Junior Board Applications Open


VASTA’s Junior Board is open to members of any age who identify as being in the early stages of their voice and speech career and would like to learn how the association runs by serving on the board of directors as a non-voting member for two years. First-year Junior Board Members attend virtual meetings and read the minutes from in-person meetings. Second-year JBMs attend all in-person and virtual board meetings and become more actively involved in the board’s activities, following areas of interest that they have developed and voicing ideas, opinions, and the views of the VASTA members they represent.

 

VASTA’s mission seeks to represent as many diverse views as possible in order to enrich all our approaches to teaching and coaching voice and speech in education, business, the arts, and the wider community. The Junior Board is open to applicants globally. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from underrepresented voices and specifically encourage applications from members who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color.

 


APPLY NOW



To apply, interested individuals should submit a cover letter to the Junior Board search panel. The cover letter can be typewritten (not exceeding 1500 words) OR an audio/video submission (not exceeding 3 minutes).  Please include: 

 

-  Information about your voice and speech experience, involvement in VASTA to date, and your career goals. Applicants do need not to have attended a VASTA conference to apply. 

- What you would like to gain by being a member of the Junior Board.

-  Your commitment to, interest in, and/or experience with equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility protocols/practices.

- What other skills, interests, knowledge, or experience you would bring to the role.

If you wish to upload a CV (curriculum vitae) or resume to support your application, you are welcome to do so, though this is not a requirement.
