Spring 2021 Elections

Spring 2021 Elections

When we wrote our Constitution and Bylaws, we chose to have annual elections take place each spring; however, due to the timing on our first contract ratification, we had to hold our first election in Fall 2020. Now that our first election has been completed, we’re moving to our regularly scheduled election cycle where half of the officer positions are up for election, as well as any open Representative Assembly positions.

You can read about the positions, the responsibilities for each position, and nomination requirements in our Constitution and Bylaws.

Information Sessions

To prepare for our inaugural election the Elections Committee held a series of information sessions via Zoom where we presented an overview of the positions available, reviewed the nomination process and the timeline for our election. The process outlined is the same process we’ll use for our spring 2021 election. Check out the recording below.
