The role o the Vice President is simple yet important. Being the President’s right hand, it is your job to ensure thecooperation and unctioning o Student Council. It is also your role to be the ‘all-around’ character on the council,assisting with any tasks that may require assistance. I the President is unable to attend scheduled meetings, then asthe Vice President, you are expected to be inormed and prepared to host the meeting on behal o the President. Thissame concept applies to other meetings that may occur outside o Student Council, such as YRPC. I the Presidentis having a dicult time with the behind-the-scenes administration aspect o his role, the Vice President needs to beon top o things and assist in giving the President an easier time. You ultimately have the same responsibilities as thePresident, and should work to ensure the smooth operations o council.

This position asks you to be everything you expect a secretary to be and more. Ultimately, you’re responsible orrecording every decision the Council makes in weekly ‘minutes’ and orwarding those notes to all members, teacheradvisors and administration in a prompt manner. The Secretary aims to be the component that keeps operationsrunning as smoothly and eciently as possible. To achieve this, you must be organized, knowledgeable, and haveimpeccable note taking skills (this means you’re a ast writer, a good listener, and can keep inormation clear andconcise). You’re the one who thinks o the little details others missed out on, the one who is prepared or every pos-sible outcome, the one with Plan B (and C and D and E and … you get the idea). You must be a quick thinker and aast learner, unaraid to voice your opinions. You must be consistent, practical, and ecient. Essentially, you’re theone who thinks o all the questions, but oten, you’re also the one with all the answers.
