Vice Presidential & Speaker Elections

Any MSU member (an undergraduate student enrolled in 18 units or more) may run for the election of a Vice Presidential position or for the role of Speaker.  

Elections are held by Student Representative Assembly in April. For the 2018-2019 VP Elections, they will be held over two days: April 7 and April 8. You need only make your presence known at this first meeting if you wish to be considered. Please be advised that while nominations are open until the elections occur, the SRA has adopted parameters to govern how the election will be run. That information is available here . 

Together with MSU President, the Vice Presidents Administration, Finance, and Education comprise the MSU Board of Directors (BoD).  The BoD has vast responsibilities within the organization and to the undergraduate students of McMaster University. Together, this team of four individuals are employed for a year-long term, governing the daily operations of the McMaster Students Union. 

The MSU Speaker is responsible for presiding over meetings of the SRA and meetings of the General Assembly, ensuring that they run smoothly according to constitutional procedures in a fair and equitable manner.

To apply for any of these positions, you need not form a team or run a campaign.  You must, however, attend the Student Representative Assembly meetings on April 7 and 8, 2018. If you would like to be considered, you will be nominated for the position at this meeting. The election process gives each candidate the opportunity to speak to their qualifications and ideas and then Assembly members will have the ability to question the nominees.
