Alemany ASB Class Elective
The Student Government at Bishop Alemany is comprised of two groups: Elected Officers (Student Body and Class) and Commissioners. Each position has a unique set of responsibilities, however all positions work together to form the Associated Student Body. The ASB class meets various days before school and after classes to accomplish both meetings and projects.
The Associated Student Body (ASB) is an opportunity for students to be involved in the day–to-day governance of Alemany and in a variety of special events. The ASB class represents the entire student body population and act as a liaison to the Administration and community. The Associated Student Body works to assist in furthering the school’s mission, provide constructive input, as well as design and coordinate student activities and community events.
Executive Student Body Officers
The Executive Student Body Officers hold the four highest positions in ASB and report directly to the ASB Director and Administration. Current school year Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors elect the ASB President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. The newly elected ASB Officers take part in interviewing and appointing the ASB Class Commissioners.
The ASB Officers spend an average of 8 to 15 hours a week planning and overseeing school events including but not limited to: Athletic Events, Rallies, Dances, Intramurals, School Spirit and Community Outreach Events. Due to the amount of prior knowledge needed to fulfill these offices, one year prior experience in ASB is required. For students without prior ASB experience that are still interested in running for secretary or treasurer, you may meet with Mrs. Fama to discuss options.

Each class elects its own President and Vice President. These offices have a set of duties unique to their class needs and require additional time commitment outside of the regular class hours. Fundraising is required at each class level and is a yearlong effort. Class Officers report to both the ASB Director and their Class Moderator. Senior Class Officers spend substantial time overseeing and planning Senior events, fundraisers and Prom. Strong organization skills, attention to detail and follow through are critical to successful fulfil the duties required.

Students interested in serving as an ASB Commissioner apply and interview for a position in the class. It is the goal of the ASB Director and Elected Officers to identify and appoint students with a variety of talents who accurately represent the student population and student interests. Time commitments outside of the regular school day are required and vary over the course of the school-year. We are always looking for artistic talent, photography skills, video and editing skills, people who love to recruit guests and sell tickets, tour guides, students with strong organizational skills and more!
