In Baltimore we’re going to be electing seven students to seats on the National Council, Alpha Chi’s governing board. If you or another member of your delegation would like to take this tremendous opportunity to serve a national office, read on.
Each of our seven regions will elect a student representative to serve a term that begins immediately in Baltimore and runs until the spring of 2014. Although much of the Council’s business happens by e-mail, the two big events are the annual meetings in 2012 (Baltimore) and 2013 (Nashville, in conjunction with the national convention). If you want to serve, you must plan to stay on in Baltimore through Saturday night (the national office will cover extra expenses caused by travel plan changes) and must commit to attending the Nashville convention and meeting in 2013. It’s ideal if you’ll still be at your Alpha Chi school next year, but it’s not a requirement for running for the position.
Students will announce their candidacy at regional dessert receptions Thursday night, and elections will be held at regional business meetings at noon Friday. The winners will join the National Council Friday night for its first session, and after the convention ends at noon Saturday, the Council will meet that afternoon and evening until adjournment.
