The Returning Officer for Student Elections (Deputy Director Rhonda Leece) has today emailed all students seeking nominations for the upcoming student elections for both the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Student Guilds.
Why is this important? Well, along with representing you students (and yes, you off campus students in particular) on University Committees, some of the newly elected representatives will also have the opportunity to sit on the Student Amenities Fee Advisory Board and have a say on how the Amenities Fee should be spent. We know that’s been a hot topic for off-campus students in particular and it represents a unique opportunity to shape the future for both existing and new students who will join the UNE family from Trimester 2 onwards.
Nominations will close on Monday April 9, with the election starting April 16 and closing on April 23 (we’ll keep you up to date with everything that’s happening). Results of the elections are expected to be announced on April 30, 2012.
