Part-time Volunteer Assignment

Job Description  

The ACM-W Executive Committee is recruiting for a volunteer to co-lead the Regional Activities Committee to strengthen the collaboration between the leaders as well as the chapters present in our international ACM-W community.  This is a relatively new focus area, so the successful candidate will be empowered to imagine and build out programs of their own design to continue to grow ACM-W collaboration with chapters, regions, and broader ACM, with additional efforts to materialize ACM-W presence in the new proposed regions/countries. An experience of working with different regions and ACM-W Celebrations would be a plus. 

The mission of the  ACM-W Regional Activities Committee is to facilitate communication between the different regions of the ACM-W international community. The Regional Activities Committee is also responsible for the development and  maintenance of healthy networking for regions to collaborate at leadership as well as chapter levels between different existing regions as well as new regions. 

Compensation, Hours and Benefits

It is expected that the Regional Activities Committee Co-Chair will spend 10-30 hours a month including monthly co-chair meetings, and attend two 2-day face-to-face meetings a year. Travel expenses for the face-to-face meetings will be reimbursed. The assignment is for a two year term. 

ACM-W is a non-profit organization, administered entirely by volunteers. This is a volunteer position, but it directly impacts the ACM-W global community of 70,000+ members. The Communications co-chair’s names, photos and contact info are included on the website. They will also receive a special ACM-W Leadership badge for their email signature card, and social media accounts.

The successful applicant will have experience with leading large program development projects, managing volunteers, and creating platforms to facilitate collaboration between diverse groups.
