CLUB Leadership Drive

11/11/2015 6:05 PM | Anonymous

You joined us to accelerate your leadership journey and help other women on their paths.  Now you have the opportunity to join the ranks of The CLUB’s leadership team and/or committees and further your development and the CLUB’s mission!  We are launching our 2016 leadership and committee participation drive to find the next leaders and supporters for the CLUB.

Over the past 3 years, the programming and reach of the CLUB has expanded significantly as more and more CLUB members have taken on formal and informal leadership roles. For 2016 we are further expanding our leadership structure and roles to best support our continued growth. Our leadership in 2016 will be comprised of the following roles:

  • Board of Directors– We are seeking a few strategic thinkers who can further the CLUB’s reach and also roll up their sleeves to provide leadership and oversight for critical CLUB initiatives.
    Time commitment: 10 to 20 hours per month. 3 year term (minimum).


  • Managing Directors / Operating Committee– A Managing Director will be responsible for the leadership and performance of each CLUB committee. Formerly, we’ve called these roles Committee Chairs. A newly formed Operating Committee will be comprised of these Managing Directors to facilitate coordination and synergies between committees. This leadership body will meet once per quarter as an operating committee and once per quarter with the Board of Directors in addition to any committee leadership meetings.
    Time commitment: 6 to 10 hours per month.


  • Committee Directors– Committee Directors will lead key initiatives and programs within each Committee and will report into the committee’s Managing Director.
    Time commitment: 4 to 8 hours per month.


  • Community Leaders– help organize quarterly informal events for a subset of the CLUB community (e.g. industry, geography, and experience level groups).
    Time commitment: 2 to 3 hours per month.

We are currently seeking applicants at each of these leadership levels. If a leadership position within the CLUB is not right for you at this time, we strongly encourage you to join one of our committees.

To apply to leadership positions or to choose a committee to join in 2016, please fill out this brief survey by Monday, November 30th.

As a CLUB leader, you will be given the opportunity to lead or co-lead teams, with guidance and feedback from other CLUB leaders and/or the Board. You’ll also get to know more CLUB members and deepen the connections you have already made. Please note that some committee leadership positions have already been filled. We will contact applicants for leadership positions to set up interviews later this year.  Please be sure that your members-only site profile is up to date so we can use that for reference as we evaluate candidates.

We look forward to an exciting and inspiring 2016!
