CSTA-Arizona Board Nominations Now Open!

CSTA-Arizona is holding elections this year for our 9-member board of directors and our application form has just opened!

You can nominate yourself, or you can recommend someone else for a board position
Why run for a board position?
If you find yourself working to build community and stay connected with other CS colleagues, or you are a champion of computer science in your district or region: then you are probably already performing many of the duties of a CSTA-Arizona officer. Becoming an officer gives you more support and resources to continue these efforts.
CSTA-Arizona officers are supported by the National CSTA chapter and receive additional professional development and officer-specific support to attend national events like the CSTA conference - in this way, being an officer can support your personal and professional growth.
What are the responsibilities?
CSTA-Arizona officers help plan and execute events or partnerships that increase CS education in Arizona and build community amongst Arizona CS educators. Some examples include: organizing regional meetups, working with partners like the Arizona Science Center or NCWIT on events, or larger-scale events like CSPDWeek.
Officers also help maintain CSTA-Arizona's non-profit status within the state of Arizona and make budgetary decisions on how best to spend funds to support Arizona educators

Who can run?
CSTA-Arizona is primarily a teacher-first organization, with all director positions preferring current classroom teachers. However, you do not need to be a current or former classroom teacher to run for some of our positions. In some cases, having experience with the structure and finances of a non-profit organization can be beneficial.
Can I nominate someone else?
Yes! There is a space in the application to nominate someone else. However, to be fully considered for a position, each person must submit their own application - being recommended by someone else is not enough. 
Where can I learn more?
Our elections page has up-to-date information, including a recording of our August election information session and a link to our Board Roles and Responsibilities doc. There is also a Board Information Session on Monday September 12th - click here to RSVP.
