Members of the Student Advisory Board are part of the Region 1 Leadership team. They meet regularly with Student Representatives to discuss the priorities of the students within Region 1 and advise the Leadership Board to promote student centered programming and to ensure that the regional festival reflects the interests of the students to the highest extent possible.

We are seeking members that represent a diverse array of lived experiences, including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, gender identity, educational background and more.
Term of Service: Student Advisory Board members generally serve for one Festival “year.” If they wish to continue for another Festival year, they may do so provided they regularly attend meetings and contribute to the advisory process.
We are seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, gender identity, sexual orientation as well as areas of creative specialty/interest. Please include a brief personal statement that addresses the ways in which your lived experiences might enhance or support diversity within Region 1.
