Hello CSSS members

Please disregard the email I sent earlier regarding the SFSS council Representative nomination form. There was a mistake in the earlier nomination form. 

The nomination period for the SFSS Council Representative for the CSSS is now open. The nomination period will last until 23:59 on March 12th. The elected individual will hold the position of council representative from May 1st 2021 to April 30th 2022. If you wish to run please follow the procedure listed below:


  1. Fill out a nomination form (attached is a digital copy) with the nominee's signature and send nomination form to csss-elections@sfu.ca. You CAN nominate yourself for a position.
  2. Have the candidate send a speech to csss-elections@sfu.ca by 23:59 on March 12th.
    Note: a speech is required to be able to run in the election. Please try to provide it with your nomination form.
  3. If you would like to see examples of past speeches, please check out:
    Speeches will be posted here sometime today so check back later if you currently find nothing on the site.

The SFSS Council Representative shall: 
  • Regularly attend all meetings of council
  • Fulfill the duties of an SFSS Representative (Councillor) that are outlined in SFSS By-Law 6
  • Report on Councils activities during general meetings
  • Councillors are now legal members of the SFSS’ Board of Directors and have additional responsibilities

The Council Representative position is also a paid position. The amount has not yet been announced but it will be higher then the $35/meeting it originally was.

Apologies for the inconvenience. 
   
Sincerely,
