LEXINGTON, Ky.

The applications, requirements and other necessary information can be found at www.uksab.org/GetInvolved.

The applications available are for positions on the executive team, promotions team, seven programing committee directors and the director of market research. Executive team positions include president, vice president of internal affairs and vice president of promotions. Promotions team positions include information technology, media, public relations and two graphic designers.

With no prior involvement required, SAB is looking for hard-working, passionate and creative students that want to unite the campus and community by bringing exciting events to campus. Directorship, through programming or the executive team, provides the opportunity to earn internship credit, such as COM 399 and JAT 399.

"My time with SAB has benefited me both personally and professionally,” said President Elizabeth Myers. “I recommend that all students get involved somewhere, and if that place is SAB, they will not regret meeting great people and receiving real world experience".

Applicants are highly encouraged to visit the SAB office before the application deadline. If you have any questions, please email Elizabeth Myers, SAB president, at president@uksab.org.
