Training

Training for SAB happens before the beginning of the academic year. Training is essential for SAB members because it addresses all of the skills, tools, and mediums of being successful in programming at PLU. Training covers all of the following: organizational structure, year plan, descriptions of HUMP and Late Night Programming, organizational programs (Orientation, Involvement Fair, Homecoming, LollaPLUza), 25Live Training, CAVE Training, IMPACT and Marketing and Communication Applications, Website overview, the Kennel, tour of different used spaces and supplies.

Appropriations

Spring of 2016, ASPLU’s club and organization’s appropriations fund was moved to SAB with the hope of encouraging a strong lasting relationship between clubs and organizations that financially and structurally supports clubs and organizations programming. With appropriations in SAB, the hope is that we will see an increase in club programming and student interaction.

All Staff Meetings occur weekly for all members of SAB to insure that programming is on track and scheduled. During this time programmers share their current position in their planning process related to their position oriented program as well as where they sit in their preparations for either HUMP or Late Night Programming. These are also times where the planning for Organizational Events occur.

One- On-One Meetings are an opportunity for programmers to sit with the SAB Director and talk about their positions, programs, and any other concerns. This is also an opportunity for continued relationship development and mentorship. Depending on the situation or need for a one-on-one meeting the Assistant Directors may or may not be present.

The SAB Director should also be meeting One-On-One with the Assistant Director of Public Relations and the Assistant Director of Venues, ensuring that each member of SAB is informing the Director as well as ensuring that any issues which arise can be brought to the right person.

The End of Year Debrief is an essential part of preparing the next year of SAB members. During the debrief the highs and lows of the year are addressed, the organization addresses what worked well and what did not work well in all aspects of programming including group dynamics, organizational structure, personal experiences, program numbers, etc.

This is also an opportunity for assessment of budgeting, management, program attendances and profits (where applicable), as well as assessment of programs run. The goal is to look at any swipe reports, surveys, and student responses to programming that has happened throughout the year, and learn from those numbers and responses.
