Running for a position on the Executive Board or SLT is a great opportunity to be more involved at Tech.
Nominations are taken in the spring, with elections in May. Incoming families have the opportunity to run for
an open SLT or one of 5 freshman members-at-large positions. Nominations for those will be taken in September
with elections in October.
The presidency, VP of fundraising, and VP of communcation can be filled by an individual or by two people running
together. An additional sophomore vice president (VP) can be elected in the fall. Candidates may run for positions
not filled in the spring in the fall.
