I understood our secretary's overwhelming stress and I didn't want to exacerbate it, but she had, in turn, put a lot of stress on me. Nearly every task that was given to her she wasn't completing, and I had given her two warnings. Once it reached the third warning, I followed our policy and warned her that she couldn't continue the way she was. As such, she had to make a decision to commit or to leave. She resigned.
On top of this, our VP is studying abroad next quarter and our student liaison is graduating. So two more positions to fill on top of the secretary's.
The following is SPJ's announcement about it:
We’re sad to announce the resignation of our Secretary Anran Lin, who has decided to part with us and focus more on her academic career. Anran wishes us the best and hopes that the person who fills her position will find it as rewarding as she did. That being said, we have an open Secretary position for the rest of the year.
Our Vice President Taylor McAvoy will be studying abroad in Rome for Winter Quarter 2017. To help lighten the load on our President, we are also looking for an interim VP for Winter Quarter.
Our Student Liaison Chetanya Robinson is graduating at the end of this quarter as well! So we’re on the hunt to fill that position for the rest of the year.
