Want to be a Math Club officer?

Next semester is coming up, which means it’s time for math club officer elections. A few of us will be stepping down. Many of us are leaving Princeton in June. :(

If you’re interested in joining the board, please let me know. We’ll be having elections toward the end of January. The positions that will need to be filled are:

President. The President oversees other officers’ projects and provides overall leadership. This involves coming up with ideas for new programs, making administrative decisions for the Club (which officer should be given responsibility for a new project, etc.), and things like that. (Somehow, this also involves sending out lots of emails. :D)

Academic Chair. The Academic Chair is responsible for all things academic. In practice, this mostly means running the Undergraduate Colloquium lecture series (with help from an assistant, usually) and managing the Club’s Guide for Math Students.

Advising Chair. The Advising Chair is responsible for the Club’s advising activities. These include Mentoring Mobius, a “family-style” advising program, a handful of Q&A sessions throughout the year (like the January one on REUs), and the Meet Your Professors lunch/dinner series.

Social Chair: The Social Chair is in charge of the club’s social events. These are varied, but include: (1) Board Game Nights; (2) Math Movie Nights; (3) Pi Day; and (4) the annual Club Banquet. (Sometimes, the social chair writes emails in multiple colors and includes pictures.)

Treasurer: The Treasurer manages the club’s finances. Principally, this involves dealing with our accounts with the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students (ODUS) and the department itself. S/he is in charge of getting reimbursements through these accounts, depositing checks into them, and so on.

Webmaster. The Webmaster manages our website. (this is an appointed position)

If you’ve enjoyed math club events and want to take part in organizing these things, running for a position is a great way to do it. (I’ve had a lot of fun this year serving the undergraduate math community. I’m really glad I got the chance to meet many of you through the math club!)

If you have any questions about any of these positions, please let me know. If there are things you’d like to do for the math club that don’t fall under the positions listed above, I’d be happy to discuss that as well.

Have a great final week of classes!
