This is a great way to talk to Kendra out how to get SAB involved in your events.

FYI- we will be holding a meeting Sunday March 6. This is the Sunday after spring break! Please do what you can to make it!


Please start considering if you would like to run.

Also note we will be holding Member-at-large elections in the spring to allow the MAL more time to acclimate to their position and more time in the fall to offer their services to the board.

Sunday March 13- Nominations

Sunday March 20- Nominations Confirmed

Friday March 31 at NOON- Applications are due (you will have 2 weeks to complete and submit)

Sunday April 3- Executive Board Elections

Sunday April 10- Member at Large Elections and Transitions

Disclaimer: If you are considering running for any position please talk to an executive member, Justin, Katrina, or Kendra about the position! Just because the executive board is primarily made of juniors does not mean the current VPs are re-running. If they choose to re-run they also have to be elected, they are not guaranteed their position for next year.

Find updated points, finance records, and shared documents here.

Night of networking- Put on by the OUAA for students. The event is surrounding the carer fair and will feature bobcat recruiters who are in attendance at the career fair. Please consider registering!
