If anyone is thinking that the recent strife in council might mean that the experience is not rewarding, think again. Your editor was on council for a year, and yes, there was plenty of strife, but also plenty of support, wonderful opportunities, and an incredible opportunity to learn new skills and do rewarding work. I won’t lie – this job is tough, but so are AU students! I look forward to speaking with all of the candidates!
December 31st, our very best
The Voice writers are on holiday until the January 7th issue, but there will be a Best Of issue of The Voice on December 31, featuring a selection of articles from the past year that have been particularly memorable or informative to AU students. Catch up on what happened at AU.
Council reporter wanted
The Voice needs reporters who are able to write clear, critical and balanced reviews of what goes on at AUSU council meetings. Meetings take place about once a month, and may be attended by teleconference from almost anywhere in the world. Inquire with the Voice editor at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on this opportunity.
