The Student Activities Board uses a committee system to plan, advertise and implement events for the entire campus and has five standing committees to which students can become members. Each committee (see below for descriptions) is responsible for a specific area of programming and is the basis of SAB's overall programming.
Students are highly encouraged to join committees and attend committee meetings in order to share their ideas and input in planning and implementation of programs. Committee members participate in the programming process from beginning to end, from idea inception to event set-up, working the event, and breaking down the event. By participating on committees, students are ensuring that SAB is meeting the needs of the entire student population and that your voice is heard.

The committee is chosen by the Student Government Association, but students are welcome to attend meetings as well as a volunteer throughout the year.
