The 2021-2022 NSSLHA Officer Elections are officially OPEN! Please fill out the application on PSU Connect. Below are further details about the election process including an election disclosure statement. Please refer to the NSSLHA Election Doc for further information on each position.
Want to know more? Do you have...
A strong drive to learn and self-manage your responsibilities?
A passion for growing the student SPHR community here at PSU?
A flexible attitude to communicate proactively and professionally with others?
Well-developed time management skills- not only to meet deadlines, but the foresight to solve problems before they happen? Then running for a spot on next year’s board might be right for you!
We’ll be sending out detailed information soon about each board member position and what it entails. But roughly, depending on your role, you might expect to spend up to 3-7 hours a week for your duties on the board. This varies a bit, and there will be slower times and busier times- think of it like working in a research lab. Beyond that, though, being a board member does take a certain level of self-motivation, both in time spend on duties, as well as an added layer of responsibility to your fellow board members, faculty, staff- and to your fellow students. Of course, this responsibility comes with many rewards:
The chance for you to distinguish yourself in this department
Strengthen your relationship to faculty and peers
Build connections that will carry beyond your time at PSU, and
Make your community in PSU’s NSSLHA’s chapter even stronger!
Common questions and answers:
“This sounds like too much right now”. That’s ok! We hope we’ll still see you at our next NSSLHA event! Or, maybe you have a fellow student in mind that you think would rock it? Please feel free to nominate them by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
“But what if I haven’t been a NSSLHA member for very long?” Not a NSSLHA member currently? Never served on a student board before? That’s okay! Most board members are new to NSSLHA or board experience. We’ll train you- and we promise, it will even be fun!
