Elections are here and this is your chance to become a leader in our community! I am glad that you have decided to run for a position in student government here at California State University, Long Beach. I encourage you to review the elections packet on BeachSync.com (Calendar, Handbook, Checklist, Signature Petition and Position Descriptions).
As a member of ASI Student Government, you will be able to use your voice to represent students. Our students matter, so we are looking for dedicated leaders to advocate for student needs and uphold important responsibilities. You will be able to spearhead the change you would like to see on our campus. Leave your legacy by becoming an ASI officer, serving on various committees, and providing your input to positively affect current and future students.
Practice the part by acquiring the appropriate amount of signatures from CSULB students. This is a mandatory portion of this application period. Executive positions must obtain at least 100 student signatures. College senator candidates must obtain 50 signatures only from students majoring in that college. For all other positions 50 student signatures is required. Each signature must be paired with the student’s legible CSULB ID number (NOT social security number). It is advisable to obtain more signatures than required. Please remember this is the only permissible campaigning before March 5th. In addition, to the signature petition, two platforms (Voter Guide and Ballot) are required with your application. Please see more information about the platforms below.
The Office of the Dean of Students will verify whether you meet academic eligibility qualifications and that you are not on academic, disciplinary or administrative probation (reference: 2017-2018 CSULB Campus REGS, Regulation II in www.csulb.edu/regs).
YOU CANNOT CAMPAIGN UNTIL MARCH 5th (except acquiring signatures for the petition form) (This includes verbal and nonverbal campaigning)
We strongly encourage you to speak with someone who is currently serving in the position you are interested in to be better prepared for your desired position in ASI. Additionally, it is strongly encouraged that you attend a Board meeting that you are interested in serving on. I look forward to working with you throughout this election period! If you have any further questions, I can be reached at email@example.com or (562) 985-5241.
Best of Luck!
