Upcoming Elections

Nomination Process:

Upon confirming their candidacy, all nominees will be asked to submit the following:

  • A short CV (2 to 4 pages)
  • A brief, 250-word statement of interest/intent that could be circulated to the voting membership of GSOLE via the GSOLE list
  • An optional (max 100-word) statement including any additional information you would like the Elections and Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) Committees to know about you (this won’t be shared with the voting ballot). 

From the Bylaws (III.3):

Approval of Slate of Nominees: Besides being qualified in terms of knowledge and talent, nominees should represent, as much as possible, the diversity of the members of the organization in such areas as race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, physical disability, neurodivergence, multilingual background, nationality, institutional affiliation, type of institution, and size of institution. 

When the nomination period closes, we will create an electronic ballot and conduct elections during May, announcing winners by the first of June. The elected board members begin their terms on 1 July 2022. Questions about the election process or positions can be sent to: secretary@gsole.org.

    Other Opportunities

    Last Updated 20 December 2021

    Content Curators

    Our website is crucial for providing access to our services and support. Besides hosting just-in-time resources and professional events, such as webinars and our annual online conference, our website also hosts two peer-reviewed publications and archives of our multimodal events. Altogether, this content requires multiple volunteers to maintain and make it accessible—and we’re adding new material every month! We invite GSOLE members with any level of experience to get more involved as  Content Curators. Besides helping to facilitate online community and improve access to important OLI resources, you’ll have an opportunity to work with GSOLE administrators and the leaders of our program development committees.
