Life on the AB Exec Board

For the 2012-2013 academic year, I served as the recruitment chair for Alternative Breaks here at Mason. In this role, I coordinated events for AB recruitment. This included booking kiosks, planning information sessions, and speaking in classes if necessary. I also worked closely with the marketing chair in the hopes of getting the word out about each AB trip. It was very rewarding to see events that I planned become successful. It reassured me that I was doing what needed to be done in my role. I have gotten a lot out of my AB experience on the executive board and will defintely use the skills I learned on other leadership roles I may take on.

With all of this being said, we are currently seeking Alternative Break executive board positions for the 2013-2014 academic year! We hope that one of these positions fits you. Keep in mind that if selected for an executive board position, you will have priority on any AB trips you wish to attend. Being apart of this executive board also serves as a resume booster, why would you turn this down?!
