RALEIGH — With only two meetings left, the UNC-system Association of Student Governments is setting up for its next administration.
The association met this weekend at N.C. State University and passed a reform bill and four resolutions. Members nominated a single ticket for president and vice president.
ASG, funded by an annual $1 student fee, is composed of student delegates from all 17 UNC-system schools.
Among the resolutions passed were: a resolution to add A-plus to the systemwide grading scale, a list of the ASG’s legislative priorities, a resolution to raise awareness of the use of Congolese conflict minerals in technology and a resolution on renewable energy.
Alex Parker, student body president of N.C. State University, and Leigh Whittaker, student body president of UNC-Asheville, who have been friends since high school, are running uncontested next month for president and senior vice president of the association.
ASG President Robert Nunnery and Senior Vice President Olivia Sedwick had won last year’s election as write-in candidates, but Nunnery said he doesn’t foresee Parker and Whittaker losing.
Parker said he and Whittaker have already begun discussing plans for the organization if they win, which will be made public next month during the campaign.
The election will be held during the ASG’s March meeting.
