'20-'21 STAND Managing Committee Application
*Deadline Extended*: This application will close at midnight ET on Sunday, April 5, 2020.
Selected applicants will be invited to a phone interview in April. Interviewees who are not selected for the MC may be considered for other positions, such as State Advocacy Lead.
The Managing Committee (MC) is comprised of STAND’s highest level activists, who oversee the Action Committees, develop national campaigns and programming, and run our outreach efforts. The MC is responsible for looking out for STAND’s long-term future, and making sure we’re effectively working towards our mission to end and prevent genocide and mass atrocities.
We know MC members vary in skills and interests. Therefore, we encourage you to highlight in your application your leadership experiences, your skills and talents, and any issues we work on that you feel called to contribute to. Some MC members will be facilitating Action Committees and others will be working with the Student Director and Staff to develop communications, partner relationships, and educational materials. In either type of role, as an MC member, you will be responsible for communicating daily with other MC and Action Committee members via Slack (our team communication platform), attending weekly conference calls, regular Action Committee calls, and creating educational and campaign materials, according to committee needs.
