The Student Union presents a call for nominations (including self-nominations) for the Executive Committee positions of Chair and Member-At-Large


The deadline for nominations will be Friday, September 19, 2018. Please submit the name, institutional affiliation, and email address of your nominee to studentunionnominations.sem@gmail.com (subject line: SU Nominations 2018). Special note: if you are interested in participating in a leadership role within the SU, you can also self-nominate for these positions. A brief description of the leadership positions can be found below.

SU-Officer Position, Chair (Jeremy Reed):

As chair of the Student Union, I preside over the business and operation of the SU at the SEM Annual Meeting and beyond. This entails facilitating monthly planning meetings (via Google Hangout) with the SU Executive Committee in preparation for the SEM Meeting, each approximately 1-hour long; delegating leaders to oversee the various objectives and initiatives of the SU, including community outreach, network and communication, and SU-sponsored panels for SEM; and finally, submitting an annual sectional report to the SEM Board regarding the activities and financial standing of the SU over the course of the year. This leadership position is a wonderful networking opportunity, while also providing a platform for developing student-focused programming and advocating for student concerns within SEM.

SU-Officer Position, Member-at-Large (Shumaila Hemani):

This position is fundamentally one of support and communication for both the Student Union Executive Committee and the SEM student populous in general. The primary task of the Member-at-Large is to develop and maintain networking communication with SEM regional chapter student representatives, executive officers of regional graduate ethnomusicology associations, SEM Council student representatives, and SEM Special Interest Groups (SIGS) Sections and Committees. Additionally, the Member-at-Large is responsible for delegated tasks from various members of the Student Union Executive Committee.


More information about these positions and eligibility for them can be found in sections V and VI of the SU By-Laws, accessible here:http://tinyurl.com/ktk3xpy. Lastly, if you have questions about the SU or individual positions, please email studentunion.sem@gmail.com.
