Roles and Responsibilities

Here's a quick overview of the 7 elected VPC offices, and officer roles. This is covered in more detail in the bylaws of the VPC.

Sets up winter pool sessions and recruits volunteers to staff them. Plans entertainment for club meetings. Engages in occasional community outreach (youth, UVM, conservation e.g. Green Up Day, etc.). Succeeds the president in the event the president can no longer fulfill his or her duties.
