Executive Board Reports

Elijah Williams, President
Please RSVP with me for the Student Senate Banquet and indicate any dietary restrictions. Menu is being discussed and will be released to the senate next week.

The executive board election will be next Tuesday, April 5. Please watch your emails for the ballot.

I wish to congratulate Sophia O’Neil on being elected as the 2022-2023 Student Senate President. I have started the formal transition with her which includes meeting with her weekly 1 on 1, inviting her to the Senate Advising meetings, and much more. This will also be extended to the elected executive board members following the election. They will be invited to meet with their current counterpart and will be invited to the closed-door Student Senate Executive Board meetings.
