As we approach the DEN’s fifth birthday it is very easy to see that the community is stronger than ever. And it’s not because of us. It’s because of you. There are many ways to participate in the community from being a DEN member online to an active STAR to our latest level, DEN Guru. However, the driving force of the DEN is truly our DEN Leadership Councils.Last year we started an annual process where any STAR in the community can take the lead with our DEN Leadership Councils. It’s that time of the year again when our STARs can express interest in staying active as a LC member, joining an existing LC or helping to launch a new LC.
From now until April 30, 2010 you have the opportunity to become part of the DEN Leadership Councils for 2010-2011. Here’s how it works.
- Any STAR can help take the lead, but this year we have decided that it is in the best interest of the community to keep the Chair, Events Coordinator and Blog Coordinator positions for existing LCs intact, thus making these positions a two-year term.
- STARs who want to continue to serve on an existing LC or join an existing LC can express their interest by completing this form.
- For STARs in states where a leadership council is not currently formed, express your interest here and select DEN LC as your leadership council. If we have enough STARs express interest in a given state we will form a new leadership council. Otherwise, these STARs will be part of the overall DEN Leadership Council.
All STARs who want to be part of the 2010-2011 DEN Leadership Councils must complete this form.
For more details about the DEN Leadership Councils including the roles, responsibilities, and benefits please read the DEN LC Overview.
If you have any questions, please post them as comments so everyone can see the responses.
Thank you for your help in making the community even stronger.
