THINK ABOUT RUNNING FOR A LEGISLATIVE BODY OR EXECUTIVE OFFICER POSITION

The elections for Legislative Body representative positions take place each April immediately following the Executive Board elections. The five First-Year Representatives to the Legislative Body are elected in early September. All members serve for a academic year unless an LB member elects to leave the college or resign. Look for an email from MCSG announcing elections during these times, email  or stop by the office in the second floor of the Campus Center. 

The regular Executive Board elections take place in late April, while elections for Program Board Chair and Financial Affairs Committee Chair take place in February.
