Membership communication: Quarterly newsletter curation using Mailchimp
Leadership tasks: NAFSA MIG Annual Report, Attending NAFSA MIG Leader Quarterly Meetings, Joining Co-Chair Planning Meetings
Conference duties*: We hold in-person open meetings at the NAFSA Annual Conference and try to also hold open meetings at a few Regional Conferences when possible. There is also typically a NAFSA MIG meeting at the NAFSA Annual Conference.
*Attending the NAFSA Annual Conference is a preferred requirement. We understand it is not always possible to attend the conference for a variety of reasons. Part of having a large leadership team, is that we typically have no problem having representation at the Annual Conference.
Please note that NAFSA requires there to be at least one NAFSA member on the MIG leadership team at all times.
If all this sounds good to you, please continue on to the short application below. Apply by December 18, 2022.
