ABLE E-Board Open Positions & Duties

How to Apply

Below are the open positions on the ABLE Executive Board for Spring 2022. Review each position and description carefully to determine which you feel best suited for. Then submit a copy of your professional resume AND cover letter (one page), along with a short but detailed plan of action for an idea you have in relation to the role you are applying for (on a page following the cover letter). Please submit these to no later than Monday, November 28th. Please format the subject line of your email as Director of Affairs Application for John Smith, sophomore. In your email, also list your availability on 12/2. At that time, the ABLE Executive Board will review your submission and contact you either offering or denying you an interview. Please note that if you interview for one position but the Executive Board feels you fit another position better, we will offer you that position. You will then have the option to accept or deny the position. Interviews will take place on 12/2. If selected for an interview, you will be given a time slot on one of those days and will be asked to confirm within 24 hours. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us or a certain E-Board member.


ABLE has maintained its presence and success over the years due to the continuing dedication and passion of the Executive Board. Joining the ABLE Executive Board is a significant (but worthwhile!) commitment, so please take that into consideration. All of us on E-Board have a genuine love and appreciation for the club and dedicate time to focus on ABLE-related tasks throughout the week. You will be expected to make that same commitment! While we will be making our decisions partially on qualifications, we also are looking for members whom we feel care deeply about the club as a whole. If you are on the fence about applying, you can always reach out. We highly recommend that you take the leap of faith and do it if you are thinking about applying for the Executive Board!
