ECGPS is a great organization to be involved with at the University of Iowa! We have many opportunities for leadership roles for all graduate and professional students!
Who is Eligible to Run for a Leadership Position?
Only member government delegates or alternate delegates or people who have held the office of President, Vice President or Executive Officer positions within ECGPS are eligible to be elected to the President, Vice President and Executive Officer positions.
Eligibility for President alternates between graduate and professional students each year. This year a candidate running for President must be a professional student and a candidate running for Vice President must be a graduate student to be eligible. The candidate running for President is not also eligible for the Vice President position.
All other leadership positions are open to any graduate or professional students. However, if you are interested in running for GPAC Chair, you may not be a Delegate.
How Can I be Considered for a Leadership Position? The Nominations Process
Each candidate for a leadership position must be nominated. Candidates may nominate themselves for any position. Each position is for a 1-year term. No application needs to be completed, just a nomination.
Nominations will be posted on the ECGPS website as they are submitted.
The Election Process
Each candidate will be given the opportunity to give a 3 minute speech prior to the election of that position. Following the speech, the ECGPS body may ask the candidate questions for a period not to exceed 10 minutes. After each candidate has had the opportunity to give a speech and answer questions, the candidate will be asked to step outside of the room while each ECGPS voting member votes.
Results of each election for each leadership position will be made public prior to proceeding with the election of the next leadership position.
A candidate interested in running for multiple leadership positions may give 1 speech and will receive 1 question and answer session for each position that the candidate is running for. A candidate cannot be elected to more than 1 leadership position. The candidate that receives the majority vote will assume the leadership role.
What are you waiting for?! There is no University without U!
We look forward to receiving your nomination and accepting the challenge!
