April 9, 2015: Run for a seat on the Board of Governors!

EFA's secretary has issued the call for nominations for the 2015-2016 elections.

Serving on the Board of Governors is a great way for emerging and veteran freelancers alike to meet active, experienced EFAers across the editorial world and have a voice in their professional organization. Volunteering to serve looks good on your resume, and your fellow board members and committee chairs make great references!

Candidates are currently being sought for:
1 Co-executive director, serving a two-year term
1 Treasurer, serving a two-year term
7 Members at large (MALs), each serving one year

Residing in or near New York City is NOT a requirement for election to the board, but you must be an EFA member in good standing.

May 7 is the deadline for nominations and candidate biographical and platform statements. For full details on positions open, nomination requirements, and the election calendar, see the email "Call for Nominations" sent to members on April 9. If you did not receive this email or would like more information, please contact office AT the-efa.org.
