As I’m getting ready to head over to tonight’s SILS Holiday Party, it seems that I can finally post my exciting news (it will be announced at the party): I was elected Presdient of ILSSA for the 2012-2013 term!
Today, I met with the incumbent President and she explained the ropes to me. Rather than planning events and running bake sales (although I suspect that will be involved to some extent), I will serve as the voice of the student body to SILS Faculty and Staff. I will participate in faculty meetings, and I will help to appoint heads of various committees that influence the priorities and actions of SILS. It’s a big job, but I’m thrilled to get started, especially after today’s meeting!
