Thanks to everyone who came out to our first general meeting today – it was great to meet you all. As our first order of business for the school year, we will be holding elections to round out our executive membership. We will have several formal and informal positions open, including: Secretary, Treasurer, Social Media Coordinator, Members-at-Large, and class representatives for urban studies courses.
Elections will be held on Tuesday, October 9th at 1:00 PM in Room 107 at Innis College, which is just through the Innis Cafe across from the commuter’s lounge. We may move to the lounge or Cafe if more space is needed.
Serving on URSSU is a great way to boost your extra-curricular involvement, sharpen your organizational and communication skills, and get to know fellow urban studies students. What we ask of you in return are ideas, enthusiasm, and of course a little of your time – we will be holding 1 hour meetings about every two weeks throughout the school year where your attendance as an elected member would be greatly appreciated. Finally, as a course union, we attend a couple general meetings held by ASSU (the Arts and Science Student Union) every term.
If you are interested in running for election or just in helping out URSSU informally, here’s what to prepare:
- A quick introduction (your name, year, POSTs, interests)
- Why and how you want to be involved with URSSU
- Bonus: one idea for something you want URSSU to do or get involved in this year
Looking forward to seeing you all on October 9th!
