Hey Org Leaders - Read on for this week's org updates!

Officer Election form

Let CONNECT Help Run Easy Elections

If your org is transitioning officers this semester, let CONNECT help with an easy election process. 

Org leaders can simply create an online election form that allows you to share information about each candidate and let each member vote anonymously.

Officer Transition

Officer Transition

Speaking of transitioning officers, make sure you effectively transition the responsibilities between outgoing and incoming officers.  Not only is it important to share the nuts and bolts of managing an organization, but it's important to collaborate on a shared vision and long-term plan for the organization.

Check out out a number of resources to help you succesfully pass the torch this semester.

Seeking Student Org Events for Family Weekend

Each spring we welcome families to campus to showcase the talent of our students.  Student organizations are a key part of this talent and we'd love to show off your efforts.
