APPLICATIONS FOR REGIONAL DIRECTORS AND CERTAIN STATE POSITIONS FOR 2019-2020 HAVE CLOSED. (If you messaged us and we gave you an extension, feel free to apply for any position!)
We are leaving applications open all year for local level coordinators as we want as many people involved with Beyond Resolved as possible. You can read below the application about how our administration is structured. If you would like to be a local level coordinator, we would love to have you!
Additionally, we are constantly hoping to reach more states and more debaters dedicated to promoting inclusivity and equality. If you are from one of the following states, feel free to apply to be a state level coordinator:
Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, West Virginia, Hawaii, Alaska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Montana, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, South Dakota, Missouri, Kansas. We also will accept applications from anywhere international!
All genders are welcome to apply for state and local level positions.
There is no word maximum or minimum for questions. Feel free to write in as many or few words as needed.
Instead of an advisory board, this year we have around six Beyond Resolved Regional Directors, who are in charge of organizing meetups, writing blog posts, etc in their region. Their main focus will be on reaching out to the community and connecting femxle debaters in their region with each other and with Beyond Resolved both at tournaments and online. Keep in mind, the regions will most likely be comprised of 6-8 states, so the regional director will need to coordinate events in multiple different cities and states (with the support of other members of the BR community!). We are looking for individuals who are open-minded, passionate, hardworking, responsible, and organized. Regional Directors serve in a role that requires overseeing initiatives as well as working on them themselves. Regional Directors will also make up an Executive Board that will run the core aspects of the website.
State level coordinators and local level coordinators who will have similar responsibilities but for their specific areas. All involved will be responsible for contributing to the blog, mentor program, etc. Since regions will include multiple states, much of the responsibility of Regional Directors will be communicating with debaters from different areas to organize Beyond Resolved events and initiatives. All candidates who apply for a Regional Director position will be considered for state and local positions as well. Every single female presenting/identifying or nonbinary person who applies and does not get the regional position will be in direct contact with their regional director and have the opportunity to coordinate events, blog posts, etc. in their state, city, or at the tournaments they attend.
All genders are welcome to apply for state/ local coordinating positions. In fact, we encourage male debaters to be a part of Beyond Resolved’s initiatives, especially on the regional level. Our website is currently PF focused, but we plan to expand into other events next year, namely LD, Parli, Policy, Congress, and Extemp and any others that are requested/needed.
For full disclosure, male applicants will not be considered for the Regional Director position as we believe that female-presenting/ identifying and non-binary debaters have the experience and first-hand knowledge of the gender equality issues that we are trying to combat, making them more suitable for leading Beyond Resolved and our initiative to reach out to other female presenting/identifying and non-binary debaters, connect with and empower them.
All positions will serve on committees for different initiatives within Beyond Resolved, i.e. blog posts, the Youtube channel we are launching, podcasts, potential online tournaments, educational resources, our mentor program, and much more. Committee positions will rotate monthly or bimonthly, so all applicants will be able to work on initiatives that pertain to their skills and interests.
