E-Board Check-Outs

  • President: Danielle
    • No one really knows what it’s like to be on Board until they’re on it. It’s more than just resume booster; it’s a good life experience that puts things in perspective.
    • Full-time job. Don’t take position lightly.
    • Make it known you’re here to listen to membership as a Board Member. Be as approachable as possible.
    • Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  • Vice President: Erin
    • People don’t understand the job unless they’re on E-Board itself. People will argue.
    • One of the best decisions made—a great experience.
    • It takes a little bit of time to figure out the flow, but it eventually gets more intuitive.
    • Board Members should know to take care of themselves first
    • Don’t be afraid to reach out for help.
    • Lend a helping hand if you can.
  • VPSP: Sydney
    • Learn to turn off your phone. E-Board echoes in every part of your life, so take care of yourself.
    • Recognize that people will have a lot to say to you about your own position. Learn how to be your own filter
    • E-Board Members are elected by their peers and are ultimately trusted to represent the interests of the membership to have this position
    • The VPSP and TA positions generally interact most with the membership.
  • Treasurer: Andy
    • The biggest thing is communication. Things will come up, so everyone should use constant communication methods to their advantage.
    • Ask questions.
    • Never be afraid to ask for help. All the E-Board jobs are hard, and everyone has to go above and beyond the constitution in order to make E-Board work.
    • Reach out to people. You never know what’s going on behind closed doors.
    • Treat your E-Board like your family.
  • Secretary: Nathan
    • This is a job about listening, and so it has been an exciting challenge to learn how to gauge the membership and be strategic about the best ways to communicate.
    • Don’t get wrapped up in making mistakes. It’s so easy to apologize and fix it, and worrying about messing up only causes more stress than necessary.
    • Work together. Ask for help. Expect to fail and accept that mistakes are inevitable. It’s okay, because there’s always a solution.
  • TA: Chris
    • It takes a while to learn how to do the job required of an E-Board position.
    • Don’t worry if it’s overwhelming or tough at first.
    • Because there are two previous Board members on the current team, some growing pains can be alleviated.
    • People can never make everyone happy, but what’s important is that they do their best.
    • Listen to each other. Ask questions. Reach out to old Board Members for help.
  • Steve
    • It’s been a pleasure to work with everyone. Excited to work with the new team.
