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 Director of Special Projects & Flagship Initiatives do?
The Director of Special Projects & Flagship Initiatives is responsible for overseeing, advising, and mentoring the leaders of SGA's most important initiatives including (but not limited to) Prove It! and Election Night Extravaganza. They will facilitate meetings, set strategies for large scale projects, and develop plans to sustain these initiatives for the foreseeable future.
What are the time commitments for the Director of Special Projects & Flagship Initiatives?
The regular time commitments of the Director of Special Projects & Flagship Initiatives greatly vary. During peak times, the Director should expect an intense workload (ex: November 6th is Election Night Extravaganza, Prove It! election is in the Spring), and a moderate to heavy work load leading up to the implementation of the project itself. However, 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 Director of Special Projects & Flagship Initiatives?
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. This is an excellent venue to work on project management skills, strategic and big-picture thinking, while following through on a project.
