|Call for ACSP Board Student Representative, 2018 - 2020|
Deadline for Applications: December 19, 2017
The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP) invites students from member institutions to apply for the position of student representative on the ACSP Governing Board for the term of Spring 2018 to Spring 2020. Being a student representative is a great way to represent your fellow students while learning about the world of planning academicians.
The role of the Student Representatives is to ensure that the concerns of students are reflected in the discussions and decisions of the ACSP Governing Board. Two Student Representatives serve alternating, two-year terms. In order to be eligible, students must be enrolled in an ACSP member planning program as a doctoral student for the entire length of their term. A committee composed of the ACSP President and the current student representatives selects the candidate(s) and the President appoints the new student representative.
Governing Board Attendance & Reimbursement Policy:
ACSP reimburses each of the Student Reps up to the amount of $2500 each for itemized travel expenses to both Governing Board meetings attended each year in their two-year term to include: two nights lodging including all related taxes, food, airfare, mileage, airport shuttle or cab fare for the spring; and the same for the fall but with five nights lodging because of the length of stay required for the Student Reps’ responsibilities during the conference. Personal expenses such as telephone calls, Internet access or other personal items are not reimbursable expenses. The ACSP provides breakfast and lunch during the board meetings.
ACSP does not reimburse the Student Reps for the cost of registration for the annual conference because it is expected that they will be attending/presenting their work at the conference as active students of planning.
School Support Policy:
An official call for nominees for Student Reps will be shared via email and the ACSP Planning News after the conference. The selection and confirmation will be made in January or early February with the first board meeting scheduled for April 21, 2018 in New Orleans.
Please send your application materials as a single PDF attachment in one email, no later than 12:00 midnight EST, December 19, 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org with “ACSP STUDENT REP 2018-2020 APPLICATION” in the subject line.
