Executive Transfer 2014

January 18th, 2014

In effort to facilitate the transfer of executive duties to the incoming 2014/2015 executive to be elected in our March annual general membership meeting, we offer members interested in joining the 2014/2015 executive the opportunity to engage with the current executive to become more familiar with the positions they would potential take on following being elected. This initiative is in effort to overcome prior difficulties the incoming executives have faced in terms of confidently understanding and fulfilling their duties.

We’ve provided a list of each executive officer’s duties. Please read them over them over to see if you feel a particular position suits your interests and skill sets. After making your decision, contact us at to inform us of your interest. We will invite you to attend our upcoming executive meeting in February. Please follow the *Executive Transfer* page link on your top left menu for the details of each executive position’s responsibilities.
