4.  Position description:  
As the President of the Omicron Beta Chapter, it is my duty to preside over all official chapter functions.  This includes all campus, community, regional, and international events.  In addition, I represent the chapter on campus and in the community.  It is my responsibility to assist all officers in their duties, and to make sure we are working as a team while continuing to move our chapter forward.  I am dually responsible for equally supporting the College Project and Honors in Action project, our two major projects during the year.  I oversee all chapter progress, and report to the Phi Theta Kappa International Office on our journey to become a Five Star Chapter, the highest ranking a chapter can achieve.  Overall, it is my ultimate responsibility to lead the Omicron Beta Chapter through another incredibly successful year!
 
5.     What are your goals for Phi Theta Kappa? 

My ultimate goal is to help our chapter's officers and members grow as student leaders.  It is also very important to me that the officers and members of our chapter meet their personal goals, and it is my mission to be at their side whenever needed.  We have been handed down a chapter legacy of great success and standing within the college and community, and I take personal responsibility to make sure everything we do on and off campus is upholding of that legacy.  This includes being a big part of our College Project and Honors in Action project, where we find a need on campus and in the community and work to address those needs.  It is very important to the chapter that we continue to recruit the brightest, most dedicated students on both of our campuses, and show them the benefits of joining Phi Theta Kappa.  Finally, through the success of our projects and the growth of our members and our chapter, it is our goal to remain one of the top chapters in the world!
