Yesterday ASM Chair Brandon Williams appointed me his Chief of Staff. [Press Release found here] I am honored Chair Williams chose me for this position and I’m excited for this new opportunity to serve the students of UW Madison. My time spent as Vice Chair of ASM during the 16th session allowed me to learn the many intricacies of ASM and the University. Additionally, I was able to meet many people and have since gained many friends, colleagues, and contacts across the university and the state. I hope to utilize this network of people to further the initiatives of ASM.
Where I feel my main task will be to assist and advise Chair Williams in his day to day work, I want to expand this mentality to Student Council and Coordinating Council. I hope to serve as an extension of the Chair to make sure tasks don’t get left behind or forgotten. A prime example of this was when I was in the office yesterday doing paperwork and helping Chair Williams with some scheduling when a student walked in and wanted to talk about a campaign idea. Chair Williams had to run to a meeting but I was available to talk with him to make sure his opinions were heard. From there I followed up with Chair Williams. I feel this is a perfect example of what some of my work will entail.
Once again, I am excited to serve and look forward to a successful term in ASM. The chairs of the committees are all great leaders and I do not believe ASM has ever had a better, more cohesive team as dedicated and experienced as our current leadership. On top of that we have two exceptional leaders with an abundant amount of experience, knowledge, and skill in the Chair/Vice Chair office facilitating and working with this great team. A team I am proud to call myself the newest member of.
