The 5 Main serve for term lengths of one school year beginning in August and concluding in June. Incumbent officers are eligible for additional terms but must reapply annually.
Officer teams are selected by an Election Committee consisting of at least 5 panelists. Current officers who are not reapplying, campus advisors, DOLLS Headquarters representatives, DOLLS Ambassadors, alumni officers, and officers from sister campuses are eligible to serve on this committee. Applicants must submit a completed 5 Main Application to this committee and schedule a face-to-face interview with the panel. Officer teams are finalized by June of each calendar year.
Students applying to serve as officers must be currently enrolled on the campus of which they are applying. Candidates must be upperclassmen, with the exception of newly formed chapters who may elect applicants from any grade. Officers must be willing to submit to the expectations noted in the 5 Main Constitution in order to be eligible for election.
Newly elected officers will take part in a sentimental induction ceremony to mark the start of their year of ministry. In August of each year, these officers are required to attend the annual 5 Main Conference hosted by DOLLS Headquarters where they will receive valuable training in the areas of leadership, Christian theology, and team building.
The Leadership Constitution is DOLLS’ standard of conduct for all women involved in any leadership capacity within the DOLLS ministry. It’s original draft was introduced in 2007 and was penned by one of the earliest generations of student leaders involved with our ministry who recognized the critical role their leadership would play in guiding their peers. The Leadership Constitution has since been carried down through the generations and is considered a privileged right-of-passage for all who aspire to leadership. It is designed to promote behavior that the Bible requires of all believers, to forbid behavior that the Bible condemns, and to foster godly behavior in areas that are not directly addressed by Scripture.
