All Thespian troupe officers must be officially inducted members of the International Thespian Society. Students who apply to be an officer will be elected by our current Thespians in the spring. Officers should be ready to serve once the seniors graduate in May.
Officer positions include president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.
Our Thespian officers will be considered as our Thespian Board of Directors for Troupe #5006. These officers will meet once a month in late May, August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March, and April. These meetings will be used to plan to run a theatre meeting/activity each month. Such activities include the Thespian Kickoff in August, Thespian meetings during Advisory, the Winter Party, and the Thespian Celebration.
The Thespian Board is also expected to review our troupe constitution, bylaws and core values. Troupe bylaws often include such things as rules of order for troupe meetings, elections, induction ceremonies, and traditions. These bylaws help our troupe document and communicate important details to everyone involved and provide continuity from year to year as officers change.
