Elections on Oct. 1
The current Graduate Students Association Executive Board has several vacancies and we will have elections for the new student representatives to fill in these positions. We will be meeting the candidates on Wednesday, September 30 at an Assembly and elections will take place on Thursday, October 1st.
There are 6 main GSA Board positions and each position is filled with one permanent member and a substitute member. So the Board will be made up of 12 people. We have the following vacant positions at the moment.
1. Secretary (both permanent and substitute positions are vacant)
2. General Secretary for SES Substitute
3. General Secretary for SHSS (both permanent and substitute positions are vacant)
4. General Secretary for JCLL (both permanent and substitute positions are vacant)
5. Activities Coordinator (both permanent and substitute positions are vacant)
6. Treasurer Substitute
To nominate yourself or someone
All interested candidates must apply for one of these positions. The call is for the permanent positions. After the elections, for each of the above positions, where both permanent and substitute positions are vacant, the person with most votes will become the permanent member and the person with the second highest number of votes will become the substitute. Thus, you can not directly run for a substitute position.
So, are you interested in getting involved in student representation? Or do you know someone who would be the perfect candidate for one of these positions?
Self nominations are also welcome. If you are nominating someone, please send us an e-mail with the full name of the person you would like to nominate and the position for which you would like to nominate him/her. Once the nomination deadline is over, the nominees will have a couple of days to accept or decline their nominations. A person can be nominated for more than one position, although he/she can eventually only run for one office.
Please send your nominations to: firstname.lastname@example.org <email@example.com>
