Junior Council Elections

This is Shannon Lin and Jenny Mao, the Co-Presidents of the Junior Council.

It is time for our 2017 Junior Council elections! We encourage all junior home club members to apply. You will have the opportunity to make friends, plan fun events, give back to our community, get leadership and project planning experience, and make the Skating Club of San Francisco even more wonderful than it already is!

All positions are up for reelection, and we have added some new ones this year.

Positions on the board:

Co-President (Requires at least one year of previous experience on the Junior Council)

Co-Presidents oversee the entire council’s activity. They lead meetings, plan the direction and events of the council, and communicate with the adult SCSF board in bi-monthly meetings.

Vice President (Requires at least one year of previous experience on the Junior Council)

The Vice President works with the Co-Presidents to plan events. They communicate with and manage all the other members of the council. The Vice President assumes the role of the Co-President should either President be absent or step down before the next election cycle.

The secretary documents meetings and provides an emailed copy of every meeting to all members of the junior council including supervisors. They work with the Director of Public Relations to write emails to club members + community.

The treasurer creates the council’s budget. They also manage sales and finance during fundraising events.

Other Officer Positions:

Head of Volunteering (new!)
The head of volunteering plans and executes community service activities + volunteering events. They keep track of each member’s service hours and create volunteer schedules/shifts for events.

Director of Public Relations (new!) 
The Director of Public Relations publicizes events to the club + outward community through flyers, posters, and emails. They also manage the social media of the junior council.

Project Manager (new!) 
The project manager works with the co-presidents and vice president to decide events and activities. They make sure every project has a timeline and that every deadline is met or adjusted if needed. The project manager also gives each person a role in a project.

Council Member
Council members create, plan, and help at programs and events.
If you are applying as a council member, you can skip #3 on the application, and your application will not be voted on by the club. Instead, it will be evaluated by the newly elected Co-Presidents based on qualifications with assistance from the adult board.

The Application-

Write a brief bio about yourself. (3-4 sentences)
What position are you applying for?
What ideas do you hope to implement?
How will you contribute positively to both the council and club? (4-6 sentences)
What is your favorite skating move? 😀

Please email your applications to our club president Dr. Jessica Gaynor at Drjess49@gmail.com and our club secretary Dr. Ted Gradman at tjgradman@yahoo.com.

All applications will be due on Wednesday, October 25. The applications will then be sent out to the club for all junior members to vote on from October 28 to November 4. More details about voting will be available later on. All applicants will be eligible for selection as a Council member.
