It’s that time of the year. Our HS seniors are graduating (congratulations!). Time for us to ask who is interested in being an RCU Moderator for the 2003-2004 season. And time for you to step up to bat and take on a challenging and inspiring role in our organization. The Moderators are essentially the backbone of the RCU, so we are looking for willing and able candidates to fill next year’s open positions. If you’d like to be selected to hold office, please be aware that you are not limited to the responsibilities listed below. Each of our moderators work together on the same level to complete tasks in a timely fashion, and often times we help each other with different tasks even if they are specifically assigned to one individual. Below find a list of available positions and their descriptions. You will also see that we have created new Moderator positions. This is to improve and monitor the operation of our organization and ensure the fulfillment of the RCU’s mission in a most efficient manner. We also ask that if you are interested in a Moderator position, that you reply to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday - June/21/2003 with a brief explanation of why you would like to be selected and the qualifications you feel you possess (one paragraph will suffice). The current moderators will review your “mini-proposal,” and we will unveil our new Moderator Panel June 24.
