The CLUB, and Incubator of Women Leaders, Announces 2016 Leadership Drive

Cupertino, CA, November 21, 2015 --( The CLUB, a San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley organization dedicated to advancing women in leadership, announced last week that is it now accepting applications for 2016 leadership positions and committee placement within the organization. In 2016 the CLUB will be further expanding their leadership structure and roles to best support continued growth. The leadership roles in 2016 will be comprised of:

· Board of Directors – The CLUB is seeking a few strategic thinkers who can further the CLUB’s reach and also roll up their sleeves to provide leadership and oversight for critical CLUB initiatives.

Time commitment: 10 to 20 hours per month. 3 year term (minimum).

· Managing Directors / Operating Committee – A Managing Director will be responsible for the leadership and performance of each CLUB committee. Formerly, called Committee Chairs, a newly formed Operating Committee will be comprised of these Managing Directors to facilitate coordination and synergies between committees. This leadership body will meet once per quarter as an operating committee and once per quarter with the Board of Directors in addition to any committee leadership meetings.

Time commitment: 6 to 10 hours per month.

· Committee Directors – Committee Directors will lead key initiatives and programs within each Committee and will report into the committee’s Managing Director.

Time commitment: 4 to 8 hours per month.

· Community Leaders – help organize quarterly informal events for a subset of the CLUB community (e.g. industry, geography, and experience level groups).

Time commitment: 2 to 3 hours per month.

The CLUB is currently seeking applicants at each of these leadership levels. Applicants not interested in leadership positions at this time, are encouraged to join one of the CLUB’s many committees.

To apply to leadership positions or to choose a committee to join in 2016, please fill out this brief survey by Monday, November 30th.

CLUB leaders will be given the opportunity to lead or co-lead teams, with guidance and feedback from other CLUB leaders and/or the Board. CLUB leaders will also get to know more CLUB members and deepen the connections already made. Please note that some committee leadership positions have already been filled.
