2023 BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTIONS

ABOUT WOMEN IN VINYL’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Women in Vinyl is looking to expand our board for the first time since becoming at non profit 501(c)3 last year! As we continue to grow it is important for us to bring in diverse industry perspectives, and expertise to best serve our mission.

Women in Vinyl board members will offer their expertise to represent the organization at large, and assist in expanding, and setting the priorities, direction, and goals for the organization. The Women in Vinyl Board of Directors’ terms run for two years. Each board seat is term limited to one, full two-year term. Any board member, and member company, serving a full two-year term must sit out one year at the conclusion of their term before being eligible to run for election again.

Board members will be kept informed by Women in Vinyl officers of important developments as they arise then provide guidance on how to better serve the vinyl community.  You will be required to meet via teleconference at least once a year to review the agenda and progress of the organization.  There may be occasional other committee meetings to be determined by Board Members upon creation.

The Women in Vinyl officers have the right to terminate an elected board member’s term at any time for misconduct, or misrepresentation of the organizations mission, vision and values.  We are not exclusive to an only women identifying board if your values align with the below, and you do not have to be based in the USA to apply.

  • Anyone with a passion for the vinyl record industry with experience in or adjacent to it.  Vinyl is our focus!
  • Someone who wholeheartedly supports diversity within this industry.
