We're hoping to answer some of your questions about the changes to the SGA Executive Branch through a series of myUMBC posts. Don't forget to apply at sga.umbc.edu/apply by Friday, August 17th at 5pm!
What does the Coordinator of Public Relations do?
The Coordinator of Public Relations is responsible for all outside communications on behalf of the organizations. This includes working with The Retriever to publicize statements from SGA, create a weekly newsletter, and post SGA updates to myUMBC.
What are the time commitments for the Coordinator of Public Relations?
The Coordinator of Public Relations has the opportunity to make their own schedules. The expectation is that The Coordinator of Public Relations members are working on SGA related activities 3 - 7 hours per week. The Coordinator of Public Relations members are required to attend meetings of the Department of Communications (meeting time will be determined at a later time). Note that some weeks may be more involved than others. Your SGA work should not get in the way of self-care time and studying for your classes - you come first!
What do you get in return as the Coordinator of Public Relations?
This is the perfect opportunity to make your mark on the UMBC community, and work with students, faculty, staff, and administrators to make meaningful change for years to come. Build your portfolio and apply your skills to a real experience. The Coordinator of Public Relations is also paid an annual stipend.
