On Monday, November 8th 2021, Washington Alpha held their first in-person chapter elections in two years, electing their 2022 executive board.
The 2022 executive board is as follows:
President: Cade Munro
Chaplain: Spencer Gering
VP of Programming: Bryce Becker
VP of Membership Development: Ben Chenevert
VP of Recruitment: Luke Deschenes
VP of Finance: Ben Nichols
VP of Communication: Jake Lofrese
VP of Scholarship: George Kelley
VP of SigEp Learning Community: Jack Burke
The night was filled with a series of firsts for many members as two of the four member classes present had never attended an in-person election due to COVID-19. However, this did not stop members from delivering speeches that reflected successful visions for the chapter.
The elections began with Cade Munro being elected President. Munro had numerous intentions to lead his chapter to a gold Buchanan Cup. His plans included filling the chapter house to full capacity during his term, improving alumni connections, focusing on member retention, and more.
Serving as risk chair for SigEp for the semester before, Munro has shown dedication to his chapter that he will bring to his new executive board.
In addition, the executive team is filled with prior involvements across the board. These include recruitment chair Luke Deschenes helping with recruitment efforts since last year as well as with the Balanced Man Scholarship, Chaplain Spencer Gering acting as the scribe for the previous year’s standards board, Ben Nichols serving as the Director of Community Relations for WSU’s Society for Human Resource Management club, and more.
When asked about the coming year, President-elect Cade Munro responded:
“I am very grateful to have the opportunity to begin leading this house while it is thriving on campus. The executive board in 2022 is the most dynamic, passionate, and balanced group of men I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Each and every member elected has a unique perspective essential to the groups functionality, and this is what I believe makes this board bound for greatness. I know that we will continue to strive to represent our values to their core, and continue to help our brothers achieve this as well. We hold ourselves as a board to the highest standard, and I could not be more proud of the men representing WA Alpha SigEp in the coming year.”
The future looks bright for WA Alpha.
