One of the mandates presidents and project managers have in common, regardless of what organizationthey belong to, is the distribution of the workload amongst different members. Sharing those tasks is important because it makes it possible to achieve ambitious projects, it helps stimulate creativity (many people focus on a single problem), and it makes sure that projects are not relying on a single person (who could fall sick, go on vacation, change jobs...). But here's a way of looking at task distributions differently : What if the sense of community within your club depended on the way you appointed tasks? The goal of community building is critical as it increases engagement in the community through fostering a sense of belonging; members who feel part of a community often engage in it with more ease. Beyond relationships between people in your club, which is often the prime factor in whether or not a member will feel part of a community, the way to distribute tasks amongst the different members can impact their sense of belonging.
