2. MENV STUDENTS: this information is for you!
The positions of Vice-President Internal and VP Social and Events to represent the MENV students have yet to be filled and we’d love it if someone got on board. A few individuals have come forward, but the formal process has yet to begin. If those who have expressed interest remain uncontested they will be appointed by the Geography executive, otherwise we will run an election.
In order for any individual to become part of the executive they must be nominated. So if you are interested in being the MENV VP Internal or VP Social & Events you need three Geography, Planning & Environment Graduate students in the MENV or MSc program to support your nomination.
Please find the nomination form in the attached PDF and complete it by OCTOBER 4th at 5pm. You can leave it in the Grad Oasis (H1236) where there will be an envelope on the bulletin board with the words Nomination Forms written on it.
If you found all this to be terribly confusing, PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO GET IN TOUCH!
