We are looking for five US-based Board Members to volunteer their time to fill the following five positions. You may apply to more than one position.
All Board members should be well-organized, detail-oriented, and communicative. One of SwingDiversity’s core values is integrity, and we expect to observe this value in our Board members. Currently, we expect to meet once (1x) at the beginning of each quarter for 2 hours per meeting.
Each Board Member will be the “sponsor” of the initiatives or projects that fall under its jurisdiction. Each initiative will have a point person and the Board Member will be responsible for facilitating those initiatives by working with the point person(s).
A Board member can also be a point person for an initiative. For example, Jane could be the point person for the annual scholarship initiative and also the Representation Board Member that oversees that area.
