Committee Elections

We will be electing general members-at-large to several committees. Below is a description of each committee’s duties. If you would like to be on a committee but cannot make it to the GM, email cvp@ksu.ca or ask a friend to nominate you!

Elections Committee – 6 members, 2 alternates – Elections Committee works with the Chief Returning Officer to organize and facilitate elections. They help create posters, sit at the voting booths, and count ballots.

Bylaw Review Commitee – 3 members-at-large – My favourite! Bylaw Review Committee reviews proposed amendments to the Bylaws, and recommends changes to Council and the general membership. They make sure that our governing documents are accurate, transparent, and in keeping with Provincial and National law.

Equity Affairs Committee – 4 members-at-large – The Equity Affairs Committee formulates and drafts union policy on issues of equity. It also receives equity complaints regarding the Union and the wider University.

Environmental Affairs Committee – 2 members-at-large – This committee formulates Union environmental policy, and recommends policy to the wider University.

Galley Board of Directors – This board oversees the functioning of the Galley. What a blast!

Watch Board of Publishers – In collaboration with the Watch Executive, this board oversees the functioning and publishing of the Watch Magazine.

Revised Bylaws

The Constitutional Review Committee has prepared a report on the Union’s revised governing documents. We have redistributed the documents (formerly the Constitution and Procedural Handbook) into the Bylaws and Operations Policy, to better reflect the needs and operations of the Union.
