Be a regional leader
Serving as a regional leader is voluntary, meaning you will not get paid a salary in return for your time and expertise. However, you will be entitled to the following:
- Free All Events Ticket (AET) to regional convention during your term
- Free registration to education events hosted by the Quartet of Nations
- Paid travel and accommodation expenses, including per diems, for regional management team meetings, conventions, and other events
- One time subsidy to attend international convention (to claim only once even when you’ve served multiple terms)
Perhaps the most important aspect is the chance to learn a new skill or further develop the ones you already have. Plus, you will be working with a group of fun-loving women, dedicated to looking after the membership and the promotion of our craft.
What experience do I need?
Regional leadership positions are just the same as chorus team/board positions – you just do not see everyone as often! Take a look below to see the equivalent positions between choruses and the regional management team.
Team Coordinator – President, Team Leader
Directors Coordinator – Director, Assistant Director, Music Team Member
Communications Coordinator – Secretary, Webmaster
Finance Coordinator – Treasurer, Finance Manager
Education Coordinator – Director, Assistant Director, Music Team Member
Events Coordinator – Show Chairperson, Performance Coordinator
Membership Coordinator – Membership Secretary, Board Member
Marketing Coordinator – PR, Publicity Officer
Workshop Coordinator – Events Officer, Assistant Director, Music Team Member
Do bear in mind that you do not need to have served in your chorus management to apply for a regional post. You may have acquired the necessary skills outside of Sweet Adelines International, in your job, for example. Applications are also welcome (and encouraged!) from Chapter-at-Large (CAL) members.
The regional leadership is always looking out for potential leaders so if you fancy a role in the region, please complete the application form and submit
