Do You Make Things Happen? Make More Things Happen on ACE

ACE Board, in concert with the Student Senate and Student Activities & Multicultural Interests, seeks candidates for four chair positions for next year. Applications are due Friday, March 29, 2013.

ACE Board's four chairs lead ACE Board in its objective to develop and support large-scale activites that engage the student body, including touring performers, live concerts, dances, moves, artistic and cultural events, and lively discussions.

The ACE Board Chair is the overall student leader of ACE Board and should be comfortable and experienced with planning large events requiring multiple resources. The Chair facilitates weekly ACE Board meetings, provides support and communicates with fellow ACE Board members. The Chair must guide the planning and execution of dances, concerts, and other events with attention to University policies and procedures.

The Cultural Events Chair focuses on the development and support of events that promote cultural appreciation, nurture understanding of diverse cultural perspectives, and encourage cross-cultural dialogue. The Cultural Events Chair participates in weekly ACE Board meetings and leads a separate cultural events committee. The Cultural Events Chair should be experienced planning events and be dedicated to promoting a variety of events.

The Production Chair coordinates the sound and lighting aspects of ACE Board productions and manages an expensive, Student Senate-owned inventory of sound, lighting, and other event equipment. The Technical Chair must have prior experience operating required sound equipment, must be able to lead a production set-up and take-down crew, and works with professional musicians.

The Marketing Coordinator promotes ACE Board, Student Activities & Multicultural Interests, and their related events with various print and online media. The Marketing Chair must have prior experience designing posters, programs, and using Adobe Creative Suite.
