Elections for LELS president and secretary
The Labor and Employment Law Society is holding elections this month for two positions on the LELS board: President and Secretary.
Everyone interested in running for these positions is asked to submit brief candidacy platforms summarizing their interest, qualifications and ideas for the job. (A short paragraph will do.) The candidacy platforms should be e-mailed to LELS@kentlaw.edu by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, November 17.
After we hear from interested candidates, an election will be conducted via e-mail. (More details to come.) Below are descriptions of the duties for both the President and Secretary. The terms run until the end of the fall 2011 semester.
President - The President shall call LELS meetings, coordinate the operation and direction of LELS including, but not limited to, programs (panels, speakers, socials, debates, etc.) and committee assignments. The President serves as a liaison between LELS and the Chicago-Kent Student Bar Association ("SBA") and the administration. The President shall only cast a vote in an election, matter for discussion, or proposed amendment to the LELS constitution, in the event of a tie.
Secretary - The Secretary shall compile, maintain, and distribute the minutes of meetings and the records of the LELS. The Secretary shall keep a current list of members and work with the Technology Director to ensure that the LELS membership directory on the website is current. The Secretary shall provide "back-up" for the Technology Director in posting announcements on The Record and the Student Organizations Calendar. The Secretary shall work with the Alumni Liaison to maintain a list of alumni members.
The future of the Labor and Employment Law Society depends on filling these positions with students who are passionate about LELS and willing to work to make our organization successful. Please consider volunteering for these positions to help make that possible.
