Boston SIB Creates Steering Committee

The Boston SIB is gearing up for their second 20 years by creating an elected steering committee. They used the steering committee process in the New York City District Council SIB as their inspiration. CLICK HERE to view. Boston positions include:

  • SIB Chair
  • Co-Chair
  • Recording Secretary
  • Financial Coordinator
  • Education and Development Advocate
  • Warden
  • Political Coordinator
  • Mentoring and Retention Coordinator
  • Outreach Coordinator
  • Events and Social Media Coordinator
  • Staff Coordinator

The positions were based on needed tasks like Recording Secretary, as well as the five International SIB goal areas: organizing/recruiting, retention, education/development, political/legislative, communication/public involvement.

Candidates created Bios, which the election committee mailed to all Sisters in the two Boston Locals (327 and 328) and the specialty trades Locals (56, 723, 2168).  They also phone-banked and used Hustle texts to reach Sisters.

Nominations occurred on May 21, 2019 at the SIB meeting – it was a full house as the photo shows. Elections occurred on June 18, 2019.
