Can I vote in the UCSA elections?
YES. If you’re enrolled as a UC student, you can vote in the UCSA elections. You’ll get sent an email with a link to the voting form. There will also be voting booths set up on campus.
Can I run for the Exec?
YES. If you’re a current UC student, you can run for a position on the Exec. The only catch is that you must be a member of the UCSA. You can check to see if you are a member when you register as a candidate – if you’re not, you can join the UCSA on the spot.
What’s in it for Exec members?
Apart from the sheer joy of giving back to your fellow students (of course …) Exec members get the opportunity to govern a $9million organisation – and most of them haven’t even got a degree yet! They get to experience the inner workings of the UCSA, as well as the university, and various other boards and committees they sit on. Then there are the connections they make in their faculties, the community, nationally, and even internationally. Not bad for the ol’ CV.
