The LDB is always looking for more members to create new ideas and help with current event planning. Frequent recruitment and marketing for campus-wide events is necessary.


Attend Meetings

Meetings are every other Friday from 3pm-4:30pm starting 10/12. Meetings are held in Luther Bonney


Student Government Elections

The LDB administers SGA elections. We need help organizing election events and promoting the elections to the student body.
