Role and Responsibilities
California State Thespian Officers are elected at Festival to one-year terms.
Candidates must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or greater and have attended California State Thespian One Day Leadership or a Student Activities’ state leadership training.
If the student is elected, the Troupe Director does not automatically become a member of the State Board.
Serving on the State Board requires a substantial time commitment and may involve some expense to the student, Director or troupe. (Airfare for meetings and Board Specific Events would be covered.)
Candidates are required to help out during the Festival to gain experience for the
subsequent Festival they will help plan.
Student Thespian Officer positions consist of a Chair, Vice Chair, and members-at-large. All candidates will run as members-at-large.
