Call for ACES/SACES Graduate Student Representative  

SACES is currently accepting applications from doctoral students who are early in their academic program to serve as the ACES Graduate Student Representative. Each of the five ACES regions nominates one student to serve as the ACES Graduate Student Representative (GSR). From these five nominations, the ACES Governing Council will choose one student to serve in this position. This is a three year service position: designee, current, and past GSR. A complete description of the ACES GSR requirements can be found here. 

SACES will select a GSR nominee to put forward to ACES. In the event that the SACES nominee is selected to serve as ACES GSR, another applicant will be selected to serve on the SACES Board for 2021-2022. In the event that the SACES nominee is not selected to serve as ACES GSR, the nominee will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2021-2022. 

The student nominee should be in the early stages of their counselor education doctoral program (either first year in a 3 year program or first or second year in a program that is 4 years or more) in order to be appointed to this position. A graduate student serving as a GSR must hold doctoral student/doctoral candidate status for at least 2 years of their service and only the final year could be served as a new faculty member or supervisor.   

To apply, please email the following materials in one PDF to Dodie Limberg at president@saces.org  

(1) A cover letter describing your educational and other relevant experiences to the position, including your previous and/or current involvement with ACES and SACES.  

(2) A current CV  

(3) Your answer to this question (posed by ACES): “Suppose you were selected for the GSR position, what would be different in a one year  in terms of this service position that would show it was useful, that you were the right person to apply, and that ACES was right to have selected you?”    

(4) A 3 minute video that discusses (a) Your goals as outlined in their submitted statement referencing what would be different in a year of service; (b) Your understanding of what this role does and the necessary level of commitment it will take. Please share your video from a cloud storage platform (i.e., Dropbox, Google Drive) and reference the URL link in your cover letter.

If you have any questions please contact Dodie Limberg at president@saces.org

Applications are due Friday, January 29, 2021.
