Description of Purpose
The LTAB Board Member is a one-year ex officio board member position, designed to be filled by a current LTAB student who will represent student concerns to the Nebraska Writers Collective’s board of directors. This person will be a full-fledged member of the board of directors, and will have the chance to actively and directly influence the action of the Nebraska Writers Collective.
This is a volunteer position, and runs from July 1 of the current year to June 30 of next year.
What You’ll Do
- Attend board meetings, vote, and participate in decision-making
- Represent the LTAB student body to make sure their interests are well-represented
- Learn about (and do!) organizational management, program development and evaluation, fundraising, and financial management
- Attend workshops and seminars
- Work with a fantastic group of folks who are super-interested in making sure that LTAB and other Nebraska Writers Collective programs are as high-quality as they can possibly be
Requirements For Applying
If you are interested in applying, contact Andrew Ek at email@example.com.
You’ll submit all of your materials to Andrew by May 30. From there, the board of directors will select one or more candidates to fill this role.
Here’s the list of requirements and a description of how to apply:
- You must have at least one year of experience participating in Louder Than a Bomb: Omaha, and you must be enrolled in high school for the coming school year.
- Submit a letter of application (1-2 pages) in which you outline your involvement with LTAB, your reasons for applying to be the LTAB board member, what you hope to accomplish by joining the board, and why you think you’ll be a successful board member. Please also indicate what year you are in school.
- Be able to commit to attending board meetings every six weeks (we meet about nine times per year)
- Find two references who can speak to your credibility. These shouldn’t be family members. One person should probably be your LTAB coach or the teacher who coordinates LTAB at your school. You don’t need to ask for letters of recommendation, but you should attach a separate document with contact information, as well as a quick explanation of how they know you.
