USC Chan students go 3 for 3 in AOTA elections
February 27, 2015
All three USC Chan Division students running for elected positions to the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) Assembly of Student Delegates (ASD) won their respective races. Joseph Ungco MA ’16 was elected chairperson, Ellen Wleklinski BS ’14, MA ’15 was elected vice chairperson and Elizabeth Peters MA ’16 was elected secretary.
The ASD is the legislative body for student input and concerns into AOTA affairs. As a standing committee of the Representative Assembly (RA), the ASD Steering Committee serves the ASD membership by synthesizing student concerns to represent the student point of view to the Board of Directors, the Representative Assembly, the Commission on Practice, the Commission on Education and other AOTA bodies as needed.
In other election results, alumnus and Board of Councilors member Shawn Phipps BS ’97 was elected AOTA Vice President and alumna Arameh Anvarizadeh BS ’05, MA ’06, OTD ’07 won her race for California representative to the RA.
Congratulations and Fight On!
