Student Union Board recognized as best activities board at regional conference

The Student Union Board attended the National Association of Campus Activities South Regional Conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Oct. 5-8 and received the Board of Excellence Award.  

The Student Union Board (SUB) attended the annual National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) South Conference on Oct. 5-8 and was recognized for excellence in the services and events the board provides to campus.

NACA brings together institutions of higher education and the entertainment community in a business partnership that focuses on student and professional development, program planning and creating educational and networking opportunities for students and staff.

The 11 executive board members of SUB, Elon’s largest programming board, were among more than 50 programming boards from eight southeastern states that gathered in Chattanooga. Prior to attending the conference, programming boards were able to submit written applications for awards, with the top being the Board of Excellence (BOE). The BOE recognizes the best activities board in the region. SUB was fortunate to be selected as a BOE finalist and asked to present to a panel of judges in Chattanooga.

The student leaders who presented on behalf of SUB at the conference were President Taylor Stuck ’18 and SUBCinema Chair Brittany Sadler ’19. They highlighted some of SUB’s most successful events at Elon, including our Three-Pack Weekends, hypnotist Tom Deluca, the Homecoming Concert with SGA, movie premieres, Cram Jam and Food Truck Frenzy, to name a few. They also shared many of SUB’s promotional materials, pictures from events, evaluation information and testimonials from students, staff, and past performers.

Elon University’s Student Union Board was recognized as this year’s BOE recipient during the conference closing banquet.   

Receiving this award demonstrates SUB’s strong programming skills and the hard work of the executive board for the benefit of the Elon community, said SUB President Taylor Stuck. The award reflects how well SUB has implemented new events and held strong to traditions in order to keep the student body engaged, Stuck said.
