EU and America’s Coordinating Committee Chairs

The members of the Coalition are where its strength lies. The 77 organizations which make up the coalition must all be effectively coordinated to fully leverage our strength. Chairs are crucial in making sure the coalition is able to reach its full strength.

The role of chair is to engage, facilitate, and support member organizations taking an active role in the coalition. This means arranging calls, coordinating agendas, and facilitating discussion. It can also mean being an ambassador for the coalition by attending conferences and engaging members in other ways.

All of this is done in collaboration and with the support of the Assistant Director of the Coalition. We expect that these chairs would need to dedicate to 2-3 hours per week to achieve this.

The two successful candidates will be self motivated, organized, and passionate about opening up academic research. You don’t need to be an expert in volunteer engagement or Open Access and/or Open Educational Resources, but experience in these areas will be very beneficial.
