How to Get Involved

During the Election Period (usually mid-spring semester)

During Non-Election Periods
Follow these steps:
  1. Complete an application to the Advocacy Board, Cultural Awareness Board, and/or Programming Board (below).
  2. You will be contacted by the Board Chair and/or the A.S. President in order to schedule a brief interview to review your application, discuss the Board's mission and goals, and talk about next steps.
  3. Attend an Advocacy Board, Cultural Awareness Board, or Programming Board meeting (depending on which you applied to).
  4. If your application is accepted, the A.S. President will appoint you to the Board to which you applied.
  5. After attending a minimum of three (3) Board meetings, you may be considered for a seat on the A.S. Senate (if there are open seats available).
  6. The A.S. President may, at his or her discretion, appoint you to the Senate. This appointment must be confirmed by a vote of the ASCSM Senate. In addition, you must meet all eligibility requirements (please see the ASCSM Constitution and Bylaws for eligibility requirements).
