As the leader of the Student Council, the president is responsible for announcing meetings, preparing the meeting room, having the necessary papers and supplies at each meeting, and conducting the actual meeting. To this end, he or she must: prepare an agenda, call the meeting to order and follow the agenda, lead the discussion, refrain from taking part in the discussion, be able to explain and summarize the discussion, for others, vote only when there is a tie, count votes, and announce vote results to the Council.
The Vice President
The vice president serves as the president's chief assistant and must therefore know the president's job thoroughly and be able to replace him or her in case of absence. The vice president also coordinates committees.
The secretary is responsible for keeping the minutes- a written record of each meeting- including the wording of each motion and number of votes for and against each motion. He or she must also read the minutes from previous meetings, write and respond to any letters pertaining to Council business, and publicize all meetings.
Finally, the treasure is responsible for keeping neat and accurate records of all Student Council money and how that money is spent. The treasurer must keep a record book, work with the school treasurer and/or the
treasurer, prepare budgets and pay bills (with staff assistance), and report on financial matters at each meeting.
