Conference Advisory Board (CAB)
The Conference Advisory Board (CAB) is an inspired, insightful and committed group of collegiate members of Mortar Board.
The National Office invites CAB to assist in the planning and execution of the national conference. CAB members are eager to meet the newest Mortar Board class and guide new presidents as they navigate the conference and prepare to lead their chapters in the next academic year.
What does CAB do?
A productive and valued member of the CAB will:
1. attend monthly virtual meetings of the CAB
2. work productively in between meetings to complete assignments and follow up on action items
3. apply their knowledge of chapter operations in developing programming for the conference
4. apply their experiences with Mortar Board and/or at the national conference in developing effective programming
5. work to develop learning outcomes for the conference and apply programming accordingly
6. help acquire/select presenters and sessions
7. work collaboratively with other members of the CAB and staff
8. be an ambassador for Mortar Board and the conference to chapters, advisors, and collegiate members.
CAB members will attend the national conference to oversee the event. Travel and accommodations will be covered by the National Office for in-person conferences.
