Student Government Association to elect senators during Jan. 9 meeting

Student Government Association’s first meeting of the semester will be at 7 p.m. Monday in the Bovee University Center Auditorium.

The biggest item on the agenda is senate elections. There is currently no legislation that needs to pass.

“The first meeting of the semester is always kind of crazy because we have elections, but this semester is different because there isn’t a senate leader,” Vice President Anna Owens said.

Each candidate will give a speech and students will vote on their positions. After voting, senators are sworn in during General Board.

The first half of the meeting involves General Board, which includes both the house and senate together. It will then break for house and senate sessions. Senators will be elected during General Board. There are six-to-seven senate positions open at this time.

The senate meeting will be run differently than usual because Owens, the former senate leader, was promoted to vice president. 

The vice president will run the senate meeting until a new senate leader is elected Monday night.
