What Skills Does a Secretary Get Out of the Job?

Being Secretary of the Board is a rewarding role. Not only do you end up understanding a lot about the other roles in a Board, you also learn to effectively handle a large amount of information and think systematically. Next to that, you learn how to work with a large number of different content-creation platforms and have a say in most aspects of organizing conferences and running the Foundation – all this being possible while you are a full time student.
