2013 SAS Elections
Posted: March 4, 2013
Do you have some great ideas for improving student life at Scripps? Want to be involved with the Scripps community? The best way to make a difference is by joining Scripps Associated Students (SAS). Elections are coming up, and we want you to run for SAS!
There are over eighteen different positions to run for:
- Student Activities Chair (SAC)
- Diversity and Inclusivity Chair
- Sustainability Chair
- Judicial and Academic Review Chair
- Student Union Chair
- Clubs and Organizations Chair (CLORGs Chair)
- Media Relations Chair
- 5C Events Chair
- Campus Activities Chair
- Dorm Activities Chair
- Faculty-Staff Relations Chair
- Co-Senior Class Rep
- Junior Class Rep
- Sophomore Class Rep
- Recent Grad Trustee (seniors only)
To learn more about each position, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the student currently in that role. There will also be an information session in the Student Union at 9:00 pm on Wednesday, March 6.
Running for SAS is easy! First, make a statement of intent. This will be a one-page flyer with your name, photo, e-mail address, position you’re running for, and your statement/platform. These will be posted in the dorms, Student Union, and Seal Court, so be sure to make it eye-catching!
Statements of intent are due on March 24 by 9:00pm as PDFs to email@example.com. If you are running for President, Vice-President, or Co-Treasurer, you must contact the students currently in that position before creating your statement of intent; you cannot be abroad and run for these positions.
Next, prepare your speech. Speech night is March 27 at 9:00pm in the Student Union, and all candidates will give a two-minute (or less) speech. If you’re abroad, send a proxy!
We encourage students to get creative with their campaigns, but SAS bylaws do not allow students to spend more than $25 in publicity. However, you can get reimbursed by SAS for up to $15; receipts and reimbursement forms will be due on March 25 by 5:00pm.
Finally, if no position on SAS appeals to you, you can also apply to be a Board of Trustee (BOT) student representative. These students are chosen through an anonymous application process by a student committee. As a BOT student representative, you get to attend BOT meetings throughout the academic year and vote within your committee, and in this way, have a direct impact on the future of the College. Two voting representatives and one alternate are chosen for each BOT committee. Applications, which were recently e-mailed out by Emily Jovais, are due Monday, April 8 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
