The Vice President oversees all committee chairs, handles internal board relations, manages event evaluations, and controls risk management plans.

The Secretary takes meeting minutes, maintains the SAB Office, and does all other clerical tasks necessary for smooth board operations.

The Treasurer keeps financial records and publishes them to the student body after the academic year has ended.
