Middle School Leadership
Become a Leader Today!
Stepping out of your comfort zone and leading your peers is a very exciting opportunity. There are two types of leaders, elected and appointed leaders.
Elected leaders run for office at the conference and if voted in by their peers become presiding officers of the conference. These are very important positions, but also require a lot of responsibility! The two positions you can run for are Speaker of the House or Lt. Governor. Only on candidate per position per delegation is allowed. Students should indicate on their registration their intent to run. More information can be found here.
Appointed leaders apply for their positions on their conference registration. Positions include: Legislative Committee Chair, Legislative Committee Clerk, Legislative Chamber Clerk, Legislative Inspirational Leader, and Political Compromise Committee Chair. These are a good opportunity for students who wish to gain experience and run for office in the future. Or, for students who want to lead but not to run for office. These are very important positions, but also require a lot of responsibility! More information can be found here.
