CO-DIRECTOR: JACOB KRAFTResponsible for preparing meetings as well as delegating various tasks across the board. For board meetings, I prepare a general agenda of topics to be discussed, and for general meetings for all members I create the power points. I serve as the main contact between the board and members through emails and texts as well. If any other board members need help I will also step in to help out.
SITE-COORDINATOR: GWYNETH DIXONResponsible for researching and planning ASB trips every semester. Towards the beginning of each semester I compile a list of possible trips including the trip’s focus, location, fees, and other relevant information which I then present to the rest of the board. After we vote on which trips to send, I secure housing for the trip and maintain contact with both the host organization and housing to make sure everything goes according to plan.
PUBLIC RELATIONS: LILLY ONDERA
Responsible for advertising ASB events, meetings, applications, and trips to the public; designing and creating digital and paper advertisements; social media outreach; etc. During the summer before the start of the Fall semester, I am also in charge of designing and ordering merchandise for Quad Day. I choose the type of product, send in the designs, and order the final products thus making sure they are shipped on time and ready for Quad Day.
TREASURER: DIAMOND RUFFIN
Responsible for budgeting, making payments, reimbursements, fundraising, and training trip treasurers. Anything money related, I take care of. I make a budget for all trips each year and adjust it as necessary. I handle all of the participant trip payments and reimbursements as they come up. I’m also in charge of the Maria Somma Scholarship. Additionally, I coordinate all of the fundraisers for ASB.

Overall, we take care of all things related to the leadership skill development of the trip facilitators, and fostering camaraderie within each service trip group.
