At our school district, all clubs are supposed to have four elected officer positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. As we’re not classified as a sports team (yet!), we elected these four positions for the 2011 season.
Looking ahead to the fall, and 2012, we decided to write a team handbook to help with rules, organization, etc. I’m currently stuck on how the descriptions should read for these four officer positions…
How does your team use these four positions? The team members I’ve discussed this with see it sort of like this:
President - (aka captain) this person is the team leader, both spiritually and organizationally. they are the mouthpiece of the team at meetings, and speak for the team with businesses, administration, etc. their main responsibility to make sure “things get done”.
Vice President - President’s right-hand person. they meet with the sub-team leads, organize data, oversees team meetings, and report back to the captain and team leadership on the status of, well, everything
Treasurer - co-signs the check cutting slips, keeps track of team financials, and helps decide what the team should purchase
Secretary - records team information, schedules team meetings, schedules presentations, corresponds with individuals outside of the team, etc.
VERY interested to see how other teams use these four elected positions. I have read a few other team handbooks looking for this information, and will continue to do so. If I remember, I’ll return to this thread and add in our final descriptions when the 2012 season handbook is complete. Thanks ya’ll!
