Any WMU student in good standing is eligible to become a CAB member. There are four types of members: executive board members,
RSO representatives, independent members and associate (non-voting) members.
Executive Board Members
E-Board members are elected in April and serve a one-year term. All e-board members get one vote during allocation and other elections except the president. The president votes only in the case of a tie.
CAB general assembly meetings are held in room 208 of the Bernhard Center on Mondays at 8:30 P.M.
All Registered Student Organizations are encouraged to send a representative to CAB meetings to serve as a liaison between the groups. The rep receives voting rights after attending three consecutive meetings and submitting a letter from the RSO president assigning you as the new CAB rep to the CAB Office Coordinator. There may only be one CAB rep per RSO.
WMU students who are involved in no other RSO on campus. Therefore, you are a representative of yourself. Independent members receive voting rights after attending three consecutive meetings.
Associate members can attend all meetings and events, but do not get to vote in any elections. If you are a member of an RSO that already has a Rep, or if all independent member positions are filled, you are welcome to become an associate member.
Voting members lose their voting privileges if any two meetings in a semester are missed. RSO reps and independent members may send alternates in their place. Alternates should check in with the Office Coordinator before the meeting begins.
Representatives in good standing with CAB retain their voting rights over the winter break. However, no member retains voting rights during the Spring or Summer semesters, and all members must earn voting rights again after the Spring/Summer break.
