All of the SPB committees are essential in ensuring the highest level of entertainment for Oakland University students...that means YOU!!Structure and Operations Student Program Board is made up of seven committees. These committees include both programming and support committees (to be discussed shortly). In addition, there is the Chairperson of the Student Program Board who oversees the seven committees and an Associate Chair who is the right-hand man (or woman) to the Chairperson. The Chairperson is appointed by the President and Vice President of Student Congress. The Chair will then interview and appoint the seven committee chairs and Associate Chair that make up the Executive Board. So... Where do you come in? This is where YOU come in... SPB's success is directly tied to the many students who volunteer their time and effort to making great programming. Each of the six committees needs volunteers to aid in formulating new ideas and putting these ideas into action, however, we understand that not everyone who wants to help out (or be part of a great organization) can make it to every meeting and every event. Everyone is welcome to join and we only ask that you give us as much (or as little) time as you want!
