The Iyengar Yoga Association of Los Angeles is seeking members who would be interested in becoming an elected member of the Board of Trustees. We have at least three positions to fill for the upcoming term, running from January 2018 - December 2020. Being a board member is a wonderful opportunity to support our community and the Institute, to help make impactful decisions and guide their health and success. We are looking for members that have special skills or experiences that could be beneficial to operations of the Institute, such as: legal, financial, business expertise, human resources, events, marketing, communications (including website and social media), digital archiving, coordinating volunteer efforts - and of course a deep desire to promote the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Responsibilities would involve attending monthly Board meetings, and contributing in various ways to ensure the health and success of our Institute and Association. If you are interested in being considered for one of these positions, or if you would like to nominate another person please contact Laura Baker, Membership Chair, IYALA Board of Directors, at email@example.com. Please write a brief statement outlining your background in Iyengar Yoga, and your area(s) of interest. Applications for nomination or self-nomination should be received by September 15, and elections take place in November 2017. Thank you for your consideration of this important opportunity.
