Being on the RGB is a very rewarding leadership experience. The RGB’s purpose in New Frontier is to collaborate with the Regional Executive Board in working on a variety of activities including but not limited to writing programs, working with the regional SA/TO on this year’s initiative, leading religious services, and leading icebreakers. RGB is a perfect way to transition into leadership on the regional level.
While being on RGB is a valuable and gratifying experience, it is important to keep in mind that it will require a time commitment. As an RGB officer it is expected that you always strive to do your best work, attend chapter and regional events, and work with your regional counterpart. RGB officers are also expected to represent the region as responsible and engaged role models. Remember that all applications will be carefully considered to ensure that we have as successful a year as possible. Can’t wait to see all of the amazing things we achieve this year!
