What do the coordinators do?

Each of the coordinators are responsible for the aspects of planning a SAC event. For example, the Coffeehouse Coordinator, with the assistance of our advisor, is responsible for hiring a performer, reserving a space for the event, setting up the sound system and lights, advertising for the event, and welcoming the performer to UIS! Each coordinator is expected to attend weekly meetings, serve 2 office hours a week and assist with SAC events throughout the semester.
