I hope you all are having lovely and successful summers! In preparation for a BIG year for QueerWes next year, WE’RE GONNA HAVE ELECTIONS. We’re going to expand leadership so the work is divided up, more focused, and more people can be involved in the group’s decisions. EVERYONE is welcome to apply (freshmen, you too!).
Here are the positions and responsibilities I was thinking of*:
-Leads/plans group meetings/hang-outs
-act as leader in making decisions for QueerWes
-act as a resource for anyone concerned with all that is queer at Wes
Champion of Events
-Keep calendar of queer events across campus
-Work with Queer Organizing Committee as needed
-Act as contact for anyone on campus wanting Queerwes to be involved in their event
-Be at events and handle logistics
-Manage smartkey and SBC requests
-Go to SBC meetings when funding needs to be requested
-Put in SALD funding requests when needed
-Manage all things QueerWes blog related
-recruit people to post on blog
-Make flyers/posters for events
-Potentially design or field designs for t-shirts
-Design queerwes logo
Queer Retreat Coordinator
-Be involved in any and all things relating to queer retreat
Queer Prom Coordinator
-Be involved in any and all things relating to queer prom
(not up for election, it’s the wonderful KATY THOMPSON. She’s just super involved and should be mentioned)
*all position names can be happily changed. these are little too resume-esque.
SO, IF YOU’D LIKE TO APPLY, EMAIL ME (email@example.com) WITH THESE THINGS BY JULY 13TH):
-Position(s) you’re interested in
-Leadership positions you’ve held previously
-Why are you interested?
-What effect do you hope to have on queer life at Wes?
-Can you commit to this position all year? (Are you going abroad, etc.? It won’t factor into decision– just so we know!)
any positions receiving more than one application will be up for a vote!
It may sound intense to become involved but it’s really not. It’s a lot of fun AND doesn’t require anything more than hanging out with a bunch of cool queer kids.
All the best my loves– get at me!
