Become a Board Member

The Stand currently has two openings for community members to join our Board of Directors. Board members meet every other month for two hours on a Saturday morning. Members discuss story suggestions, events, advertising opportunities, workshop offerings and any questions or concerns.

The Stand board member and music columnist Reggie Seigler discusses his music column — A Friendly Five — during a past Behind the Scenes of The Stand workshop.

The Board is searching for someone ready to become an active member, to suggest ideas and represent others in the South Side community. An ideal candidate will also have advertising experience and help boost the project’s ad revenue.

The Stand is a print and online news source covering Syracuse’s South Side. It is written for and by South Side residents. As the voice of the South Side community, the paper aims to start a community conversation by inviting residents of the South Side to share their stories. The paper is the brainchild of The South Side Newspaper Project, a collaboration of the Southside Community Coalition, Syracuse University and a number of dedicated South Side community residents.

If interested, contact The Stand’s Director: or call (315) 882-1054.
