Each spring ACC students vote for the upcoming academic year’s ACCSA Executive council positions: President, VP-Finance and VP-Events & Marketing. Every September, a General Student Council election is held to elect 10 additional student representatives. The ACC campus in Parkland also has four council members that are elected in September: VP Parkland, Finance Chair, Communications & Marketing Chair and Social Coordinator Chair.
ACCSA council members also sit on several College committees throughout the academic year, bringing forth a student perspective and providing valuable input to college planning.
