Leadership for activities after covid-19
So I am currently a rising senior and I was supposed to hold several leadership positions for activities starting the new school year. If my activities will be canceled due to the pandemic, will I still be able to include these new leadership positions or no? If not, will this hurt my application?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
On your application, in the case that your activities were canceled, you can put on the application (I would suggest in the COVID-19 section now included) that you were supposed to hold X, Y, and Z title of X, Y, and Z club/organization but was unable to due to COVID. I don't think it will hurt your application because colleges understand that you can't hold these titles due tot he pandemic. They're human beings too and they are living the difficulties that COVID has brought as well. I' sure you'll be fine. Best of luck with this year and hope this helps.
Yes you can include them but if you really want to preserve the impact these activities would have had then you should find a way for your activities to remain active. For example, my Model UN club is working with other schools in our district to try and have a virtual conference. It doesn't have to be as extensive as that though, just make an effort to be a leader and keep the activities running through the pandemic in whatever way you can.
I’m just gonna echo what the others are saying, so if you like this answer give them the credit lol. Basically - yes, you do get credit since you were selected for an officer position, but it also doesn’t count for much since you actually can’t show anything for it. I agree that in some way you need to take initiative to either continue the club virtually or sell organize some sort of events through the club to keep membership active. If it’s not actually through the club, you can still do something outside of it with the members, even if it’s the people in the club you’re friends with and y’all group FaceTime once a week to keep up with club events. You want to show “assumed” or “demonstrated” leadership as opposed to title leadership.
