Officer Election Guide: Procedures

Every Spring Phi Alpha Delta holds one day of elections to fill both our Executive Board and Chair positions 


Executive Board Positions:


Vice President




Committee Chair Positions:

Philanthropy Chair

Fundraising Chair

Social Chair

Social Media Chair

Professional Development Chair


To apply for a position listed above, each member must fill out this application and submit it to pad@colorado.edu no later than March 11th, 2019. 

On the day of elections, each candidate will give a 4-5 minute speech. Speeches will be given in the following order: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Professional Development Chair, Social Media Chair, Social Chair, Fundraising Chair, Philanthropy Chair (in alphabetical order by last name).


After speeches, all candidates must leave the room and each officially inducted member will be allowed on ballot. They will select only one person per position and anonymously submit the ballot to the front. The ballots will be counted by a third party (academic advisor or alumni representative) to be counted. Once counted, the current president will announce official winning positions.


After all newly elected board members have been announced, each will be officially sworn in by the current executive board. If their is only one candidate running for any of these positions, they must still fill out an application, give a speech and be elected by membership. In case of a tie, the existing president and academic advisor will cast winning vote.
