Club members who are interested in running for an executive board office in TR club next year should approach any of the board members to ask any questions and get familiar with the position. Nominations will be held at the end of the semester, you must pay dues to be considered for this position. Volunteering for the upcoming workshop will provide you with a good idea about how the TR board operates and what duties are carried out by each position. Also opportunities to shadow board members are available and may be a good way to get a good understanding of the executive board members do. Voting for next year’s board members will take place in the beginning of April. Nominations are due to any board member before March 17th. You may nominate yourself or another student.
