The nomination period for elected positions in BAC SASLA is officially open. If you or someone you know is a motivated BAC student and wants to get involved, now is that chance! You can nominate yourself or someone else can nominate you.
All nominations must be emailed to Kara Peet, Director of Student Development by Wednesday May 23 at 5 pm. Qualifying candidates need only to be nominated with enough information to verify their eligibility (name, degree program, semester at the BAC, and desired position).
An official campaign statement from each candidate that lays out a campaign platform, more specifics about why the candidate should be elected, etc. will be collected. Voting will take place online and is anonymous.  Each active BAC student will be able to vote once and will be required to provide a valid student ID number and a matching last name to verify voting eligibility.
All students interested in participating in a leadership role must meet these requirements:
-S/he is currently enrolled as a full-time student, with two prior semesters of full-time enrollment.
-S/he maintains a 3.0 minimum cumulative G.P.A.
-S/he maintains Practice Compliance: all modes of practice assessment such as skill level are up to date.
-S/he is not delayed in the portfolio review sequence and schedule: meaning a student’s path to graduation is not being delayed by the submission or resubmission of a portfolio.

*NOTE: students who do not meet all of these requirements may participate as a leader with the permission of the Dean of Students, in consultation with Academic and Practice Advising.
