Chair of Student Organizations
My name is Johnny, and I am extremely honored to be serving as your Student Organization Chair for the 2016-2017 school year. I am an Accounting major with a minor in Supply Chain Management. I served as the President for the USD Student Veteran Organization last year and I was also invited to co-host the 2015-2016 Student Organization Awards. Additionally, I am filling the position of Senator for the School of Business.
Serving as the President for the Student Veteran Organization was an exciting and challenging position. The club grew from 25 to 60 members over a time span of two years. While I was serving as President, my goal was to get to know each member of the organization. Planning regular general body meetings and hosting events for our members was crucial in the success of the club. Through the club we created friendships both on and off campus. While I was President, I realized that the success of the club not only relies on its members and leadership, but also on the support of the Student Organization Committee.
Managing a club can become stressful and challenging. This is why I wanted to serve as the Student Organization Chair. I have been through challenges some of the clubs may face and my goal is to assist and support any organization that requires the committee’s assistance. As the Student Organization Chair, I will make sure the Student Organization Committee is aware of relevant student organization issues. I will also encourage members of the committee to attend at least two General Body Meetings for each of the registered clubs at USD.
I look forward to working with all the clubs and student leadership at USD this upcoming year.
