US Servas needs talented, committed volunteers to guide the organization through an exciting time. Both challenges and opportunities abound. The Board of Directors needs leadership that will advance our organization’s mission.  

The US Servas Elections Committee is seeking nominees to fill four positions on the board (one two-year term and three three-year terms). Applicants will be considered by the committee to be placed on a ballot that will be put before the full membership for a vote.

Qualifications

A director must meet the following qualifications:

    • Must be at least 18 years old,
    • Must be a US Servas member for one year or more,
    • Must be resident in the US for the entire term for which the person is elected, and
    • Willing to devote 3 to 5 hours a week to the position.

About the Board

The US Servas Board is a working board.  The operations of the board include management of (a) memberships, (b) technology, (c) Communications/marketing/events, and (d) finance/accounting/fundraising/fund management.  As a director you are expected to volunteer your own time as well as manage other volunteers to fulfill the operation needs of managing US Servas.  More information is provided in the application form.

Any candidate committed to advancing the future of US Servas will be considered. In addition, we are specifically seeking persons with backgrounds or skills in the following areas:

    • Finance (Finding a director qualified to assume the volunteer position of Treasurer is a high priority.)
    • Marketing/Communications

All Directors must be comfortable with basic technology such as email, virtual meetings and website navigation.
