Opportunities at NAPAWF

National Governing Board – Call for Nominations

NAPAWF is pleased to announce the call for nominees to serve on the National Governing Board. There are 2 positions open for the 2015 board slate. NAPAWF seeks energetic, visionary, fabulous, fierce leaders for nominees to help lead the organization into its 20th year.

Founded in 1995, NAPAWF’s mission is to build a movement to advance social justice and human rights for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and girls in the United States. NAPAWF implements its mission by increasing the leadership, political power and visibility of AAPI women and girls through community and public education, advocacy, collaboration, and grassroots multi-issue organizing.

NAPAWF’s board members are expected to serve a term of three years. The focus of the board of directors is on governance and fund development. Members are expected to participate in bimonthly conference calls, and two face-to-face meetings a year. In addition, members are expected to fundraise, serve on at least one committee, and act as ambassadors for NAPAWF.

NAPAWF has identified a few specific skills that we hope to bring onto the board. 2015 is growth year for NAPAWF as well as the first year we are operating as an independent 501c3 organization. In light of this, we seek candidates with experience in financial management and non-profit accounting as well as non-profit management skills.

NAPAWF also seeks a diverse board and strongly encourages applications from those outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, and/or those of South East Asian, South Asian, Japanese, Hapa, or Pacific Islander ethnicities and/or those who identify as LGBTQ.

Timeline: Nominations due by March 15, 2015. Only complete submissions will go before NAPAWF’s Board Development Committee for consideration. As the committee reviews applications, it will set up interviews with candidates under consideration. The National Governing Board will approve board candidates with the hopes of new board members joining for the July Board meeting.

APPLY TODAY! Please submit your questions and/or the Nomination Form to boardnominations@napawf.org.
