The National Press Photographers Association is seeking candidates for the position of Student Representative. Each year in November, one Student Representative shall be appointed to a one-year term by the Regional Chairs Representative. The Student Representative shall advocate for, and disseminate information and initiatives to, the NPPA student chapters, visual journalism schools, and the student NPPA members. They will co-chair the Student Council with the Associate Regional Chairs Representative, attend Board meetings, give a formal report of student matters, participate in debate and discussion, and have voting privileges on all matters before the Board. At the end of an outgoing Student Representative's term, they may stay involved with the council in an advisory capacity, to support and ease the transition of the incoming Student Representative, and are invited to attend board meetings by conference call, as special guests.
To apply, send a statement of interest to current student rep, Bridget Fetsko, at [email protected] by 5pm ET on Friday, Nov. 13, 2020 for consideration.
