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

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.

Voting Rights at Meetings

CAB general assembly meetings are held every Monday in room 208 of the Bernhard Center at 8:30 P.M. There, RSO representatives and independent members can vote on collaborations, budget changes, constitutional amendments and elections.

General Assembly Members

RSO Representatives

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.

Independent Members

Any WMU student who attends CAB meetings. Independent members represent themselves and receive voting rights after attending three consecutive meetings.

Voting Information

Voting members lose their voting privileges if two consecutive meetings in a semester are missed. RSO reps 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 summer semesters, and all members must earn voting rights again after the summer break.
