CGS Senator Application

There is currently a special election open for a CGS Senate seat that has been vacated mid-year.

The elections will take place at the CGS General Body meeting on Friday, December 1st from 3:30 - 5:30pm. All applicants must be available to attend either in-person or virtually in order to be elected. 

Materials and applications for running are due by Friday November 24th, at 11:59pm ET. Materials and applications will not be accepted after this point.

Please submit all application materials via the Senate Application Form.

For your qualification documents please upload any supporting documents you would like the delegate body to see with your application (e.g., cover letter, cv, resume, letter of recommendation). A resume or CV and a cover letter are highly recommended. A maximum of 5 pages will be allowed. Any documents greater than 5 pages will be cut off at the fifth page manually when the delegate packet for the elections meeting is assembled. There will be no exceptions to this policy. All supporting documents must be compiled into one PDF file. 

We also (strongly) encourage you to submit your profile photo and a short biography which will be used on the website for those individuals who are elected.
