Club officers lead club meetings and show leadership by keeping records and order. Each club has a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Additional officer positions may include a Historian, Reporter, Sunshine, Recreation Leader, Health Officer, Greeters, Junior Leaders and Parliamentarian. Always check your club by-laws for specific duties of each office. Remember your club meeting should always have three components: 1 – Business meeting, 2 – Education, and 3 – Recreation.
