It's that time of year again to start the process for Elections 2021-2020!
The following positions are up for election:
If you wish to run for an admin position, check out our current positions and complete the following Google Form (external link) by 11:59pm est. on Monday, May 24, 2021. Descriptions for each of the executive positions are provided within the form. Once the May 24th deadline has passed, we will post the candidates' information and everyone will have a chance to vote during the official voting period which will be held May 25 - May 29, 2021.
Note: President, Vice President, and Treasurer are all mandatory positions for student organization renewal. If you are unsure at this time whether you are eligible for a position on the We Believe You Executive Board, we encourage you to still complete and submit an application. All applicants will have the opportunity to meet with a current executive board officer to discuss their application and/or answer any questions regarding the e-board positions and assigned duties/roles.
For this election, we will be following and closely adhering to the recommendations provided by the Virtual Elections Guidelines from 2020, as well as guidance provided during the Mandated Annual Round Table for student organization officers.
What’s New? For this spring election, we will be trying something new which will include connecting with each candidate via phone/video conference and conducting a short 20-25min interview. If this is something you are not comfortable with, please indicate that on the application and we will find another way to connect with you that is accommodating to your preferences.
We want to extend our deepest appreciation for your patience during this adjustment period and hope to secure the best accessible route for voting as possible during remote instruction. If you have any questions about the election application or further inquiries regarding We Believe You, please email us at email@example.com.Note: Email response time is typically 12-48 hours.
We wish everyone a very safe and happy summer break! We hope to see you back on campus very soon.
Take Care and Happy Elections!
