It’s that time of year! The CSA is holding its annual elections for executive positions. It’s an excellent time to become involved with the CSA, whether as an exec or a member at large. To nominate yourself, send your name, the position you want to run for, and a brief statement as to why you think you would be a good candidate.
Nominations are due by midnight on March 28th. You can send them to classics.students.mcgill (at) gmail.com. Elections will be held a week later, on April 4th—stay tuned for more details, and come vote even if you aren’t running for a position!
The positions are as follows:
President : Runs the show, coordinates things between the CSA, the AUS, the Department of History and Classical Studies, and basically is in charge of more stuff than I can name in one listserv. Responsibilities include: attending departmental meetings, delegating, organizing the Colloquium. Should have leadership skills, organization and love writing/responding to emails.
VP Finance : “oversees the fiscal management of CSA operations.” Basically is in charge of money, budgeting and writing funding applications. VP Finances should be organized and good with math (obviously).
VP Internal : is the liason between the CSA and the department/profs. Also assists the VP Events in planning events, helps with table bookings and fundraisers.
VP External: attends AUS Council meetings, is the liason between the CSA and the AUS. Should not have things to do on Wednesday nights and enjoy student politics!
VP Events : is also in charge of events, of both an academic and social nature. Examples: movie nights, pub nights, anything you can think of! VP Events should be motivated and creative!
VP Communications : writes the listserv in a hilarious, pithy manner; helps with other means of methods of CSA publicity, ex. posters, website, facebook page, etc. Should love puns and dorky Classics jokes.
Secretary: Attends and takes minutes at every CSA meeting. Helps out when needed in all areas of the CSA.
