The EB is comprised of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Executive Board Committee Members. Next year’s Executive Board Committee Members are selected on the basis of this application and an informal interview by the current EB members. Executive Board Members who have served at least one semester on the EB are then eligible to run for President, VP, or Treasurer. Responsibilities of an Executive Board Committee Member: As a group the EB plans a general schedule of events, and each member will be responsible for leading, or co-leading, at least one of these projects each semester. Project leaders will have the support of the other EB members, but will be responsible for reaching out to the general membership (i.e. non-EB members) to involve additional members in planning aspects of these events. Past projects have included a global health opportunities fair, panel discussions with faculty speakers, meetings with NGO representatives, and fundraisers. Please see www.hughforum.org for a full organization description and a list of recent events. Other responsibilities: • Attend weekly executive board meetings • Attend and help coordinate other events and meetings put on by HUGH Forum. • Help with advertising and publicity efforts for events.
