  • compiling documents for travel-related meetings.  

The Aide may also be asked to take meeting minutes; draft, and/or proof-read and edit memos and other routine documents for the Director; read and summarize materials to keep the Director informed of pertinent events and information; and other duties as assigned to carry out the mission of CRFS and the Kellogg Chair.
