Club Sports Elections
Club sports teams are required to hold annual elections in April to elect for a Club President and Club Vice President. Members spend one week nominating either their self or a teammate for the role of Club President and Club Vice President. Members have the opportunity either accept or deny the nomination. Members that accept their nomination will be put onto a ballot for a one time vote at an in-person meeting or online election. It is an honor for students to be nominated for a Club Sports officer position. Students will not only serve as a club sports officer, but they will receive many tremendous leadership and educational opportunities. Club Sports officers will have the opportunity to gain much knowledge and experience through leadership workshops and seminars offered by Sports & Fitness. Club Sports officers will also have the opportunity to network with their peers and interact with other club team leaders and learn how they run their club team. This opportunity will allow students to put this experience on their resumes because of how much it stands out. Employers are always looking at resumes to see how much candidates were involved in college, and this opportunity includes a leadership role that will help stand out and always catch the eyes of future employers.
