ACT Spring Party & Elections
As the year is wrapping up, it is the exciting time of club elections for new officers! It is a little sad for us “oldies” who will be graduating and not hold an office any more, but it is an exciting time to see all of the younger members move up and become the new officers for next year.
This year I am the President of Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow and I can’t believe that I have already been president for a whole year! It seems like yesterday that I was freaking out trying to schedule rooms for our meetings because I didn’t know you had to do that ahead of time! But the time has come to pass the torch on to new officers.
Every year we have our ACT Elections Meeting and End-of-the-year Party at our former department head Chris Sigurdson’s house where we reflect on the year, elect the new officer team, give awards, and just have some fun at our last meeting of the year.
This year, our meeting was yesterday, Thursday April 21st. The party was such a fun time. We had pizza and dessert, gave awards to several of the members, and also gave gifts to our advisors. Anyone in communications or marketing can appreciate these posters we created for them to hang in their office.
We also had a new addition to the officer team this year. As communicators, we decided it was time for us to revamp our web presence, so we created a Social Media Manager position. How exciting!
The new 2011-2012 ACT Officer Team:
President: Jeanne Gibson
Vice President: Brooklynne Slabaugh
Secretary: Krista Morehouse
Treasurer: Sarah Hann
Historian: Brittany Haltom
Ag Council Representative: Evan Rich
Social Media Manager: Abigail Maurer
It was really special as a senior to see the passion and enthusiasm of all the younger members as they get excited about next year. I am so proud to have been the President for ACT this year and I know they have great plans for the future so I am excited to see how the next year goes!
Good Luck next year Ag Comma’s!!
