One of those positions will have a role on the Membership Committee and the other on the Communications Committee. These new positions are for a one year term running from July 2014 until July 2015.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the strategic direction of yPIE, overseeing all aspects of the organization, including membership, communications, partnerships and activities. The Board is made up of eight young leaders, each of whom serve on one of four committees: Communications, Membership, Networking, and Content.
