Apply for the Mizzou Women in Media Exec Board!
Now that we’re all refreshed and energized after break (hopefully), it’s time to face the reality: the semester is nearing its end. And with the end of Spring semester comes the end of Mizzou Women in Media’s first full academic year as a student organization! It’s been an exciting year. We’ve been so honored to get to know so many incredible fellow students and women media professionals.
But this begs the question: What’s next for us?
The answer is you. Yes, you.
It’s time to elect a new Mizzou Women in Media executive board, and so if you want to get more involved in the organization, here is your chance!
If you’d like to run for an executive board position, all you need to do is fill out this application form. The form will ask you a few questions that will make up your platform, such as “What ideas do you have for improving Mizzou WIM?” and “Why do you want to be a Mizzou WIM executive member?” Students who vote online will see your answers to the application questions in order to inform their decision on how to vote.
All applications need to be recieved by Friday April 22 at 5 p.m. in order to be considered for a position.
Elections will be held online starting April 25 to 29. Only MU students can vote.
To give you a better idea of what each position entails, our current executive board gave a little description about what they do.
As President I am at the helm of organizing meetings, speaking behalf of the organization at events, and generating new ideas for campaigns and programs. However, for Mizzou Women in Media, collaboration is key. My job consists mostly of working with my fellow officers to make all the things we do possible. — Beatriz
As the vice president, my main tasks have been running the website and helping coordinate events. I built the Mizzou WIM site in WordPress, so whoever takes it over has a user-friendly setup to work with. I also handle the email list through MailChimp (aka MailKimp). And when we’ve got events coming up, I help recruit speakers and acquire the materials needed for events. — Madi
We’re a cashless club, which makes my job a little bit easier. My one big responsibility is submitting budget requests to ORG when we need money for something. Other than that, I mostly support the other officers, sending emails, posting to social media, writing blog posts and helping manage campaigns and events. — Katy
I get to work with great women to build a stronger sense of community. I coordinated a True/False event raffling tickets to see films by women directors. I also keep track of what we do from week to week, and help plan our monthly events. — Daniela
As the Director of outreach for Mizzou WIM, I assist with getting the word out about our monthly events, and help manage social media accounts. I also spearhead the WIM mentorship program by matching women to other women with similar professional and personal interests, and keeping the program active throughout the year. — Alli
