Ad Club Board Positions 2018

Want to be a leader in Ad Club? Is the possibility of creating fun, professional development programs for students something that excites you? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Executive board positions: President, Vice President of Operations, Director of Events, Director of Communication, Director of Membership

Creative team positions: Creative Director, Webmaster

How to apply: Ad Club positions are appointed by the faculty advisor and current Ad Club president every November. Eligible candidates are individually interviewed and selected based on the following criteria: Interest level, skill set, availability, and duration of Ad Club membership.

Things you should know:

  • Our terms run with the calendar-year, so January through December.
  • All executive board officers are required to attend every board meeting, (Meetings are optional for the creative team.) Meetings occur about every two weeks. Scheduling tends to be flexible to accommodate everyone, but the most common times are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. If a board member misses two board meetings, they must resign from their position, so please be active and courteous.
  • Executive board positions have voting rights on treasury matters and club constitutional amendments. Creative team members do not.
  • Ad Club general meetings are usually on Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m. because that’s when Ad/PR students are usually on campus. So please avoid scheduling a class at 4:30 p.m. if you plan on running for the executive board. Our agency tours are typically on Fridays, since there are no Ad/PR classes on Fridays.
