Dear AU Student:
Have you wondered how you could get involved with your Students’ Union? Have you wanted to play a role in shaping the experience of AU students? Here is your chance! It is election time again for the Athabasca University Students’ Union (AUSU). Elections will be held on March 20, 2004 so get to your post office or computer and send in your nomination for AUSU council today. Send nominations by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to the AUSU office at 10030 – 107 Street, 2nd floor, Edmonton, Alberta, T5J 3E4 Attention: President. For further information, call 1-800-788-9041 ext. 3413.
Anyone submitting a nomination must be a registered student of AU at the time of the nomination as well as at the close of the election and must remain a student at AU throughout his/her term on council. Students, as defined by the AUSU by-laws, are those who are currently enrolled in an AU course, or who have completed a course within the past six months. If course extensions have been purchased, the revised end date is used to calculate student status.
As stated in the AUSU By-Laws, “Any Active Member in good standing may submit to the Council a self-nomination together with the individual’s written consent to act, if elected” (Article 11_Elections, Section 2-Nominations).
“Member in good standing” means an individual who is a member of the AUSU in any of the categories of membership prescribed in the By-Laws, has paid all fees, and has not been subject to disciplinary action from the University or the AUSU.
Students must submit their name, student I.D. number, address and/or e-mail address, and the individual’s written consent to act along with their nomination. Deadline for self-nominations/nominations is January 17, 2004.
All self-nominations/nominations will be acknowledged after the closing date. Nominees will be given an opportunity to withdraw their name from the list of nominees provided their notice of withdrawal is received by the last day of January, 2004.
Debbie Jabbour, President
Athabasca University Students’ Union
