 Executive Committee (EC) Representative Elections

Contact: tasnia.zzoha@sunysa.org

The SUNY Student Assembly (SUNY SA) will hold special meetings to conduct elections for Executive Committee (EC) Representatives positions during the month of August as outlined below.  There are 16 EC Representative positions available to comprise SUNY SA’s Executive Committee in addition to the elected Executive Board Officers and appointed Executive Cabinet Members.  

 

To be eligible to participate in this election, you must be recognized as a voting delegate by your campus as defined by SUNY Board of Trustee regulations and SUNY SA Bylaws. Please visit our FAQs to determine if you are eligible to run for an EC Representative or vote in these exciting elections.

 

Each election will be held virtually via Zoom and open for public viewing via the Student Assembly Facebook page. However, only voting delegates as confirmed by SUNY institutions and SUNY System will be allowed to join the official Zoom link to actively participate and cast ballots.

 

Interested candidates are encouraged to submit an advanced nomination form to ensure they meet all requirements. Nominations forms are available here and must be completed and sent to SUNYSAElections2022@suny.edu 2 business days prior to the scheduled election to allow for full consideration and the opportunity to cure any deficiencies in eligibility documentation.  Student Assembly Bylaws require that nominations be accepted “from the floor” on the date of the election, however for any such nominations to be considered by the Parliamentarian, they must have complete and uncontroverted eligibility documentation. Any incomplete or inaccurate documentation automatically nullifies the nomination.

The Executive Committee Representative elections were scheduled to take place during the SA Spring Conference on Saturday, April 30, 2022.  However, the SUNY SA Officers at the time decided to postpone the elections to a future date due to time constraints during the conference. In July 2022, current SUNY SA Officers emailed all voting delegates to determine availability for the scheduling of the elections.  The dates chosen are a reflection of the input given by voting delegates and the availability of the SUNY SA Executive Committee to host the elections.
