The Haas Business School Association 2017 Election process has finally begun! HBSA is the official undergraduate student government of Haas. We are responsible for all aspects of student life at Haas, from sitting on committees which oversee academic curriculum changes to creating social events for students.

Currently all positions except President and Executive Vice President are open to anyone with one or more remaining semesters at Haas. In addition, the President and Executive Vice President position is only open to Haas students who have served 1 full semester on HBSA. We encourage you to reach out to current officers to ask questions about their position. Please review the timeline and attachments for more information about the process.
