What led you to become an officer for your org? I had previously held a position in my org and wanted to take a higher leadership position.

What have you learned about leadership in your experience as an org officer? I have learned how to look at the bigger picture problems as well as seeing the day to day operations. I have also learned how to communicate with a team of people to keep operations running on a specific time frame.

How have you personally benefited from your experience as an org leader? I learned that I enjoy looking at the bigger picture problems while still making sure that the smaller problems get dealt with. I've learned more about how things on campus are done and the importance of things being done in such a way.

Do you have any tips or advice for future org officers? Make sure that there is an open line of communication between you, your org, and people who are not in your org. This way nothing gets missed or not communicated to everyone that is in your org. Make checking your email a priority so that nothing gets missed.
