Interested in running Emerson College Quidditch? Well you’re in luck. We are seeking enthusiastic members for our 2015 spring Executive Board! All members of Emerson College Quidditch are eligible to run for a position on our Executive Board.
You can submit your nomination using this Google Form. You can submit your name for nomination for as many positions as you want, but please submit only one nomination per form. All nominations are due by midnight on Sunday, November 9th. Please note that holding an elected position on our Executive Board requires attendance at weekly meetings.
We are also looking for dedicated members to fill some non-voting positions within the organization. These are unelected positions that current members volunteer for, and these non-voting positions do not require attendance at weekly Executive Board meetings (although attendance is encouraged). The current members in these positions will reach out to those expressing interest.
The descriptions for both elected Executive Board positions and volunteer positions are listed below, taken directly from our Constitution. If you have any questions, please contact Lindsey Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to receiving your nominations!
The Vice President assists the Commissioner in any and all ways, attending all meetings with the Commissioner. They are responsible for working with other divisions to ensure that teams have practice time and space, as well as time and space for outdoor organization-wide events (such as Intramural League games). This may include obtaining permits for field space near and around Emerson College. It is the Vice President’s responsibility to act as the Commissioner during his/her absence, assist in day-to-day logistical workings of the organization, and assist other members of the E-Board with Intramural League management and other projects.
The Communications Director oversees and manages all communication efforts produced by the organization. This may include organizing newsletters and organization-wide emails, helping answer questions from outside press interested in learning about quidditch and ECQ, and assisting other members of the E-Board and organization with Intramural League management and other projects. They are also responsible for maintaining a record of the organization’s history. The Communications Director works with the Media Director and Sales/Marketing Director to compile content for newsletters, social media, and the website. The Communications Director is also responsible for putting together a team that writes articles on all Intramural League games, as well as other events.
The Media Director oversees and manages all photo and video aspects of the organization. This may include organizing photographers and videographers to document Intramural League gameplay, editing photos and videos, and putting together promotional material. The Media Director works with the Communications Director, the Sales/Marketing Director, the Social Media Manager, and the Webmaster to supply photo and video material when necessary.
Intramural League Captains:
The Intramural Captains are the leaders of the individual Intramural League teams which are as follows: Boylston Berserkers, Faneuil Falcons, Jamaica Plains Jaguars, Old North Outlaws, Park Street Pulverizers, and South End Slothbears. Intramural League teams have a near equivalent number of players. For every team there must be two captains, and only one captain may play on the field at a time to ensure objectivity of the game. Intramural Captains will draft their team at the beginning of the season, organize practices, educate player members on the game of quidditch, and lead their teams in sportsmanlike gameplay against other Intramural League teams.
For the 2015 spring semester, we are looking for captains for the following Intramural League teams (number denotes open captain positions): Boylston Berserkers (1), Faneuil Falcons (1), Jamaica Plain Jaguars (1), Old North Outlaws (1), Park Street Pulverizers (1).
Social Media Manager and Webmaster
The Social Media Manager and Webmaster are non-voting positions with a standing invitation to attend E-Board meetings. They are responsible for managing all social media (Facebook page, Twitter, and Tumblr) and website, respectively. They are positions that are assigned by the current Commissioner or Media Director for convenience in the same manner as detailed in Article XIII Section 8. Since they are non-voting positions, they may be assigned to either current E-Board members or other League Members of ECQ.
