New Project Team member needed: Resources and Education Director: Nominations

Recommended Posts

Kelly

We are now taking nominations for a PT member for the office of Resources and Education Director.

 

The Project Team is in charge of visibility projects on AVEN. For more information about what the Project Team does, please see this link:

 

http://avenpt.tumblr.com/projectteam

 

Possible Project Team activities include:

 

- dealing with AVEN's media and research requests,

- managing resources,

- giving help to others with their visibility projects.

 

All PT positions have a duration of 2 years. If anyone steps down in that time, a new election will be held and the replacement will have a new term of 2 years.

 

The office that is presently in need of an officer is the Resources and Education Director, described as:

 

Responsibilities: The primary responsibility of this position is to work on developing asexuality related resources. It is expected that this will be accomplished through putting together and leading small teams. This position is intended to help documenting the state of asexuality and to address various questions of interest, to obtain and analyse quantitative data and keep interested people informed.


The person elected for this role will coordinate our cooperation with other organisations like asexual and LGBT+ groups from all over the world. They will also be responsible for liaising with Asexual Census Survey Team, the team that runs the Ace Community Census, and offer them support where needed. They should also explore other ways of obtaining more quantitative information about asexuality, e.g. through omnibus surveys.
 
Requirements:
People applying for this position should be able to lead small teams working on developing resources as needed, have good writing skills and either have a general familiarity with basic statistics or be able to learn. Graphic design ability  and knowledge of languages other than English are also welcome.

 

If you think that you would be an awesome AVEN Resources and Education Director of the Project Team, please throw you hat, turnip, whatever, in here.

 

To run, qualifications include that a person must have been a member for at least 6 months, and have at least 100 posts that are not in the Just For Fun or Welcome Area forums. You also cannot run with an active, current, warning. A bio is required by voting time. Election rules are here:

 

http://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/90514-rules-and-procedure-for-elections/

 

 

You can run for only one office at a time.

 

Voting will be by a vote of confidence.

 

This is the timeline for this election:

 

Thursday, 2 November to Thursday, 9 November: Nominations.

Thursday, 9 November to Sunday, 12 November: Dedicated Q&A period.

Sunday, 12 November to Sunday, 19 November: Voting.

You might have noticed that this role has not existed until now. It will replace the Resources and Survey Director (and therefore whoever gets elected will replace me). This role is a big opportunity to bring asexual visibility work to the next level and find new ways of reaching people. Whoever gets elected into this role will define it.


I will be leaving my elected role, but that doesn't mean I stop helping out with PT things. It has been fun being part of the PT, but I've been so busy in real life lately that I am not as reliable as I believe an elected staff member should be. So I will just stick to helping out wherever I can. During the time I've been in the Project Team there have been a few changeovers, but personally I enjoyed working with each and every one of the PT members that were in the team during my time. So I encourage everybody to join the team, it's really great!

 

As for the survey team, which was originally coordinated by the Project Team,  they have done a massively impressive job with the 2017 survey and the 2015 survey report, and I'm confident the 2016 report will come soon as well. The team is being run independently, and all there is left to do for the Project Team regarding their work is to support their work where needed.

Good luck to anyone who decides to run. AVEN is more than just a set of message boards, and this position is a great example of how much more can be done. I think anyone who wants to become a more involved activist and advocate for asexuality's place in human diversity could find a great opportunity here, without having to start from scratch. :cake:
