Here are some things you need to know before applying!
We ask that only serious applicants apply
It is important to know that the SAB serves the FIT campus as a professional extension of the Department of Student Life; not a student club. With that comes a higher level of expectation, performance and responsibility. A role on the SAB is very much considered a job - similar to a hands-on full time internship. Consider this position a professional employment opportunity that will provide in-depth training and development in large scale event production.
Prior to submitting, we do ask you honestly assess your schedule, course work amount and level of commitment for the FALL 2020 semester.
Serving on the SAB is an educational and rewarding experience but it is also a prominent and time consuming role on campus. As a full time student advocate, the responsibility with any SAB role is great however, the hard work is always worth it when students walk away with a positive experience you produced.
You must attend an SAB Info Session
Prior to submitting an application, it is mandatory to attend an SAB Info Session. Given present times, Info Sessions will be hosted in a webinar format via Zoom. Dates/Times are advertised on our EVENT PAGE and FITLink - prior RSVP is required. Make sure to download the CORQ appto be informed of all updates and announcements.
You can only serve on the SAB
Due to conflicting training schedules and the amount of dedication needed to serve the SAB effectively, members cannot serve in any other campus leadership roles. These roles include : Resident Assistant, Orientation Leader, any club executive board position, Editor In Chief of any publication.
Members are permitted to serve as club members should they chose to do so.
We run on a Spring to Fall Schedule
We are currently seeking to fill vacant positions for Fall 2020 Only however beginning in Spring 2021, the SAB will run on a Spring to Fall schedule.
Switching from Spring to Fall has many benefits. This change was made in an effort to allow the SAB a better opportunity to prepare and execute both small and large events for the next semester.
This will give us space to:
Utilize calmer months to better focus and prepare event details
Allow events to be produced further in advance ie. Orientation, Weeks of Welcome, Weeks/Months of Celebration
Allow current members to prepare & fully participate/present in national programming conventions.
Allow for more member to member mentorship.
Provide SAB members a better school/work/life balance.
