What is an ASCO intern?
Interns are required to attend all meetings of the committees on which they serve. They meet with their respective Committee Chairs when asked to provide a report on goals and actions done on given duties, as well as participate in committee meetings. However, as a non-voting member, ASCO Interns are not permitted to initiate, second, or modify any motions.
What is an ASCO Vice-Chair?
Vice-Chairs assist Vice-Presidents in the preparation of committee meetings and projects. In the absence of the Vice-President, they serve as committee chairs. Similarly, in the absence of the Secretary, they undertake the role of the ASCO Secretary.
What is an ASCO Senator?
Senators support projects established by the ASCO. They vote on legislation through recommendations, allocations, and resolutions. Senators also vote to appoint ASCO Officers, Vice-Chairs, and PGC representatives to committees. Likewise, they vote to remove any appointments and elect ASCO members. Furthermore, they serve as the principal authority on behalf of the student body in overseeing all of its affairs, policies, properties, and conduct.

An ASCO Vice President is in charge of one of our six committees and chairs the weekly meeting. They lead the committee in projects and work with senators to accomplish goals!
What is an ASCO President?
The ASCO President sets, organizes, and chairs all meetings of the ASCO General Council and Vice President Cabinet Committees. They are responsible for all ASCO Vice Presidents' orientation and training, as well as ensuring that all Council Members complete the requirements listed in the General Duties of Council Members (Art. II, Section 9) They are also obligated to attend or send a designee to Board of Trustees meetings when the President's Report is to be delivered on behalf of the council.
