The Student Representative to the Board is the highest student leadership position held at ASID. Attends online ASID Leadership Training Program web events for the SRB position, as well as chapter-hosted leadership training. Attends all professional chapter board meetings as a voting member and acts professionally and responsibly as an active board member. Serves as the liaison between the professional chapter, student chapters and student membership at-large and communicates regularly with all parties to include Student chapter presidents, Student chapter faculty advisors, Student chapter professional liaisons and Student affairs committee chair, and more.
The president attends the ASID Leadership Training Program modules for student chapter presidents; leads the student chapter; runs chapter meetings and events; represents student members; communicates directly with student representative to the board, SAC, and ASID headquarters; works with ASID headquarters to ensure that all chapter members have paid membership dues; delegates responsibilities to chapter board members and committee chairs; oversees strategic planning effort and reports to SRB and SAC.

The secretary keeps records of all meetings and events; works with ASID headquarters to ensure that all chapter members have paid membership dues; coordinates logistics of meetings and events; participates in strategic planning; and submits newly-elected officers’ information to headquarters each term.
The treasurer receives and deposits all chapter funds into the student chapter bank account; prepares the chapter budget and provides financial reports to members; maintains accurate accounts of chapter events; participates in strategic planning.
The faculty advisor is selected by the student chapter board or by the school. While not required to be an ASID member, membership is preferred and is the ideal. The faculty advisor serves as a mentor to the student chapter board, but does not run the chapter, supervise the board, or control chapter funds; promotes student chapter activities to the faculty and administration; suggests chapter programs by introducing industry professionals to students; stays informed of industry trends and issues; assists board with strategic planning; attends meetings and events; and makes himself/herself accessible to chapter board.
Committee chairs are appointed by the board or elected by student members. Committees may include, but are not limited to: hospitality, programs, competitions, publicity, membership, fundraiser, newsletter, and travel. Committees may be added or eliminated as the student chapter board deems necessary.
Be creative and design new positions that may benefit your chapter’s success. Many student chapters have recently added a Social Media Director. Just a thought!
