Looking for ways to get involved on your campus? The Central Student Association is looking for eight students to fill their Board of Directors.
As your student union, the CSA has a history of standing up for the rights of students on this campus. Whether it is by fighting for a free, accessible education system or by providing you with services like the Bike Centre or the Food Bank, the CSA has been at the forefront of advocacy and campaigns on this campus.
The CSA has taken active stances against war, tuition fees, and privatization. It has also taken stances in favour of Toronto Pride, women’s freedom to choose, building of the Sikh temple in Guelph, past occupations of administrative offices, and so much more. The shape the CSA takes this year is up to you.
HOW WILL YOU SHAPE YOUR STUDENT UNION?
If you are interested in becoming a CSA Board of Directors, you will need to fill out a nomination form and college 20 nominators within your college. You can find the nomination form on the CSA website or you can come by the CSA office on the second floor of the University Centre to pick one up.
Nominations are due Wednesday September 19 at noon in the CSA office.
Once you are nominated, you will be given a budget of $75 to get the word out to your fellow classmates to vote but more importantly, to vote for you. Everyone gets an equal chance in CSA elections. That means that everyone is limited to a budget of $75 so make sure to make every penny count!
Please don't hesitate to contact the elections office ([email protected]) with any questions you may have or jus to talk about the elections. We love to hear from everyone!
