Dear ,

Have you heard about this new UGBC structure? Did you know that student organizations will have a louder voice next year and that you or a member of could represent your respective cohort of organizations?

The Student Assembly (former Senate) will consist of 50 seats, including 20 seats designated for Student Organization representatives.

This is where you come in: Run for Student Assembly for next year!

This position is your opportunity to get more involved at BC and to play a vital role in advocating for student organizations. The Student Assembly has received increased voting and directive power. As a Senator you will hear and vote on new initiatives from within UGBC and brought to the government from students. If you are devoted to than this is a great way for you to advocate for them and to maximize what UGBC can do for organizations and the larger student community at Boston College.

If you are interested in learning more, please fill out this form on myBC. There is no obligation at this point. There will be a mandatory Senate candidate meeting on Tuesday, March 19th to confirm your candidacy and to learn more about the election season, which begins on Wednesday, March 26th and ends on Friday, April 5th.

As you gear up for (a much needed) spring break, make sure to plan how you will transition your leadership, complete training credits, and continue to make progress on your yearly goals. As always, please stop by or contact us if we can be of any assistance.
