PUBLIC RELATIONS AND ELECTIONS

Chair: Caleb Mills

Email: Mercersgapr@gmail.com

Public Relations and Elections is charged with scheduling and officiating all campus elections. Moreover, it is tasked with maintaining the image of SGA on campus and to the student body. This committee also handles all marketing efforts regarding SGA. The goal of the Public Relations and Elections Committee is to ensure that all students can easily access information about student government, interact with their fellow senators, and  bring any questions or concerns they may have to upper administration.

Additionally, the Public Relations and Elections Committee focuses on external affairs and continues to facilitate Mercer's image in the Macon community. It is vital that Mercer and SGA remain active and engaged in the local community. This usually looks like volunteering, but we have recently started a new initiative to support local black owned businesses. All in all, Public Relations and Elections has a plethora of responsibilities that are essential to the connection of the student body, administration, and Macon community.
