Interested in serving your campus in a fun and meaningful way? The Associated Students of Cascades Campus is currently accepting applications for candidacy!
On behalf of Elections committee, I would like to commend you on your interest in ASCC. This packet should contain all of the information vital for you to be successful in your campaigning. If at any point you have a question or concern about the elections, please reach out to the Elections Committee and we will try and get a response to you promptly. The Elections Committee is here to organize and plan the elections to ensure that it is a fair and equal process. We are happy to clarify any guidelines.
This Elections committee is striving to ensure that the 2020 Elections are accessible and equitable for all candidates. We strongly encourage all students from any backgrounds, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status to run for one of the elected ASCC positons.
Elections can be a long and difficult process, so please take the time to read this packet and feel free to email me or the Elections Committee with any copies. Not being informed or ignorant is not an excuse to violate any of the guidelines set in this packet. The elections committee will take these guidelines very seriously.
The positions available through the election process are: President, Vice President (SFC Chair), and Director of Legislative Affairs. This packet contains important dates, election guidelines, and all forms necessary to become a candidate. Please ask questions if you need any clarification on the election process.
As a potential representative of the student body, feel free to ask around to students and clubs about issues they may be facing as a Cascades student. Being informed will help you as a potential representative for student voice. Just a reminder, campaigning starts on March 30th, 2020 so please wait to campaign until the date. This is the first step for a long journey ahead of you and we wish you the best in your endeavors.
Brian Chavez, Chair
