ITS TIME TO START THINKING ABOUT ELECTIONS
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.
