Nominations are now open for Element 11 leadership!
We are pleased to announce a change in Element 11 organizational structure. In this new structure, The Board of Directors will be shrinking, all positions this year will remain filled by existing members. The Board will be focused on the administration of the event, but this opens up the operation of the event up to a new tier of community leadership – The Cabinet. Cabinet positions are analogous to first-year Board positions under the old structure and will be the primary recruitment pool for The Board of Directors as positions open up in the future. Joining the Cabinet is a year-round commitment, and Cabinet Members will earn 2 volunteer tickets for Cabinet-level positions are responsible for the operation of vital Element 11 Departments. Cabinet members will set budgets for their departments, serve on committees related to their area of focus, and recruit for and design the organizational framework under their level of leadership. Ideal applicants are self-starters, possess an attention to detail and professional abilities in the area they wish to volunteer, and are regular participants within our community and event.
