BYUSA Campus Activities is creating four committees with positions available on each committee and four program director positions to lead each of those committees.
The four committees are: Athletics Activities, Student Service, Friday Night Activity and Spring Fling. A meeting for all those interested in being a program director for any of the four committees will be today at 5 p.m. in the Varsity Theater.
According to the Athletics Activities committee application, this committee is “responsible for choosing and planning awesome social activities for the students after … athletic events.” Craig Coleby, executive director for BYUSA Campus Activities clarified this statement: “For example, after a men’s basketball game there could be a slam dunk contest. The activity doesn’t always have to be a dance,” he said.
Anyone interested in joining this committee and helping with activities after athletic events, may attend a meeting this Friday in 3380 ELWC at 4:15 p.m.
The Student Service committee is a new committee. Its job is to solicit “discounts from businesses off campus that students would like to go to but can’t afford to on a student’s budget,” said Karen Duffin, BYUSA public relations director.
“Only three or four positions are available on this committee,” Coleby said.
Students interested should attend the meeting today at 5 p.m. in the Varsity Theater.
“Any student applying to be the program director of this committee needs to be a public relations major or be experienced in the public relations field,” he said.
The Friday Night Activity committee will meet the first time Oct. 24, at 4 p.m. in 3380 ELWC. Students interested in this committee must attend. The Friday Night Activity that the committee will plan and run is Jan. 16, 1998.
The Spring Fling committee will not meet until January. Spring Fling is not scheduled until April 14, the night before the first reading day. Traditionally, Spring Fling has been one of the largest activities sponsored by BYUSA.
Coleby said each program director will attend a 10-week training course one night a week.
“Our goal is to make sure that program directors get trained and get what they need and have the confidence to do their programs,” he said. “A lot of training will be on Christ-centered leadership.”
Program directors and committee members are volunteers who receive no monetary compensation for their service. BYUSA relies heavily on the efforts of dedicated volunteers.
