The Femme Collective is looking for new members!

Planning for the 2014 Femme Conference will start in 2013, and we’re looking for new members to work with us!!

The Femme Collective is made up of the following committees, and there are openings on all:
Registration Programming Performance Accessibility & Awareness Media Fundraising Logistics Keynotes Volunteers Executive Outreach

We’re looking for Femme-identified people who are committed to our mission and are interested in working in a collaborative environment as either Committee Chairs or Members.  You’ll:

•    Communicate with other collective members via e-mail and conference calls •    Fundraise

•    Bottomline and take responsibility for relevant tasks •    Attend the conference
Time commitment required varies; however, Femme Collective members should be able to spend a minimum of two (2) hours per week conference planning and upwards of ten (10) hours per week in the month preceding the conference.

If interested please send the following info to info@femme2012.com:
• Name
• Phone Number
• Any relevant identifying demographic information you choose to include
• E-mail Address
• City of Residency
• A short statement on why you’re interested
• A list of previous experience, if any, with conference planning or community activism (it’s okay if you don’t have any, just send us what skills you’d like to develop)
• Which committee you are interested in!

New collective members will be chosen by consensus among the current members; we will endeavor to place as many folks as we can. If we are unable to place all applicants this cycle, we hope you’ll submit a proposal for the conference itself. Getting involved is the best way to become a part of the Collective.
If you’d like to participate in planning, but don’t think being a member of the Collective is right for you right now, let us know; we’d love to hear your ideas on how we can work together.
Questions? Comments? Ideas? Contact us at info@femme2012.com
Deadline to submit an application is July 1st, 2013

We look forward to hearing from you! The Femme Collective
