Student Board Members

Become a Student Board Member!

Student Board Members provide input into the direction of Student Pugwash USA (SPUSA). Six students represent SPUSA chapters and members on the Board of Directors of SPUSA. The responsibilities of the Student Board Members include:

  • Participating in Board meetings to guide SPUSA's vision and programs.

  • Communicating with chapters and members of SPUSA to learn about their needs and accomplishments, as well as to get general feedback about the goals and activities of SPUSA.

  • Communicating with SPUSA’s national office to convey student ideas and opinions and to provide the staff with support in reaching out to new or established SPUSA campus programs.

Student Board Member elections take place annually. Each year, three representatives are elected for two-year terms. Reelection is not permitted; however, it is possible for a ‘graduating’ Student Board Member to be invited to join the Board of Directors as an alumni representative or as a senior member.

Thinking about running to become a Student Board Member? Review the election guidelines, or contact current representatives to see how you can become more involved in SPUSA.
