It is time to conduct the final LELS elections for the upcoming 2009-2010 academic year.
The following positions are up for election and those individuals who win will serve through April of 2010 (see position details below):
- Vice President for Internal Affairs
- Vice President for External Affairs
- Technology Director
If you would like to run, just send a brief platform (a paragraph or two) to Mark Hoffman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All platforms are due by Wednesday, April 29th at 10pm. If there are contested positions, we will have elections.
We really do hope that many of you will consider running. We have accomplished so much this year because of the involvement of so many people. Also, we need to groom new leadership because Mark will be finished in December of 2009 and we'll need a new president.
Another reason to run is that involvement with the LELS is very rewarding and beneficial in interviews. Interviewers note involvement in LELS as a reflection of your commitment to labor and employment.
Also, a big thank you to graduating 3Ls Renee Fath (vice president), Stacey Scanlon (secretary), Alex Breland (Class Rep), and Maura Matuszak (Class Rep) for their contributions over the past year!
If you have any questions, please contact Mark at email@example.com
