2021 GSU Elections
GSU will hold elections for seats on the Steering Committee to serve our union from May 24 until the end of Winter Quarter 2022, or when a new Constitution and Bylaws have been approved by membership (whichever comes first). Nominations are now open–nominate yourself or someone else by April 23!
As outlined in the plan, we will be electing:
-(1) General Secretary
-(1) Financial Secretary
-(1) Communications Secretary
-(6) Divisional Representatives: Humanities, Social Sciences, SSA, Divinity, BSD, PSD
As in previous years, these officers will be elected via a campus-wide general membership vote, with the exception of the Divisional Representatives, who can only be elected by members within their own division. Steering Committee officers manage the day-to-day governance of the union.
Unlike previous years, we will not be electing Stewards to represent individual departments.
Instead, as outlined in the Interim Leadership and Elections Plan, the Steering Committee will be expanded to accommodate seats for representatives from each active GSU committee and working group. Representatives from these committees will be elected internally by the members of each committee, and will not be subject to particular terms.
You can read more about the responsibilities of Steering Officers—and nominate yourself or someone else—here. If you have questions about the nomination process, elections, or the descriptions of different elected roles, contact email@example.com and someone from the Elections Committee will get back to you.
Elections will be held in early May. Nominate yourself or someone else by April 23 to help guide our union over the next year!
