Leadership Opportunities at Hillel
At Hillel, students are given the opportunity to craft their own events and initiative and to make their own decisions. Student leaders work to provide opportunities to the broadest range of people, including to those students who may not necessarily be familiar with the organization and the wide range of activities it has to offer them. The student leaders of Hillel pride themselves on providing programs on a religious, social, educational and cultural basis. There are many different type of leadership positions you can fill - in fact they are literally endless. Any student can create an event they want to run, an initiative they want to organize or a change they want to make and do it, with the resources and help provided by Hillel.
If you are interested in a Hillel Leadership Position for next year on the Executive Board or Hillel Assembly, it is mandatory for you to attend one of two GIMs being held in the Hillel Lounge UUW-301. If you cannot attend either meeting for whatever reason, please email Yael David at firstname.lastname@example.org
The positions that will be voted upon are President, Executive Vice President, Vice President of Public Relations, and Vice President of Finance. To be eligible for the position of President, you must be a member of the current E-board, or a head of one of the committees within Hillel. To be eligible for a Vice President position, you must be on the current E-board or a Hillel Leadership Team or Committee.
If you are interested in running for one of these, please email a formal letter of intent to email@example.com by February 28th. Elections for these four (4) positions will be held either on March 14th and 15th in the Hillel Office UUW-208B or at the Hillel Table in the Marketplace or Tillman Lobby.
If you are interested in the Vice President of Programming, Vice President of Pluralism, or Vice President of Engagement positions, letters of intent are due February 28th. To be eligible for one of these positions you must currently either serve on the E-board or the Hillel Assembly.
Lastly, if you have any questions about Hillel Executive Board responsibilities, time commitment, or leadership structure, please feel free to email Yael David at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be more than happy to answer your questions.
