ASWSUV re-opens executive staff positions

On May 13, the Associated Students of Washington State University Vancouver (ASWSUV) re-opened applications for several executive branch positions within the organization. The four positions that are currently accepting applications are: director of legislative affairs (DLA), associate director of legislative affairs, director of communications (DC) and assistant director of communications. Applications for the above positions will be accepted until May 29 at 5 p.m.

Duties associated with the director of legislative affairs position include planning the annual “CougDay at the Capital” event in Olympia and coordinating campus visits for state representatives and senators to meet and interact with students. The associate director of legislative affairs position will include the duties of assisting the DLA when planning and organizing events and will also serve as the point of reference for all legislative matters on campus.

The DLA position has also taken on other responsibilities. In October 2014, former DLA Ashlyn Salzman organized the “Are you Smarter than a Secretary of State” event in which Oregon’s and Wash’s secretaries of state answered trivia questions along with students and faculty members.

Duties associated with the DC position include producing an online monthly ASWSUV newsletter as well as overseeing the advertisement and marketing of upcoming campaigns and promotions. The assistant director of communications position will perform duties such as maintaining the ASWSUV website and collaborating with the DC on advertising and marketing designs.

In order to qualify for the positions, students must be enrolled in at least six credits per semester during the 2015-2016 academic year and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. For a detailed outline of position requirements and lists of duties, access the ASWSUV page on CougSync.
