Run as a Council Member

Executives hold vital roles in our community, spearheading their team to complete their projects. Because of this, executives typically commit 10+ hrs/week. Executives are elected by the student body in the spring elections and nominations reopen for any open positions in the fall. You can scroll down below to learn more about the opening year representative position.

The executive positions for the 2019-2020 academic year has been filled. If you are still interested in becoming an executive, consider nominating yourself and run a campaign in the next election season. Or nominate your self as a representative.
