2018-2019 Committee Elections

Postby admin » July 17th, 2018, 8:24 am

Like last year, the committee slots are being divided into individual roles to help better organize the FBA. Each of the three community-elected Committee members will have various roles that they are responsible for, which will help shape the direction of the FBA’s future.

A brief review of the roles is below, along with the type of people we think should consider the role. Please note that some of the descriptions for these roles may have changed since last year. As a reminder, the three committee roles will still help to shape FBA canon, but will no longer be responsible for the disciplinary portion of FBA Administration. The committee member also does not have to do all that is listed in their job description by themselves, but rather, is the point person responsible for those action items. Other volunteers can and are expected to help out where needed.

You may only apply to two committee roles.

Please consider which roles you think that you are best suited for before you apply. You must fill out a separate application for each role you are running for.
