We’ll be having elections for LSA Officer positions on February 26, 27 and 28.
From Today to Feb 22nd we will be receiving nominations; if you would like to be considered for any position in the upcoming elections, please send in your nomination and the position you are interested in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Being on LSA is a great way to get more involved with your professors and fellow students, as well as the academic community as a whole; it also provides many networking opportunities and lots and lots of fun.
LSA Officer Positions are those of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Linguistics Program Advocate and Undergraduate Liaison.
To know more about each position please check the LSA Bylaws on our website (http://lsa.sdsu.edu/) and talk to us!
The elected officers will start their mandate in June, 2013, but are more than invited to participate in all LSA business as soon as they are elected. The idea is to make a smooth, productive transition from this term to the next.
