Acolyte - Nominations plus news
Dear MSW students,
I've had so much fun as your President this year. Acolyte has really begun to move toward it's intended purpose as a social and active part of the Florida Atlantic community. Through our voter registration drive, our barbeque, the holiday toy drive, our advocacy work through PACE, our partnership with the National Association of Social Workers and our upcoming National Lobby Day and career day, we are doing our part to put the School of Social Work out in the community to be recognized for the great program that it is.
With graduation coming up in May, it will be time for me to pass the gavel to another to carry on Acolyte's work next year. We will begin accepting nominations for the next President on March 17th. If you or someone you know of would be interested in running for the position, please email Acolyte with the nomination. The election will be held in May.
The Presidency is a rewarding and challenging position. Personally, it is one of the best things I have ever participated in. The best part was getting to know and work with so many of you. There are so many promising students in our midst and I'm honored to be a part of this graduating class.
If you have any questions about the position, please feel free to email or talk to me on campus.
Have a great spring break!

Nominations - MSWs
Dear MSW students and faculty,
It is time to look for a new president for Acolyte's 2005-2006 school year. Hopefully you have someone in mind that you think would make a good leader. The president should be able to organize people and events, delegate responsibilities and communicate effectively with other students, faculty and professional's in the community.
Position duties include recruitment of members, organization of activities like the orientation barbeque, membership meetings and community outreach projects (suggestions would be a toy drive, advocacy with NASW and National Lobby Day) and the Career Fair 2006. Much of the communication and outreach work can be done through email at our AcoyteFAU account. Flexibility, creativity and communication skills are a must.
The rewards of this position are great. You will have a chance to meet and network with interesting and knowledgeable people in our student population, our outstanding faculty, the National Association of Social Workers and professionals in the community. You will make life-long friendships that will support you in your efforts. This position does take work and time, but with the right team behind you...it can be done!
Professors and students, please e-mail us with names of students you think fit this description. Nominees will be contacted before the April election to endorse their nomination. It's a great honor to be considered for this position and I look foward to extending the offer to run to the exceptional students nominated. Please feel free to nominate yourself if this sounds like something you would be interested in.
I can't tell you enough how honored I am to have been able to serve as president this year. It really was because of the efforts and dedication of the entire Acolyte board and you as members that we were able to get so much accomplished and move Acolyte toward it's intended purpose.
Let the nominations begin!
