We encourage all applicants to answer the questions thoroughly. Applications should be succinct yet still able to answer the question effectively. Unless otherwise noted, please limit an individual question response to 300 words. Completion of this form does not guarantee an interview with the Board. It is the responsibility of the applicant to respond to the any interview invitation in a timely manner.
Should you be offered a position on the board, we expect you to attend two retreats and leadership board meetings (typically one in June and one in July) over the summer. The dates will be determined by the 2019-20 Executive Board but they are typically the second weekend of May and the first weekend of August. While exceptions may be made if you have prior commitments, we would like the complete new board in attendance.
Please be aware prior to filling out this application that all officers of the board are required to be enrolled in at least 6.0 credit hours (unless participating in authorized academic programs, such as internships, co-ops, etc.) and must maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average or be in good academic standing with your department.
