Q- Currently the Secretary is the 5th ranked officer, behind the VPM and VPPR. In view of the increased responsibilities of the Secretary as one of the three Base camp managers, will the Secretary now become the third c club officer?
A- Pathways does not change the club structure.
The club officer rankings in the Club Leadership Handbook indicate who chairs a club meeting, rather than the workload assigned to each club officer.
Each club officer has their own role and job, as part of the bigger team. The secretary has access to the Base Camp manger page so that he or she can support the VPE as needed. This access was provided to the president and secretary because most clubs have these positions and we wanted to ensure the VPE has adequate support.
The Base Camp manager tasks completed by the secretary will vary from club to club. Some clubs may never need the secretary to assist with these tasks. Other clubs will only need this support when the VPE and president are away. There will also be clubs that need the secretary to play a more active Base Camp manager role. This is at the discretion of each individual club.
