Officer Election Guide: Procedures
Every Spring Phi Alpha Delta holds one day of elections to fill both our Executive Board and Chair positions
Executive Board Positions:
Committee Chair Positions:
Social Media Chair
Professional Development Chair
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the elections will be held in a virtual format.
Each candidate will email a brief speech and the general membership will vote online. Voting will open on Tuesday, March 8th and conclude on Tuesday, March 15th.
After speeches, all candidates must leave the room and each officially inducted member will be allowed on the ballot. They will select only one person per position and anonymously submit the ballot to the front. The ballots will be counted by a third party (academic advisor or alumni representative) to be counted. Once counted, the current president will announce official winning positions.
After all newly elected board members have been announced, each will be officially sworn in by the current executive board. If there is only one candidate running for any of these positions, they must still fill out an application, give a speech and be elected by the membership. In case of a tie, the existing president and academic advisor will cast the winning vote.
