The Constitution of Moore College Council includes additional information regarding position descriptions, meetings, elections, and membership requirements, duties, and expectations. 

Fall 2016 Nominations, Applications, and Elections  

There will be two elections this fall. The VSG Representative will not be included in either of these elections, but instead will be elected separately through the standard VSG election processes. All 9 of the remaining Moore College Council positions will be elected this fall, but please note that in the future, as stated in the constitution, the president and social programming chair will be elected at the end of the spring semester.

The first election will include the following positions: President, Social Programming Chair, Service Programming Chair, Academic Programming Chair, Publicity Chair, and Secretary. The election is a two-step process. First, applicants must submit an application via Anchor Link form (see below). Applications will be screened by Moore College leadership for those candidates qualified by relevant previous experience, demonstrated interest, and completed application. These candidates will move forward to the second phase, which is an election also conducted via Anchor Link. During the Anchor Link voting period, residents of Moore College will be invited to vote for one candidate per position. The candidate with the highest percentage of votes for each position will be elected.
