What is the time commitment to be an Associate in Women in Business? Director?
We want to have ample time to develop our members both personally and professionally, so although we do not require all members to attend all of the Women in Business events and community service event, it is highly suggested. All directors and associates must meet a 10 point requirement every semester. Failure to meet this point requirement will result in a compromised membership. Points are most easily earned by attending meetings. However, other opportunities to earn points will be discussed throughout the semester.
Women in Business usually holds general body meetings once a week. This spring semester, our events will be mostly held on Thursday at 6 p.m. One exception to this are professional events with recruiters or professionals. Professional events will mostly be held around career fair week at various times.
Directors will have a meeting with their respective VP once every two weeks and Associates will have a meeting with their respective Director whenever necessary.
