Now Taking Applications for Open Student Seat on APPAM's Policy Council
December 11, 2014 09:02 AM
As part of the approved changes to APPAM's Policy Council from 2013, two student seats were created to better include the student voice in APPAM's governing body. Each seat is a two-year staggered term. One student will be appointed annually by a committee co-chaired by the APPAM President, Jane Waldfogel, and the Chair of Institutional Representatives, Michael Shires. Sarah Cordes was appointed in 2014 and is halfway through her term as student representative.
Students who are interested in the next open seat, which will serve on the APPAM Policy Council through 2017, need to contact their Institutional Member representative as soon as possible, who will supply a letter of recommendation and your CV to APPAM's Executive Director, Tara Sheehan. Nominations are due by December 31, 2014.
If you are interested, please note:
You need to be a current member in good standing of APPAM.
You must be a student at the time of appointment but not necessarily throughout their entire 2 year term.
You will be a full voting member of the Policy Council upon appointment.
Travel costs and lodging for all Policy Council meetings are taken care of by APPAM.
Only current institutional members are able to nominate students.
The appointee will be chosen by mid-January and will be announced in conjunction with the rest of the Policy Council election results. For more details, please refer to the Association bylaws.
