About CAB

The Hamilton College Campus Activities Board (CAB) is a student-run organization dedicated to bringing quality programming, including concerts, comedians, movies, and other special events to the Hill.

CAB is made up of two student boards -- the Executive and General, otherwise known as the E-Board and G-Board.


Executive Board

The CAB Executive Board, or E-Board, consists of all leadership positions and events coordinators.  The E-Board is responsible for organizing meetings with the G-Board, assisting coordinators at events, providing input on upcoming CAB events, and representing CAB at all their events.  Various E-Board members will help one another run ticket sales and concert, comedy or movie events so that the Hamilton community can enjoy their time at every CAB event.


General Board

The CAB General Board, or G-Board, supports the Executive Board by attending meetings, assisting at events and providing input on upcoming CAB events. G-Board meetings are open to all Hamilton students and are held every other Wednesday at 9 p.m. in the Sadove Conference Room.

To become an official member, students are required to attend three consecutive G-Board meetings and assist three different event coordinators at their events.  In addition they are expected to help distribute publicity material.
