Summary of executive positions
Executive Vice President:
This position is essentially to be the right hand of the President. You are responsible for ensuring the clerical/administrative duties of the club are met. This includes maintaining records, ensuring deadlines are met, and checking up with VP's to ensure their needs are met and that they meet their responsibilities. This position requires a higher level of commitment than the other VP Positions, however, you get to experience a wider variety of club responsibilities and get to contribute more to the core planning of the direction of the club.
You will be in very close communication with the President as you will fill the gaps wherever the President needs you.
If you are passionate about SUE and have very strong leadership, communications, and time management skills we would love to hear your plans for helping SUE achieve greatness!
