I was the President of the Marketing Association at Rutgers-Camden for the year of 2011. I developed the first ever President’s Handbook. It was my own volition I chose to do this. I wrote about every experience and what I learned from it. My sole objective was to ensure others had answers before the question was even raised. After my tenure, I dispersed a copy to the rest of the campus. Since 2012, my legacy project has served as the standard by which all other student organizations write their handbooks.
Purpose of this Handbook
Most of us are forced to learn by trial and error. I wrote this book to help you. My goal is to save you time and frustration. I sincerely hope that you create your version of the President's Handbook using these principles and pass it down through each generation of new officers. This book is not just for presidents, it also contains guidelines for officers looking to become president.
If you learn nothing else from this book, please, take this advice: If it is new to you, it will be new to your successor. Write it down and update it as necessary.
