“We exist to make East Nashville a great place to live and run, and to make running accessible to everyone in our community.” – East Nasty Running Club Mission Statement
East Nasty Running Club is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization and is governed by a Board of Directors. We are a ‘working board’ – meaning we are the hands and feet that make everything happen. Wednesday night runs, finances, party/event planning, fundraising, social media, merch and gear, etc are all decided upon, managed, operated, and executed by members of the Board.
We are issuing a call for new Board Members and opening a candidate application process.
Being a Board Member is very rewarding, but also comes with responsibilities. Board Members are required to attend quarterly meetings (usually on weekends), be co-responsible for one quarter each year of our Wednesday night runs (set-up, tear down, communications, etc), and lead/serve the club in an area of general need (finance/accounting, fundraising/partnerships, social media, event planning, merch design & sales, etc.). Board Members are, of course, expected to be the finest reflection to the community of our club’s values and mission. Our Board works best when it’s made up of all kinds of runners both faster and slower, from 5Kers to Ultra-marathoners. You don’t have to live in East Nashville, but our club’s efforts are focused here so you should be very interested in and familiar with the area. We are looking for people who have a passion for fitness and community, who have skills, expertise, and ideas to help maintain and grow our organization, and who can make a sincere commitment to serving East Nasty Running Club.
If you are interested in serving our club on the Board, with an understanding of the commitment involved, then we invite you to fill out the online application form. If you have any specific questions, you can email Jeremy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Duane (email@example.com) or ask any current board member about their own experience. It would be a good idea to review our About page where you can also see our current leadership team. We will be accepting and reviewing applications through the end of March or so. The Board will contact you after our next meeting (which is sometime in April) to set up an interview should it be a potential fit. Please be patient! Thank you, and ENFL!
PS – If you’re looking for a lower commitment way to get involved with East Nasty, we always have plenty of areas where need volunteers. Check out Volunteer Page for more info!
