Application Deadline: Serve on NESEA's Board

Event Date: 

Wednesday, June 7, 2023 to Friday, July 21, 2023


Deadline: Friday, July 21, 2023

The NESEA Board of Directors is composed of 13 members dedicated to serving NESEA's mission and vision. These individuals come from a variety of professional and personal backgrounds, and they collectively represent the interests and needs of our extended community. They help shape the organization through establishing the strategic plan, committee work, collaboration with staff, by acting as ambassadors, and by guiding NESEA programs and work as needed. 

Each year, the NESEA Membership elects individuals to serve three year terms on the board (note: terms are staggered so only a portion of board seats open annually).

If you are interested in being considered as a candidate, you can complete the application here (you must log in to view the form). Prior to applying, we recommend reviewing the Board Member job description to learn about the responsibilities and expectations of board service.

The deadline to apply is July 21. Current members of the Board’s Nominating Committee will review and vet applications to develop a slate of candidates for the ballot. The NESEA Membership will be invited to cast their votes this fall, and the new Board term will start on January 1, 2024.

We encourage applications from individuals who identify as women, people of color, or LGBTQ+, and other groups traditionally underrepresented in our industry.

Although most board work is done remotely, there are some required in-person meetings. We recognize that serving on a Board of Directors and attending meetings may be prohibitively expensive and have made funds available to support Board Members for whom participation would be a financial hardship.
