As we reach the end of the 2014-2015 fiscal year, we are accepting applications for the next year’s YEP board members. To get a firsthand description of each position, current board members share their experiences.
Pro: In addition to getting to know and work closely with the other board members, there is also the opportunity to meet a lot more people in the community. Being on the board, you attend more events and you welcome members and guests to the events therefore being in a more social position.
Con: This is not really a con, but I was not prepared to have to front some costs. Everything is reimbursed with the treasurer, but the first event I had to do some purchasing I was not prepared for. Another board member fronted the cost then. However, a pro to this “con” is getting to go shopping knowing you’re getting the money back! It was especially fun getting to buy the supplies for the holiday party.
