Call for ACSP Student Governing Board Representative (Term: 2019 - 2021)
Date: October 8, 2018
Dear Fellow Ph.D. Students:
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 2019 to Spring 2021. 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 and Reimbursement Policy
For both meetings combined each year, ACSP reimburses each of the Student Reps up to the total amount of $2,500 per year for itemized travel expenses. Expenses that are reimbursable 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 possible 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. 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.
