Student Government elects its membership in the spring for the rising Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes. Freshman elections are conducted in the Fall when school opens.
The government is structured in a parliamentary style; i.e., the leadership, or Executive Committee, (President, VP, Secretary, Treasurer, and Sgt. at Arms) are chosen from amongst the elected representatives. The President is a senior representative with one year’s experience in the government. The VP is a junior. Other positions may be drawn from any class.
Class officer positions are applied for and elected separately. Students may not run for more than one position (Class President, Class VP, Class Sec., Class Treas., or Class Representative).
Once the spring election is complete, and the Government officers elected from among the representatives, the Executive Committee (Excom) determines an early summer date to meet with the advisor to plot out and calendar the year’s activities, particularly Homecoming.
The Student Government President (and Vice-President when necessary) is required to attend monthly meetings of the Wake County Student Government Association.
