Student Representatives

Each year, MEDEX students at each site vote on their student class representatives including class president, vice president, treasurer, historian, social director, etc.  During the students’ first quarter on campus, they will hold a student meeting where classmates will be nominated.  Candidates give a brief speech about why they should be elected for a particular position.  Students will then hold a secret ballot for each position.  The student with the most votes will be elected.


Shall preside over the monthly meetings, set the meetings’ agendas, and submit the same to the secretary for copies and distribution, coordinate the activities of the committees, and keep the membership informed of the activities of these committees.
