Serving as a SWUSY Regional General Board member is an extremely rewarding experience. Regional General Board allows SWUSYites to have an impact on USYers throughout the region, through numerous different opportunities.
The SWUSY Regional General Board (RGB) is made up of a group dedicated and passionate USYers, each one in charge of a different aspect of USY in SWUSY. As a member of the RGB you will have the responsibility of working with your Regional Board counterpart throughout the year on projects that you initiate as well as those delegated to you by your overseeing officer. It is because of the RGB that SWUSY will be able to provide incredible programming throughout the year. If you are looking to improve SWUSY, becoming an RGB member is an effective way of doing so.
If you are chosen to be on the RGB, you will be a part of a very important team. You will be responsible for completing the tasks assigned to your position. You will also be responsible for coming to both regional and chapter events and representing SWUSY. Each General Board Member is required to attend Leadership Training Institute, LTI, (August 16-19, 2018), and required to attend least one of Spring Kallah and Fall Kallah. If you are unsure about attending these events, but are interested in being part of the RGB, please contact Jacki (firstname.lastname@example.org). Most importantly, you will be expected to be a Dugmah, positive role model, for fellow USYers.
While decisions will not be made until immediately before LTI, all applicants who apply for RGB will receive a position and therefore are expected to attend LTI. Please make sure that you only choose positions that you are interested in holding. In addition, the Regional Executive Board (REB), may choose to offer you a position other than those listed or that you have applied for.
If you are applying to be a convention chairperson (Fall Kallah, Spring Kallah, Regional Convention, Kadima Koordinator), in addition to this application, you must write and submit a program that could be used at this convention. Feel free to use any program format used in your chapter or reach out to Jacki for a program template that can be used. This program is also due by the deadline (Sunday, August 5, 2017 @ midnight CST), and must be sent to Jacki (email@example.com) and Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All RGB applications are due Sunday, August 5, 2017 by midnight Central Time. This deadline will be strictly enforced, and any application received after the deadline may not be considered. The Board will be meeting shortly afterward and must be able to review the applications.
