Your ECOS Executive Council is made up of five elected members and three non-elected members. Elected members participate in Executive Council votes; these positions are the President, the Executive Vice President, the VP of Academic Affairs, the VP of Financial Affairs, and the VP of Student Engagement. The non-elected members do not participate in votes, but still play important roles on Executive Council. These positions are the Parliamentarian, Chief of Staff, and Recording Secretary.
