OP-ED: Welcome to Executive Board Club, Where Everyone Can Be on the Executive Board

Welcome to my prestigious organization, the Executive Board Club. What sets this club apart is that every member can be on the executive board. Not only can you be on the executive board, but it's mandatory in order to be in the club. 

You feel that? It’s your resume being padded. Feels good, right? We know. That’s why we’re offering you one of 40 executive board positions, from Secretary of Internal Operations, Finances, & Technology to Community Outreach & Recycling Chair. All you have to do is sign up!

We hold elections every three days. That way, each member can gain experience in all of our 50 executive posts if they so choose. Even if you don’t win your first-choice position, you’ll automatically be up for 60 others. And with interest booming, we're always creating new positions within the club. Choose from over 70 roles!

Club activities include occasional hangouts, monthly BYOs, and, of course, weekly executive board meetings, at which the current president will detail the goings-on of the club, including and limited to the next round of elections. Our club is fully funded by the University, so your tuition is going to our weekly pizza and caviar whether you like it or not.

We would love for you to join our Executive Board Club. It serves the purpose of any club you will join at Penn without all of those extra commitments. Apply today!
