Student Board members have incredible opportunities
- Improve your leadership, organizational, event planning, and communication skills

In addition all Student Board members are expected to uphold the following responsibilities:

Being a part of the Student Board is an opportunity for students to develop professional networks and leadership skills, and to experience working with the non-profit sector. Student Board members receive training in marketing, fundraising, public speaking, event management, and strategic planning, and practice these skills in many ways during their year-long term.
