A message from Mason Kinesiology Club:
Mason Kinesiology Club is about to elect officers for the upcoming school year! The majority of the executive board is graduating in May, so we need our members to step up and run for a leadership position. If you are looking to really expand on your college experience, this is a great way to do it. We need students with ideas and initiative to lead the club next year, and newly joining members are also encouraged to consider taking a leadership role!
Join us for our next meeting: Thursday, April 12, 5:30 – 7:30 pm, Thompson Hall, 2008
Nominations are now open, and elections will be held on Get Connected after the meeting on Thursday, April 12 – Saturday, April 14. We will meet to hear from our candidates at the meeting, so they will have the opportunity to discuss with members. Those interested in running for a position do not have to be present at the meeting, as we will just present your nomination statement, but it is strongly advised that you attend! If you have been looking for an opportunity to get active in the club, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO SO. You are the future of this club, so please make an effort to be involved in the election process.
