Vice President

The Vice President is the secret spice to creating unity within the association. You create synergy within the board and facilitate communication between the board and the EL community. You are also responsible for the strategic growth of the student association together with the President. Your second priority is growing the organization by recruiting new active members and welcoming new passive members. If EL were a deck of cards, you are the joker. You are encouraged to experiment with bigger, revolutionary projects like hosting Polar Bear Dive event or self-development hackathons. 

I have learned that there are amazing people interested in boosting self-development. Throughout the year, I have learned to host several events in EL. The process from turning an idea to a real event is intensive, but you will enjoy the process. If you don’t want the number of hours you put in exceed the projected amount of hours, do not join EL.
