Okay..Just a question:

How do you guys become "president" or executive members in these clubs?

At my high school they dont really have ranks..just members.

how can you just have members? there's gotta be someone who's leading. i mean a student body not teacher.
At my school, it depends on how dedicated you are with the club. at the end of the year, we apply/elect/interview for executive positions.

some teachers appointed me after I took over all the president and exec functions such as budgeting, spending, member attendance, money collection, event coordination, etc etc and some there was application and process by the previous pres and execs

Yeah we just have teachers leading... would it really matter if I just write Executive or president (if I know I play a good part in the club, or pretty much am the most contributing member - although we dont really have any ranks). I guess it won't hurt anyone - it's not like the unis go after this that much.

oh wow. i had no idea. at our school, it's more like if you're interested in starting up a club, get a couple friends who want to do the same thing and find a teacher who's willing to supervise and that's it. club started. our school has pretty much every single kind of club there is. if there isn't one, we make one. and it's usually the students who are passionate about a specific topic/issue. teachers are just suppose to be there to supervise, not run. i just think it should be more student based.

talk to the teacher running the club and see if you could get them to give you a title if you contribute so much to the club. it gives you a little more recognition and legitimacy, especially if universities are going to call up your references.
