WFPA Leadership Applications Open

April 3, 2011

Hello all you food policy advocates, community engagement and urban ag enthusiasts!

Now that the first wave of election emails has passed – it is time for WFPA to partake in board selection season. If you are interested in being more involved with the food policy group, we’d love to hear from you. We’ve been really busy this year setting up a fabulous network of enthusiastic students from universities around NYC and absolutely know only good things will come of WFPA! We’ve even being awarded the President’s Service Award for our work amongst the NYU community – how cool is that?!

If you’re interested in being a leader in this group, in shaping it for next year and really stretching your change-potential while at Wagner, please email by Wednesday, April 6th. We’ll get back to you within a day or so!

To apply, please answer the following questions (in 75 words or less for each response):

  1. Why do you want to serve in a leadership capacity for the WFPA?
  2. What 2-3 events would you suggest if a member of the WFPA board?
  3. How do you see your experience being enhanced by your involvement on the WFPA Board?
  4. If there is a specific area of food policy that you are particularly interested in, please share your hopes for its future in the political and cultural climate of our society!

Positions will be determined internally after the board has been selected, but please make a note if you are interested in a specific role (and why):

  • Treasurer extraordinaire
  • Community engagement/volunteer coordinator
  • External Communications organizer (Blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc)
  • Blog Editor (Responsible for organizing post frequency, etc)
