RUNNING IN THE ELECTIONS

2021 October election

Student representatives

These are the most junior positions available in these elections and provide a fantastic opportunity for students to become involved in our Representation system. All of the Union's policies are set by the Board of Management and student reps play a vital role within the Board as they are the voice of the membership within our decision making process. These are great roles for those who want to take their first steps within representation, increase their involvement with the QMU, become an active part of our community and influence change at the Union, the University and beyond. Positions available -

CURRENT STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE A (CSR A)

4 seats - 12 month term

CURRENT STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE B (CSR B)

3 seats - 6 month term

FIRST YEAR CURRENT STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE A (FY CSR A)*

These must be NO MORE than 300 words.

Corrections for spelling, grammar etc. will not be made on your behalf. Similarly, formatting of paragraphs etc. will not be made on your behalf.

In submitting this form I herby declare:

 

  • That I have read those sections of the Constitution, Bye-Laws and Policy of the Queen Margaret Union relevant to this election and the position for which I am standing;
     

  • That I am, and will continue to be for the term of my office, a registered student of the University of Glasgow and a member of the Queen Margaret Union at the time of this election (unless running for Former Student Member), and I permit the Executive Committee to confirm my student status with the Registry;
     

  • That, should this situation change, I will inform the Executive Committee within seven days and abide by the Board of Management’s decision thereafter

Thanks for submitting! Good luck!
