The Call for Division Councilors
Each division seeks motivated and energetic members to serve as Councilors. Councilors are a crucial link between the organization and its members, helping to set policy; design and coordinate programs, workshops, and meetings; and create information resources. The Council seeks nominees who fully represent the undergraduate research community, so attention is paid to diversity with respect to institutional type, area of specialization, identity, and geographic location. The Nominations Committee members will be glad to answer any questions you may have about CUR and the responsibilities of Councilors. CUR encourages you to reach out to your division's chair to ask any questions about the activities and involvement in your division.
What is Expected of a Councilor?
Councilors must be current individual members of CUR with a demonstrated commitment to CUR’s goals and who have the time and interest to serve the larger CUR community. CUR also welcomes those that are new to the organization to run for Councilor. Division Councilors serve a three-year term. Councilors elected during this election cycle will serve a term from July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2026. Each division has a maximum of 24 Councilors. The number of open positions may vary depending on division.
Division Councilor responsibilities include serving in leadership or programmatic capacities within the division. Councilors will be asked to represent their division in available task force or committee positions within the organization. In addition, Councilors may serve as institute facilitators and coordinators. Many members of the Executive Board are elected by and from the Councilors.
Councilors are expected to attend the two-day annual business meeting each June. The 2023 Annual Business Meeting will be held virtually with no cost, requiring only a time commitment from Division Councilors. Future meetings may be in person and require a cost for travel, which will be the responsibility of the attendee. If elected, CUR can provide a copy of your election letter to administrators you designate to help secure administrative support for your work with CUR and your division.
