We are looking for a few good men and women to join the SMCLA Board for 2015.

The time has come for board nominations, beginning November 1!

The goal of the Social Media Club Los Angeles (SMCLA) chapter is to serve our members and community through social media literacy and education, career advancement and peer networking, as well as recognizing and supporting the objectives of Social Media Club.

We look forward to finding and working with Board members who bring enthusiasm, teamwork and a fresh perspective to serving the Los Angeles chapter.

In order to facilitate a smooth election process, the following are the most commonly asked questions about becoming a SMCLA board member.

Who can apply for nomination?
Any social media community member in good standing may apply.  While we prefer that the candidate is current in registration and dues with Social Media Club (join here), it is not a requirement for the 2015 board.

It is also 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 joining our promotions committee.

What are team leads?
Each committee will have a team lead who will help ensure each committee runs smoothly and to act as leader of each committee.

How long is the service term?
Officers will be elected on an annual basis and will serve a one-year term.

What are the duties and responsibilities of Chapter Officers?
Descriptions available soon.

How much time commitment is required?
We ask that you make a commitment to the Board and the chapter.  Our goal is to conduct bi-weekly board meetings via phone, and require assistance by all team members to support each local event. The time varies depending on the role but would be a minimum of 7-10 hours per month. We also plan to host a combination of educational and networking programs throughout the year.  However, we have structured to board to ensure strong support for each committee.

Can I nominate myself?
Yes! Please do!

How will the Board be selected?
The nominating committee will distribute a slate of candidates in the form of a ballot to all chapter members by the November 20. Ballots must be returned to the committee ten days 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 or another chapter member to serve on the Board for the 2015 year.

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