a.k.a. Coach & Cheerleader
You function as the team’s coach and cheerleader. Make sure your team has the information and support they need to succeed
Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things. Opportunities will arise, you don’t have to do them all and you don’t want to get overwhelmed, that said try and do as many as possible it really pushes the club forward.
Choose a key tenet or idea to drive your decision making. One of our goals was to be the group anyone on campus thinks about when they need to improve their speaking. To that end we tried to pursue any opportunities that got our name out like speaking to classes or at staff events.
Try to never cancel meetings. Even when we have not held meetings due to holidays we would try and do a group lunch. Having that consistency lets members know they can always count on a meeting be held.
Have fun! It is a lot of work but you learn and grow a ton. Everyone is supporting you and wants you to succeed so don’t be afraid to ask for advice or help from people.
