He/she should be the primary arbiter of meetings, main representative to the SA and other Student Organizations, and make him/herself available to the other executive board members. As per SA guidelines, the President must take the Treasurer’s exam, and is thus equipped to advise on such matters in the Treasurer’s absence. The President is intended to be a “jack of all trades”, assisting each of the other executive board members in their duties and responsibilities as necessary. The President should also encourage members of Student Volunteer Center to involve themselves in both events and in proposing new ideas and initiatives for Student Volunteer Center. The President is the final authority in Student Volunteer Center on all decisions. Vice President The Vice President will work very closely with the President, aiding in getting feedback from the Executive Board and members throughout the semester. He/she will also work with the President to plan ceremonies for members and the annual clothing drive during the spring semester.

The Secretary is tasked with recording minutes at each Executive Board meeting, distributing them to the Executive Board, and monitoring the SVC email account. Halfway through the semester, the secretary will send an email to all volunteers informing them of their hours completed to date and reminding them of the 10-hour minimum.

If the Event Coordinator Manager feels it is needed then he/she should attend at least one event that each Event Coordinator plans to make sure the event runs smoothly. He/she will take the lead in planning larger events with the help of the President and Vice President. Event Coordinator Committee Event Coordinators are responsible for planning, organizing, and executing a minimum of three volunteer events and/or programs each semester. Events are designed to engage SVC members in meaningful volunteer work. To accomplish this task, Event Coordinators will speak with outside or on campus organizations, and engage in extensive dialogue with other Executive Board members. Event Coordinators are also encouraged to document events and programs through pictures and/or video recording whenever possible. They must also take attendance at the events. After the event, the Event Coordinators will send in attendance, hours, description, and organization contact information to the Secretary and pictures and description to the Newsletter Editor and Historian within one day.
