SMCLA 2017 Nominations Now Open

SMCLA Elections 2016 2017Every good group is run by great leadership. Social Media Club LA is no different and this is why we have an election process to set the Club’s leadership for the upcoming year.

We are looking forward to working with returning and new board members who bring enthusiasm, teamwork and a fresh perspective to serving the Los Angeles chapter!

Submit a nomination

November marks the start of this process and we highly encourage anyone interested in participating in SMCLA to please nominate themselves by clicking the button above or here. Please indicate your name, age, and rank… no, that’s not right in this situation. Just fill out the form… it’s quick, easy, and relatively painless.

These are some examples of areas of interest, aka “Committees” that you can be involved with and help guide in 2017:

  • Communications
  • Programs
  • Sponsorship
  • Membership

And, there are roles such as:

  • President
  • Director of Operations
  • Director of Finance
  • Creative Director

You can review the roles here: http://bit.ly/2eGP6Oq. They are also outlined in the nomination form in case you need any last minute reminders!

And, a few commonly asked questions:

Who can apply for nomination?

Any community member in good standing may apply. While we prefer that the candidate is currently registered as a paid member of Social Media Club (socialmediaclub.org/membership), it is not a requirement for a nominee for the 2016 board, as long as that person joins after their election.

It is also strongly preferred that you have attended one or more SMCLA events. If you have not, but are still interested in serving on the board, please consider volunteering to help with an event soon. Committee work is excellent preparation for board membership.

What are team Directors?

Each board committee has a team lead, or Director, who helps ensure each committee runs smoothly and acts as leader. FYI, the other committee members are called Associate Directors.

How long is the service term?

Officers will be elected on an annual basis and will serve a one-year term.

How much time commitment is required?

SMCLA has a working board, and all Directors and Associate Directors are expected to donate their time to support chapter activities. Our goal is to conduct weekly or bi-weekly board meetings via phone, and require assistance by all team members to support each chapter event — we host a combination of educational and networking programs throughout the year. There are typically quarterly in-person Board meetings but that is at the discretion of the President.

Can I nominate myself?

Yes! Please do! You can actually do that right here.

How will the board be selected?

A nominating committee will distribute a slate of candidates in the form of a ballot to all chapter members in late November. Ballots must be returned to the committee two weeks later.

How do I get started?

We encourage you to become more involved in the chapter and share your ideas with your board. The first step is to nominate yourself, a friend or colleague and/or another chapter member to serve on the board for the 2016 year!

Any other questions?

Please address them to our Chapter President, AJ Feuerman, at socialmediaclubla@gmail.com.

We look forward to your participation in making the SMCLA chapter stronger and more vibrant by serving our membership with topical programs, networking and events, as well as expanding our network of resources for discussion on all things social media marketing and digital-related!

Thank you from the Social Media CLub Los Angeles Board of Directors!
