Officer Elections

Staff Assembly Officer elections take place during our May monthly meeting. Any current or newly elected senator is encouraged to nominate themselves or a colleague by emailing Staff Assembly. There are 5 offices to be filled: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Social Media Coordinator. Nominees will each have 2 minutes to introduce themselves to their fellow senators and say why they are interested in running for office.

If you have any questions about an office, you may set up a meeting with the person currently holding the position. The list of current officers is on the Staff Assembly website: A description of each position can be found at
