Representatives are the voting delegates on the Executive Committee. Each Representative is elected by their campus caucus at the annual spring conference. Representatives vote on behalf of their respective campuses at monthly business meetings held by the executive committee and represent the needs and interests of those campuses. Representatives also serve as resources for campus student governments by keeping them up-to-date on the Student Assembly operations and providing opportunities at the state level for their students.
