The Harvardwood Board of Directors is coming up on elections for its next term, and we are looking for some energetic individuals to fill a few great positions! The Harvardwood BOD is the managing body that oversees the volunteer efforts of Harvardwood members worldwide and has worked to create an impressive array of events, programs, and online resources over the past fifteen years. As a member of this dynamic team, you will play a large role in determining the priorities and setting the course for the entire organization.
Below is a list of Board positions we are looking to fill. Each Harvardwood Board member holds office for a period of two years, until his or her successor is elected and qualifies. Board members should have a strong interest in fostering career education and networking among Harvard University alumni and students, and candidates have either completed a degree program at Harvard University or have a strong enough affiliation to Harvard as determined by a majority of the existing directors. Board members must be of the age of majority in CA and should be able to attend quarterly board meetings in the Los Angeles area (Board members in other locations can participate via conference call, but please note that for some positions, a presence in LA is preferred).
To be considered, please submit your resume and a brief statement of qualification (1 or 2 paragraphs) to [email protected] by January 15, 2016. Please be sure to write your statement in the body of your email, not as a separate attachment. Thank you!
