Positions offered include president of the clubs, treasurer, secretary, director of shared governance, and director of training and recruitment. The recruiting process is now taking place at the ASU Office, located in AA-109.
ASU President Ysrael Condori describes the ASU as “a self-governing board,” made up of students. The ASU’s goal is to represent student interests on campus.
ASU Vice President Luanna Waters said, “(The ASU) allows for the voice and perspective of CCC students to be heard.”
Currently, the ASU has three official board members: Condori, Waters, and Director of External Affairs Kirsten Kwon.
Waters said, “Currently, there are four people ending probation and on their way to become ASU board members.”
There are a few requirements to becoming a board member.
To begin the process, one must fill out an application in AA-109.
In order to qualify, a student must be enrolled in at least six units at CCC, and maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA.
If a student qualifies, there is a 30-day probationary period. During the probationary period, members will receive training.
Applicants are also required to attend all of the ASU’s meetings that occur during their probation.
Students of any major are encouraged to join.
The six-unit requirement means both full-time and part-time students are eligible for membership and ASU participation.
Waters said, “I would encourage CCC students to join the ASU because they can bring in their own ideas.”
This is Waters’ first term as vice president of the ASU.
She said she is excited about being able to help students, as well as affect the surrounding community.
