WIM Board Seeks Nominations

The Board of Women in Management is seeking nominations for board positions that are open for the upcoming cycle. Like the Membership cycle, Board Members serve for one year (coinciding with the University’s fiscal year), after being slated and voted on by all Members in good standing. Upcoming terms will begin immediately after voting (which, this year, will be after the beginning of the fiscal year).

Self nominations are welcome and encouraged!

Time expectations for each position vary from 1-3 hours per month depending on event schedules. In addition, all Board Members are expected to attend a 60-minute, monthly Board meeting. NOTE: Individuals will be expected to join or renew their WIM Membership ahead of the slate being presented to Membership for voting.

  • Membership Co-Chair (HSC): works with UPC Membership Chair to create, monitor and manage membership development, including membership roster within the WIM Website (with guidance from the WIM Webmaster). Organizes and hosts membership events and mixers for current members and to recruit new ones.
  • Professional Development Co-Chair (UPC): organizes/produces at least one PD event during the year with the focus on tangible skills that help attendees grow and succeed in their work. May collaborate with HSC PD Chair.
  • Public Relations – flyers: using established templates, creates flyers for WIM events and programs for use on the WIM website and in the newsletter and on social media. Ideal candidate has interest and experience with graphic design or layout.
  • Speaker Series Co-Chair (HSC): organizes/produces at least one event for the year, highlighting a leader or leaders from areas of interest to our members and guests.

ATTENTION ALL HSC WIM: I need your help

10-11:30am, Thursday, August 27, 2015

This is the updated, real, and one true time for the Career Advancement Strategies session on HSC, and corrects what was published in error in the print version of the HSC News.

And here’s the part I need your help on. If y’all at HSC, could please print out this pdf flyer notice, and post it in your area(s), it might keep some folks from showing up an hour early. We’ll send a reminder note to all the people who RSVP-ed, but a visual reminder is always helpful.

Same place, same day, just a different time from what’s in the HSC News:
Thursday, August 27
10-11:30 am

Help me, Obi Wan HSC WIM, you’re my only hope.

Thanks a million!
