Deadline to apply for SA director positions extended

By Northern Star staff

The deadline to submit applications for director positions in the Student Association for the 2015-16 academic year have been extended to noon Thursday.

The extension was made due to the low number of applications turned in, said Chief of Staff Chad Harris. Only 20 applications were submitted by Friday’s original deadline, compared to the 45 applications last year, Harris said. Although there was a “diverse group” of applicants for each of the 11 director positions, Harris said, the SA decided it’d like to open up the opportunity to more students.

The applications can be accessed at Students must log in to the HuskieLink website using their Z-ID and password to submit an application.

Appointed by the president or vice president and confirmed by the SA Senate, directors are expected to maintain office hours, attend weekly staff meetings and attend functions where SA attendance is required, according to the SA Bylaws. Director positions are paid.

There are 11 director positions in the SA.
