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!


Time commitment: 

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 spent on duties, as well as an added layer of responsibility to your fellow board members, faculty, staff- and to your fellow students.



  • 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: nsslha@pdx.edu


“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!
