Each residence hall at Northeastern has a Hall Council consisting of five elected positions, each with their own responsibilities:
The President is responsible for overseeing the Hall Council as a whole and making sure that Hall Council programs and initiatives run smoothly.
The Vice President is responsible for serving as the Hall Council’s liaison to RSA, meaning they are responsible for attending weekly RSA General Council meetings and informing their Hall Council about what is happening with RSA. They represent their hall during RSA meetings (such as sharing upcoming events in their halls or raising a concern brought to their attention that apply to residential community as a whole).
The Secretary is responsible for taking and submitting minutes during weekly Hall Council meetings, as well as filling out post-program evaluations. They attend bi-weekly RSA Hall Council Committee meetings to collaborate with other Hall Councils and share feedback with the Hall Council Co-Chairs.
The Treasurer is responsible for managing the Hall Council’s spending and filling out the necessary financial paperwork.
The Advocacy Representative is responsible for collecting and acting upon residents’ feedback in order to make changes in the residence halls and attending bi-weekly Advocacy Committee meetings.
In addition to the elected positions above, each Hall Council has a Senior Resident Assistant (SRA) who serves as their primary Advisor, as well as a Residence Director who also advises them. The elected Hall Council members may also create additional Hall Council positions such as floor representatives as they deem appropriate.
