Local Section & Executive Student Committee SubcommitteeIf you are interested in getting involved in YPAB but would like to do so on a local level, there are a number of opportunities available for you in the Local Section and Executive Student Committee Subcommittee. This subcommittee is chaired by Billy Novak and is tasked with maintaining the connection between YP Local Sections, Student Chapters, the ESC, and YPAB. If you are looking for a leadership role, you could apply to be the representative for your region if it has not yet been filled. The regions currently in need of a regional rep are:
Northeast Region Mid-Atlantic Region Mid America Region Pacific Northwest Region Western Region InternationalIf your region already has a region representative or you are looking for a challenge, you could take on the position of New YP Group Rep which is tasked with helping new YP local sections be successful by pairing them with active sections and maintaining guidance materials. If you aren’t quite ready to take on a leadership position or you don’t currently have the time, you can join the LS & ESC Subcommittee and participate on conference calls, and help out with initiatives that interest you as your time permits.
Programming SubcommitteeHave you ever wondered how sessions and activities at the various conferences get organized? If so, you may want to join the Programming Subcommittee. While all of the leadership positions for the 2012-2013 year are currently filled, we still need people interested in helping out with organizing events and brainstorming ideas for YP sessions. Joining the programming subcommittee is a great way to learn how conferences come together in AIChE and prepare you for leadership roles on the YPAB Programming Subcommittee or with Divisions programming groups.
Publications SubcommitteeIf you are interested in writing and editing, then you may be interested in joining the Publications Subcommittee. This subcommittee is responsible for all YPAB publications including the YP Newsletter. If you are looking for a leadership role, there is currently a critical position open for Webmaster. The Webmaster is in charge of keeping the YPAB page on the AIChE website current. There are also a number of roles we would like to fill in the future if we have interested volunteers. These positions are:
