for the courses in conjunction with the Ex.

  • The pay rate in the beginning will start at $25.00 per hour plus travel and expenses as appropriate. As time (yearly) and activities increase, pay reviews will be done to determine increases. This person will supply the Ex. Dir with an “expense reimbursement” document, notating the total number of hours spent directly on clock programs and accessory expenses (along with documentation) every month or when 80 to 120 hours of work have been completed. It is expected at the beginning that this person will be spending the bulk of his initial time developing his knowledge and skills to learn the existing clock assessment and other programs. It is predicted that about 250 to 400 hours will be spent in the first year with their efforts on these programs. From there, the work rate will drop to whatever the membership requirements generate.
