As a member of Honors Congress, you have access to leadership opportunities as early as your freshman year.
There are two types of opportunities available: committees and directorships. (Executive Board positions are available to those who have served at least one year as a Director.)
Committee members are extremely valuable to the functioning of Honors Congress.
Committee members assist our Directors by providing new ideas for events and setting up/planning the events. By becoming one, you can meet fellow driven Honors classmates and build lasting relationships!
Typically, there are a total of 9 committees, headed by the respective Director, that can be applied for. Due to COVID-19 however, this semester's committees will be merged into ONE large committee. This large committee will allow you to ineract with your fellow Hon Con members and all the Directors by assisting them with their events.
The application will need ot be submitted on KnightConnect with your resume. Within a few weeks, we will contact those who have passed the initial phase; those who have passed will then be contacted to set up an interview date and time.
Applications for committee positions open at the beginning of every semester and interviews are conducted shortly after. Head over to KnightConnect for more information and the application!
