About Our Elections
In the month of March, a Classified Senate Nomination and Election committee is formed by direction of the Classified Senate President to elect new Executive Council members.

Please consider nominating your fellow Classified Professionals for a position as a member of the Executive Council. Your Service Is Needed!
