SAJA Board Elections
With November around the corner, 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!
Four SAJA board member positions will be open for the two year term of 2012 & 2013. These spots will be filled through these elections later this fall. 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 journalism, PR, law, accounting or marketing can make valuable contributions to SAJA's board. We would like members based outside New York City to contest as well.
Only full members, not associate members, of SAJA are eligible to contest for the board member slots.
ALL CANDIDATES WILL NEED TO SUBMIT A 300-WORD PITCH THAT WILL BE MADE PUBLIC AND AVAILABLE TO ALL SAJA MEMBERS. THE PITCHES HAVE TO BE SUBMITTED TO SAJA BOARD MEMBER RAAKHEE MIRCHANDANI BY NOV. 3. Raakhee.firstname.lastname@example.org
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 applicationsfor awards/scholarships.
PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME, CURRENT SNAIL MAIL AND E-MAIL ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER.
If you have any questions about running or serving on the board, you can reach out to SAJA President Jigar Mehta at President@Saja.org
