We currently have vacant executive board positions we are looking to fill and are looking for a few good men and women that would like to be a part of the executive board for this great chapter. Do you have the desire to be involved in extracurricular?

This chapter has been and is involved in many charities providing volunteerism, community outreach, literacy, and academics to name a few. We also provide our members with another way to be involved in their school via an on-line environment. How do you want to help others?

Today's job market is ultra-competitive and landing that new job or getting ahead of your old one is not as easy as it used to be. Companies want to see more than just a degree. A leadership position could be that competitive edge you need. Are you a leader?

If you answered yes to these questions please feel free to submit a statement of consideration for an executive board position for Kaplan University's Chapter of the Golden Key International Honour Society. We are currently looking to fill the Finance Chair, Membership/Alumni Chair, and the Editor-In-Chief for The Golden Scholar Newsletter.

These are positions that will end on March 15, 2014 and you must be an active student with Kaplan for that period. If you would like to apply for the vacant positions please do so no later than March 31, 2013. The executive board will make their decisions on or about April 5, 2013. Your submission should include your major, current overall GPA, and why you feel that you would be the best person for the particular position to which you are applying.

There are two ways to be considered for election to any of the positions.  The first is to write a letter of intent with qualifications and why you feel you should be elected to a position.  The second way is to submit a video.  An example of such can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7WT9OILhUw. Please note that there will be no extra weight given for a video submission.
All submissions are to be emailed to KUGKHS@gmail.com
