Below are position descriptions for each exec position written by the current brothers who hold that position. We will be holding nominations again on Sunday. If you are interested in any of the positions please consider running. Have a great day. 



J Board

Basically what we do is we are  responsible for the website and listserv, having risk management once a semester, upholding the constitution and by-laws, collect grades, assign committees, run elections, go to chapter, go to exec meetings on Mondays, hold office hours (set on our schedule), and conduct the probation report.

Now J Board is a position that has the majority of the work done during the summer and winter vacation and first two weeks of the semester. What we have left to do during the semester is risk management, update brother statuses on the website, elections, and attending chapter, exec meetings, and office hours. What skills you develop as a J Board executive are being able to make difficult decisions in relations to probation/risk management, be flexible and work with people, manage brothers through the website and assign people to committees, and work closely with the president and membership and the other executives.
