"I really found my place at OHIO when I joined the Student Alumni Board. Being involved in SAB has given me so many opportunities both on and off of campus. This organization has given me the professional skills I need in order to succeed after graduation, while also giving me some of my best friends and helping me fall even more in love with Ohio University."
What is the Membership Committee?
The Membership committee spends a great deal of time working with the new members to make sure they understand the true meaning of SAB and its purpose. We work hard to make sure we accept the people who we think will benefit most from being part of SAB. Getting to know the new members by working alongside them is one of the best parts of being on this committee, and we are able to make such strong connections with the members. While most other committees are a semester-long commitment for members, Membership is a year long commitment with an application process.
Open Houses are held early in the spring and fall semesters, and invite possible new members to see what SAB and its committees are all about. Prospective new members are then directed to fill out our online application.
Interviews are held shortly after Open House by the Membership and Exec Committees to look at our possible new members and learn more about them before we decide who will be accepted.
The New Member Process takes place throughout fall and spring semesters. Once the new members are accepted, the membership committee holds weekly meetings to go over what SAB is about in detail as well as what is expected of them as members.
Inductions are held at the end of every fall and spring semester. A full ceremony takes place to induct our newest members and officially make them part of our family.
Senior Send-Off is a celebration held just before graduation to say goodbye to our seniors and honor them.
