Student Local Sections Council Elections

As students, do you have ideas about how AIHA can support you?  Do you have ideas on how to get student local sections talking to each other and building a student community network?  How about ideas at a grass roots level on heightening awareness and rallying enthusiasm around choosing our profession as a career choice? 
 
If you do, a leadership role awaits you on the Student Local Sections Council (SLCS)!
 
Positions of Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary are open each year before AIHce.  Officers serve a one year term.  Ideally, student leaders have at least one year of school left so that their leadership comes from an active student's perspective.  Any AIHA student member in good standing may be nominated for the positions of Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary.
