The following is the email I sent out to staff announcing that the Managing Board position application (and contracts) had been posted. Given that the Board contracts are not prepared yet, this election process is a bit trickier than it normally would be. Tonight my production manager relayed several question from prospective layout editors, and I am quickly realizing that evenly disseminating information throughout staff is one of the most challenging obstacles I am facing.
I am grateful to have been selected as the editor-in-chief for The Hullabaloo’s 2014-15 run, and I am excited to start the process of elections! Managing Board applications have been released and can be found at www.tulanehullabaloo.com under “Apply.” These positions include:
If you would like to apply for one of these positions, please fill out the Managing Board application with the position(s) you are interested in, read and sign the corresponding contract that outlines all specific responsibilities, and email them to email@example.com by 12 p.m. Saturday. You are welcome to apply for more than one Managing Board position. If you do not receive that position, you will also be able to apply for a/multiple Board position(s).
The Board application, with corresponding contracts that outline the specific duties of each position, will be released by next week and will be due 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 23. You are welcome, and encouraged in many cases, to apply for multiple Board positions. Simply fill out the application with each position sought in mind.
