*The Board is currently taking applications for the Communter Committee Chair and the Spring Fever Week Chair.*

You will have the opportunity to come up with the programming each semester that is specific to your committee. For year-long committees (Commuter, Cross-Cultural,  Music & Arts, Pop-Up Events and Special Events), you will lead your commtitee in coming up with events each semester that are speicific to your commmittee. You will be be in charge of holding committee meetings, managing your event budgets, making purchases for your events with the assistance of the Student Directors, meeting with the Student Directors to update them and delegating planning and event-day roles to your committee members.

The Marketing & Promotions Committee Chair will be in charge of managing the overall promotions and marketing for the Board, including graphics, posters, social media and other creative forms of advertising and promotion. The Marketing & Promotions Committee will also work on "virtual programming initiatives" such as giveaways, sports brackets, contests, etc.
