MITA officers change frequently. Every semester there is at least one office leaving, either because of graduation or resigning their position. Since Madison College is a 2-year degree college this makes maintaining club officers a difficult task. That is why every semester we begin probing our membership base for potential officers.
MITA is currently accepting applications for officer positions for the current year!
The president’s position comes with great responsibility and recognition. Being the President of MITA is an opportunity to contribute to the overall development of the club. The club president has to be a strong leader, a visionary, and a friendly face. You are the first contact with the school administration and faculty, while making sure the club abides by the club constitution.
A well-organized and properly operating club should have a properly trained senior vice president who is prepared to administer MITA in the absence of the president. You should work with the president to help them keep the spirit of MITA fun and enjoyable for everyone involved. As vice-president, you are the right hand of the president. You can and should assist the president and other officers with their duties. To do this effectively, you must fully understand the policies and procedures of the club.
The treasurer’s job is in many ways one of the most important jobs in MITA. The club treasurer is responsible for all of a club’s monies, both incoming and outgoing, and needs to keep accurate records to ensure legal compliance. You will be responsible for maintaining the member roster and adding new members. You will work closely with the President and faculty advisors.
The secretary’s position is one of the most important in the functions of the club. One of the first requirements necessary is being thoroughly familiar with the duties of your position and what is expected of you. You must be organized!

The secretary should have knowledge of the Roberts Rules of Order, so that you can assist the president in keeping all meetings smooth and organized. The secretary should also be familiar with the rules and regulations as stated in the constitution and bylaws to quickly locate a needed piece of material.
