PILA is now accepting applications for the 2016–17 Board! The application is attached.
Why should I join the PILA Board?
-The work I've had a chance to do over the last two years, first as an auction director and this year as president, has been some of the most rewarding and meaningful of my three years here. The PILA Board gives you a unique chance to impact both individual student experiences and policy for the entire school.
-The people you meet—other Board members, grantees, community partners, and faculty—are inspiring, dedicated public servants. Learning from them and their stories is a tremendous opportunity.
-It's a lot of fun! We throw the biggest party of the fall semester and it's a great way to expand your network of friends during your last two years here.
-Added bonus: if you're a PILA grantee it substitutes for your 20 hour obligation to PILA. But note that you do not have to be a grantee to join the Board!
What does the application consist of?
1) A written portion, consisting of (a) your resume without GPA data and (b) a 1–3 page Word doc answering the questions posed in the attached application. These must be submitted to me at this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5 pm on Thursday, March 17.
2) An interview lasting approximately 10 minutes, to take place on Monday, March 21.
What's the timeline?
Written Application Due: Thursday, March 17, 5 pm
Interview: Monday, March 21
Decisions: Announced by Friday, March 25
The newly elected Board should plan to meet at least once or twice in April.
