Recruiting Officers for 2021-2022

We are looking for members to run for office and join our executive board for the upcoming academic year.  We’d like to have elections in the spring to allow some time for training and handing off of information before some of our current officers graduate or leave for study abroad.  Serving in MANRRS is a great way to get to know students across different departments in CALS, CNRE, and other colleges on campus. We welcome involvement from both undergraduate and graduate students. You can develop your leadership skills, your experience promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, your service and outreach skills–it’s a great opportunity to make new friends, to build your resume, and to grow in so many ways.  Please fill out the survey link here to express your interest in one or more positions!   And please spread the word to others who might be interested!

Nominations open for chapter officers and fundraiser signups!

Please use the link below to nominate yourself for an officer or committee person.  We are looking for folks who can take leadership starting in January 2018 and hopefully continue through fall semester.  However, if you are graduating in Spring 2018 and you are still interested in serving, go ahead and fill out the form.  It will be a great professional development opportunity!  Information about each of the positions and committees is available in a pdf file on the sidebar.
