Join your local board / become a city champion.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a City Champion or Advisory Board member for your Women in Digital chapter. We are seeking a diverse group of leaders for your local chapter. This means we need all women at all levels and stages in their career. To that end, there are no wrong answers to these questions. Please answer honestly and show us some vulnerability for extra points.
Advisory Board members and City Champions are asked to serve 12 months. While you will get significant discounts to major events like the Annual Conference or your Regional Conference, we do not offer free memberships to Champions or Advisory Board members. In fact, we request that all applicants become Women in Digital members before completing this form.
FAQs about the Women in Digital Board:
How many hours a month will I have to dedicate to Women in Digital?
It depends on your board role. At a minimum, we ask that you attend monthly or quarterly board meetings. Meeting frequency depends on your city and chapter size.
Will I be required to go to all of my local Women in Digital events?
Nope! We do ask that you make as many events as possible, but we realize that our board members can’t attend board meetings, meet ups and peer circles every month. For some this is just too much! So, we would ask you to attend at least one Women in Digital event a month, making your peer circle meetings the #1 priority.
What are the benefits and perks?
You get all the glory. As your chapter grows, you will be a part of that growth. Your network will grow along with your experience in learning how to lead and found a local organization from the ground up. Also, you’ll feel all of the warm and fuzzies as you truly give back and help to bring change within our industry.
Are there specific board roles?
There sure are. Once you are accepted you will be able to choose a board role, or will be asked to take a recommended role. There are also strict Advisory Chair roles, these are ideal for our busiest of executives. Board roles include: Event Chair, Marketing Chair, Sponsorship Chair, Membership Chair, (Michelle, can you fill in the rest).
