The Association for Women in Sports Media has three open board positions to fill, with terms beginning at our annual convention, July 28-31 in Miami.
The three open positions, which will be voted on by our membership via online ballot in June, are:
- Vice President/Fundraising
- Vice President/Digital
The position of President is a two-year term, and candidates must be a current or former AWSM board member. The two Vice President positions are considered year to year and do not have term limits, and previous board experience, while helpful, is not required. All candidates must be a current AWSM member.
Some of the responsibilities of the President include, but are not limited to, overseeing the function of the rest of the board and managing the activities of the organization, including its finances. The President helps ensure that regular meetings are held, issues addressed and in short, that the organization runs smoothly.
The position of Vice President/Digital includes the responsibility of managing the website, social media content and our newsletters and email blasts. The Vice President/Fundraising coordinates and oversees fund-raising efforts for AWSM’s various programs, including the convention.
Please note that requirements of all board positions can vary from year to year, depending on the make-up of the board and the group’s priorities, so an ability to work as a team, strong communication and organization skills, and a willingness to take initiative are important qualities for any position.
If you have interest in or questions about any of these positions, please send an email to email@example.com by June 1, 2016.
We likely will also have coordinator positions open soon, so if you have any interest in any other area of AWSM, please let any board member know.
