Are you an experienced freelancer with wisdom to share? Would you like to get more involved with Freelancers Union? If so, we want you to be our next Member Representative on the Freelancers Union Board of Directors!
Freelancers Union was created to serve the interests of independent workers, and member participation is critical to shaping the future of the organization. The Member Representative has the same responsibilities as our other Board Members in seeking the greatest success for Freelancers Union as an institution, and its ability to enact its mission.
Member Representatives are elected by the Freelancers Union membership at large to serve a two-year term. They must be able to attend (either in person or by phone) 3 board meetings per year to discuss events, campaigns, and other issues related to the organization. They bring their experience and knowledge of the freelance landscape to help guide us into the future.
Ready to step up? Submit your application here! Applications will be accepted from October 12-26, after which the Freelancers Union nominating committee will interview candidates and make their recommendations. The candidates they recommend will then be up for a vote from the full Freelancers Union membership.
The newly elected Member Representative’s first board meeting will be the Bi-Annual Meeting in January 2022.
