Executive Board Election FAQs

 

How many UVU students serve on the UVU PRSSA Executive Board?

14 students serve on the Executive Board.

If elected, how long would I serve?

Your length of service will start June 1, 2016 and will last the entire Fall and Spring Semester of 2017-2018.

What is the time commitment for being on Executive Board?

You should plan on committing 6 hours a week minimum for PRSSA.  The Executive Board will meet twice a week as part of the academic course COMM 4250: Communication and Leadership.  To fulfill the responsibilities of the office, work and projects will be required out of class. If you’re concerned about the time commitment, it’s best to ask the current Executive Board member what amount of time they spend in their position.  Needless to say to be a successful executive board member, you must be able to manage your time well.

If elected, do I get academic credit?

Yes. All Executive Board members are required to enroll in the academic course COMM 481R: Communication and Leadership, during fall and spring semesters. During fall semester, the three credit hour class will meet Tuesdays/Thursdays between 2:30 – 3:45 pm. Class meeting times during spring semester have not yet been determined. There may be internship credit opportunities in the spring semester.

I just joined PRSSA this year, should I still apply?

Absolutely! We are happy to have new members apply for executive board positions.  If you have an interest in PRSSA and have shown your interest through getting involved in the chapter you’re welcome to apply.

I’m just a Freshman.  Can I still run for office?

One of our current goals is to increase the activity of our younger members to build a strong group of leaders for the future of the organization. Go for it.

What do you look for in an executive board applicant?

We want you to be qualified, but more than anything we want to hear ideas. We try our best to make PRSSA the best organization on campus, but we know there’s always room for improvement. We’re not a group that sticks to doing the exact same thing every year. Sharing new ideas for the position you’re interested in will show us that you’re an innovative thinker. We also look for members that have shown an interest in PRSSA by getting involved and have the qualities of a good leader.
