AUAB Positions

Anthropology Undergraduate Advisory Board


Chair: Must be a declared anthropology major and a rising senior the fall semester following election. The chair will coordinate events, assign tasks and run meetings, reserve rooms and work closely with the undergraduate chair and anthro faculty. Ideally, this should be a highly organized person who is very familiar with the working of the Anthropology Department and the University as a whole.

Vice-Chair of Communications: The Vice-Chair of Communications will be responsible for updating the UAB web-site, maintaining the anthro research and activities blogs, and working with the Anthro Department on the Department website. This person will handle the UAB listserve and send messages to the majors via email. The Vice-Chair of Communications will ideally be familiar with web-design and upkeep and have time to update the website periodically.

Secretary- The Secretary is responsible for taking minutes at meetings and at events to relay to fellow UAB members or to Anthropology undergraduates. The Secretary is crucial for the smooth running of the AUAB.

Publicist- The Publicist is responsible for publicizing AUAB or Anthropology-related events. The Publicist has the duty of making posters that will interest and engage the Anthropology community at Penn.

Co-Chairs of Events: The Events Co-Chairs are the backbone of the UAB. They contact professors and speakers, set-up and breakdown events, organize refreshments and advertise for all the events.

Financial Liason: Obviously, the Treasurer handles the financial empire of the UAB, balancing the books and procuring funds from the Department. The Treasurer makes sure UAB members are not skimming slush fund arbitrage profits from the UAB treasury.

Members at Large: As the AUAB is regaining momentum and building the Board to be successful in future years, Members at Large will be appointed by the Board to assist in the planning and running of AUAB events. This position is especially designed for rising upperclassmen who intend to be future leaders of the AUAB.
