SAB taking applications for new team leader

The Student Activities Board is seeking out a new team leader on its executive board.

The position open on the executive board is Variety Acts Team Leader. Applications are available for pick-up in the Student Services office and the Student Involvement Center. The applications for VATL are due Friday, Nov. 17 by noon.

To complete the application process, each applicant will be given an interview and from there, the SAB adviser, graduate assistant and president will decide on the new VATL of the executive board.

Glen Poole, a theatre major from Fort Smith and president of the Student Activities Board, said the new VATL “must have high energy, good communication skills and the ability to work well with others.”

Each executive board member of SAB is responsible to conceive, organize and implement at least four activities per semester appropriate to their area of responsibility. The VATL will mainly focus on bringing in quality acts such as magicians, comedians, musicians, slam poets, coffeehouse artists, etc.

The VATL will go through a training process to learn the ropes of how the position works. After training, the VATL is responsible to make sure all contractual obligations for performers are taken care of like staging needs, water, transportation and other items.

Each executive board member is a student worker through the Campus Life office and receives a stipend each month. Because these positions are one of the top paying student worker positions on campus, there are many requirements for the job.

SAB Team Leaders are also responsible for assisting other executive board members with their events during the semester and attending every event on their schedule. Each member has to attend all SAB meetings, work five hours in the SAB office and stay in good academic and disciplinary standing.

“In order to carry out the duties listed above, SAB Team Leaders must have the ability to organize events, promote events and lead a team,” Sallie Forrester, a graduate CSP student from Cookeville, Tennessee and graduate assistant for SAB, said. “This requires enthusiasm, strong time management and dedication.”

Turn in applications to the Student Involvement Center or the Student Services office by noon on Friday, Nov. 17.
