Since the 1970’s the International Student Association has been one of the largest and most active student groups at UMaine.  We need strong and dedicated leaders to continue this tradition.  Undergraduate students are encouraged to run for President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary, while Graduate Students are encouraged to run for Graduate Adviser. These stipulations are in accordance with UMaine Student Government policy.  In addition, the Treasurer cannot  be a member of the Student Senate.

Nominate an ISA leader today using the form below!

You can nominate yourself or another student for an ISA office using the form below.  A candidates nomination will not be complete until his/her nomination receives a second and third nomination.  If you nominate yourself or another student, please be sure to ask at least two other students to nominate the candidate using the same form.  Please keep in mind that you only need TWO additional nominations.  Excessive nominations will NOT increase your chances of winning the final vote.
