The SAJA board would like to announce and invite any SAJA full member who wants to run for this year's SAJA board elections. Our organization has more than 750 paid members and we are continuing to grow as we speak!
Seven SAJA board member positions are open for the two year term of 2013 & 2014. In December, these spots will be filled through our elections.
Only full members, not associate members, of SAJA are eligible to contest for the board member slots.
Those who have a strong interest in journalism and coverage of South Asia(n) issues are urged to consider running for the election.
People involved in public relations, law, accounting or marketing can make valuable contributions to SAJA's board as well. We would like members based outside of New York City to contest as well.
Important requirements for serving on the board are a spirit of teamwork, leadership and the commitment of at least a few hours each week, on activities ranging from organizing events to judging applications for awards/scholarships.
ALL CANDIDATES WILL NEED TO SUBMIT A 300-WORD PITCH THAT WILL BE MADE PUBLIC AND AVAILABLE TO ALL SAJA MEMBERS. THESE PITCHES HAVE TO BE SUBMITTED TO SAJA VICE PRESIDENT SOVY AZHATH BY THURSDAY NOV. 15th. E-MAIL TO : firstname.lastname@example.org
