Law Organizations: Officer Information

Officer Transitions

One of the most important things that you can do as a leader is make sure to transition leadership of the organization well. This ensures the longevity of the Student Organization.

The Basics:

  1. Introduce new officers to the faculty advisor and make sure that the faculty advisor has the contact information for each new officer.
  2. Provide Assistant Dean Molly Brummond with the contact information of each new officer.
  3. If your organization is a Registered Student Organization, connect the new officers with Student Involvement for a training session.
  4. Give access and instructions to any online platforms, I.e. social media accounts, website/blog, online document storage, national affiliation website login information/passwords.
  5. Help the new officers become familiar with this webpage!
  6. Explain the budgeting and reimbursement processes.
  7. Explain the event planning process and expectations.

Pass along your wisdom!

You may not see it as "wisdom", but being in a position for a year is invaluable! You have learned important things along the way that can help the next leaders of your student organization. Think: what would you have liked to know when you took office?

  1. Using the hindsight that you now have, identify the areas of responsibility for each office, details, phone numbers, etc. that you wish someone had shared with you when you took office.
  2. Review the organization’s constitution, by-laws, written materials, and goals. Outline any areas that need attention or revision.
  3. Tips for running an effective meeting.
  4. Ideas for improvement: What do you wish you had done differently?
  5. Prepare an end-of-year report incorporating the organization’s goals, activities, and accomplishments.
  6. Recruitment of new members – ideas? Tips?
  7. Fundraising ideas/projects.
