Jack Appelbaum (COL ’14) has been elected chair of the Student Activities Commission for the spring and fall semesters of 2012. Appelbaum has served on the commission for the previous two semesters, as well as participated in the Student Activities Endowment Commission and is representing SAC for the new Student Group Union.
Here’s Appelbaum’s statement:
I appreciate the support of SAC student groups and am excited to continue working on their behalf. I think SAC has an enormous opportunity next semester to better cater to the larger concerns of our student groups. Hopefully we can make the event approval process more efficient so SAC can focus on other issues at our weekly meetings. I want to improve communication between commissioners and their student groups so the commissioners can be looked to as advisers and supporters of programming rather than an obstacle to overcome in the approval process. By using the authority SAC and its decisions have, we can make progress on helping student groups create the strongest possible programming on campus.
