The State Area Vice- Presidents representing their Areas may Presidents representing their Areas may be elected annually at their respective will be elected annually at their respective Area Meetings at the State Leadership Area Meetings at the State Leadership Conference. Conference. Submitted by Cinco Ranch Chapter Reasons to support this amendment: 1. State officers should be elected at the State Leadership Conference, not at Area Conferences where Area Officers are elected. 2. The Bylaws state ―Only candidates approved by the Officer Screening Committee shall be eligible for nomination or to hold office.‖ If elections are held at an Area Conference, it is too late for ―approval‖ and if problems are identified, it is too late for corrections. 3. Candidates, along with an adviser and a campaign manager, attend screening at the SLC to verify the support of the adviser and the local chapter. Advisers and campaign managers may not be a part of the process at Area Conferences. 4. It is not equitable for some candidates to face screening, caucus and election at the SLC and others to participate only as an after-the-fact formality. 5. The screening process helps ensure that the candidate, the adviser, and the local chapter members understand the responsibilities of everyone if the candidate is elected. 6. If there is no vice president to be elected at the Area Meetings at the SLC, those meetings are poorly attended. Students feel that the meeting is a waste of time which creates negative feelings about the association. 7. The elected vice president is still required to host a campaign booth at the SLC. This wastes money for materials since the candidate has already been elected. The newly elected officer feels that it is all a waste of time, too, and the membership does not understand why a booth is required. Reasons against this amendment: 1. Usually more chapters are present and voting at an Area Conference than attend and vote at an Area Meeting at the SLC, so more chapters have a voice in the selection. 2. In Area 6, candidates are screened by a panel of advisers, not student state officers. 3. Elections at an Area Conference may be less of a popularity vote since advisers may be more involved and offer more guidance to voting delegates.
