One way to ensure a strong Section in the future is to create a robust leadership pipeline. Having a Section Leadership Succession plan in place allows easy transition from year to year so new leadership can learn from the out-going leadership and Section operation continues seamlessly.
Any SME member can volunteer as a local Section leader. Volunteer positions can be annual officer positions (i.e. Secretary) or a one-time opportunity (e.g. setting up a virtual presenter on your personal Zoom account).
Section officers, check out this example email to send to potential volunteer leadership.
If you are interested in a volunteer leadership position with your local Section, contact Rachel at Sections@smenet.org to get connected!
Thanks to the awesome volunteer leadership at SME, local Section leaders help bring professional development, K-12 education and scholarships to local areas across the world.
