URGSA Elections - Call for Nominations now open!

Dear Graduate Students,

It is that time of year already! We need to elect a new URGSA Executive for the 2015-2016 term. The nomination package can be downloaded  here. All of the positions are open for election and details on their roles and responsibilities can be found in the constitution. Please feel free to contact the current Executive for details on the roles and responsibilities if you are considering being nominated or come to our AGM on March 5th for more details. All dates are outlined in the nominating document with nomination period ending on Sunday March 8th at 11:59 PM. 

I would also like to encourage students to run for University Senate and Council positions through the URSU General Election that should be announced soon at These are great opportunities for students to get involved with their university community. There is also the benefit of acquiring experience in committee work and fulfilling leadership and volunteer activity requirements for scholarships and competitive CVs. 

We have all worked hard this year to develop a strong foundation for the organization to build on for years to come. However, there is still much work to be done! The current URGSA Executive is committed to ensuring a smooth transition by making sure the incoming Executive members are  well informed on the operations and on-going projects and concerns of the URGSA so that they can hit the ground running for the next year.


Derek Smith

URGSA Co-President
