RAISE Committee Vacancies Reopened for Nomination
Are you interested in joining the leadership committee for the largest global network for Student Engagement?
We are delighted to reopen the call for self-nominations for the RAISE Committee Member Vacancies below. The RAISE committee will co-opt these positions for this academic year 2021/22. The roles will be reopened for nomination at the next election, which will be held at our annual conference 7-8th September 2022.
The RAISE Committee is responsible for the management and oversight of all RAISE activities including the annual conference, Special Interest Groups, reading groups and collaborating with other sector organisations to advance student engagement.
Successful applicants will be expected to attend the following committee meetings/conference:
8th November 2021, 10-1pm (online)
10th -11th January 2022, possible residential (in-person) -- venue TBC
4th April 2022, 1-4pm (in person/hybrid?)
20th June 2022, 1-4pm (in person?)
7-8th September 2022 (in Lincoln)
Meetings may be held in person or by electronic means (including MS Teams or e-mail), but at least two meetings a year will be held in person (pandemics allowing!) and one may be held at the same time as the AGM during the annual conference. RAISE will cover the travel expenses and conference fee for student committee members.
Applicants should be aware that the RAISE Committee and positions operate on a voluntary basis and successful applicants will be expected to commit approximately 100 hours a year.
The RAISE Committee would benefit from a diversity of backgrounds, both in person and in profession. In particular we welcome nominations from those from Black, Asian and other ethnic minority backgrounds as they are currently under-represented on the committee.
