The Role of the Secretary
Two of the officer roles in associations parallel professions that exist throughout our society: the secretary (or clerk) and the treasurer (or financial manager). For this reason, the role of the secretary in the world of associations can become confusing. There are even some who claim that these association roles are obsolete and that having a paid staff means there’s no reason for a member to have those titles. But nothing could be further from the truth.
What’s a Snippet?
Snippets are single page articles that explain some aspect of leadership, meetings or parliamentary procedure. New Snippets are released on the first day of every month on the Snippet page at www.agreatmeeting.com. After a month they are placed in the Snippet Niche for future reference.
