President: As the chapter’s executive administrator, the president is responsible for all chapter operations and conducts the council and chapter meetings. The president delegates duties to other officers and appoints committee managers with advice and consent of the council. Serving as president to the STC San Diego, you’ll get an opportunity to polish up your leadership skills.
Vice President of Programs: The Vice President of Programs surveys our membership to learn what topics they’re interested in, then finds and schedules speakers that match those topics, arranging all the details of each speaker’s visit, publicizing the meetings, and conducting the program portion of the monthly meetings.
Vice President of Membership: The Vice President of Membership plans and oversees any member recruiting programs, issues information about STC San Diego and STC to prospective members, monitors the chapter membership roster, provides the council with regular membership data updates, and is responsible for welcoming new members and answering their questions.
Secretary: The secretary compiles and distributes the agenda for the council meetings, records council meeting minutes, and keeps the meetings on track. In addition, the secretary maintains all nonfinancial records for the current year and writes any chapter correspondence not specifically assigned to another officer or committee manager.
Treasurer: As the fiscal officer of the chapter, the treasurer is responsible for maintaining records of chapter financial accounts, issuing payments (as instructed by the council) to satisfy chapter financial obligations, collecting money at chapter meetings, and preparing the annual budget and financial report.
Assistant Treasurer: The Assistant Treasurer supports the Treasurer with all chapter financial duties, acts as backup signer on the chapter checking account, and attends council meetings when the treasurer is unable to do so.
Nominating Committee: The nominating committee is responsible for finding qualified candidates for chapter office and for conduct of the annual election. Nominating committee members should be actively involved with the chapter. Normally, we elect two members each year, and for a two year term. The nominating committee is active for only a few months each year and is the position many members use to “get their feet wet” in chapter leadership.
