As the governing body of the GSA, the WLUGSA Board of Directors (BOD) plays an important role in providing direction for the GSA both politically and financially. The BOD also ensures that graduate students are represented within the WLU community and that their issues are addressed.
The Board of Directors will consist of nine members; one Chair and eight Directors. Five of these Directors will be representative of the following faculties: one from Arts, one from Business & Economics, one from Music, one from Social Work and one from Science. The remaining three Director positions will be filled by Directors-at-Large.
The Membership will elect the Chair at the scheduled Annual General Meeting in March. Directors will be elected in September, based on voting by members, and serve until the following September.
The top vote recipients from each Faculty will be elected to the Faculty-specific positions, and the three Directors-at-Large positions will be filled by the top three vote recipients remaining after the Faculty-specific positions have been determined.
If you are interested in volunteering on the Board of Directors, check below to see if your constituency's seat on the Board is vacant, or consider running for next year's Board. You may contact your Board Representative regarding any GSA concerns, or issues you would like brought to the attention of the GSA.
All GSA members are welcome to attend Board meetings.
Details and relevant documents will be posted prior to each meeting. The Board meets on the first Wednesday of the month, unless otherwise noted.
