Things to consider before applying

This is an opportunity to take leadership to the next level. Students wishing to run for Student Executive Council should be self-directed, responsible individuals who follow-through with commitments they make. They must also be very positive role models, since this is a highly visible position throughout the state. SEC members must attend four Board meetings each year (including the preceding SEC retreat), OASC Fall and Spring Conferences, and at least one session of OASC Summer Camp (waived for 2021-22 SEC). Other commitments include membership outreach, OASC newsletter contributions, helping out at regional workshops in your area, and frequent communication with members of the Board. If you are chosen to run for a position at Fall Conference, you, your leadership adviser, and leadership students at your school are required to attend Fall Conference to help support your campaign.

Who may apply?

8th Graders, Sophomores or juniors currently attending an OASC member school. Student Executive Council members have full voting privileges, and serve a term of one year. If they are elected as 8th graders or sophomores, they have the option of running for more than 1 term in the same or a different office. Students running for State President must be juniors.

Terms of Office

Please note as stated in the OASC constitution: “A student on the OASC Student Executive Council shall serve a one year term. They will be elected at Fall Conference, take office immediately, and serve until the following Fall Conference.”
