WHAT DOES EACH COMMITTEE MEMBER DO?

Download the PDF document, ‘BUSA 2020 ELECTION GUIDE’, from the ‘Election Materials’ page to find a description of each position. This includes a list of role responsibilities and estimated hours per week of commitment required. Make sure you read this before applying for the role.

I HAVE READ THE ELECTION GUIDE BUT I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ROLE…

Email president.busa@bond.edu.au, message the BUSA Facebook page, or contact anyone on the current committee and we can answer your questions.

I THINK I WANT TO NOMINATE BUT I’M WORRIED ABOUT CAMPAIGNING…

It’s normal to be nervous about campaigning for the first time, but please don’t let this prevent you from an opportunity you’re excited about pursuing. Ask any Bondy who has run for a position on BUSA or an FSA – campaigning is very informal and isn’t something to be worried about. Also, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, campaigning is restricted to online platforms this year. 

I’M CONVINCED! HOW DO I APPLY?

Download the Word document, ‘2020 BUSA ELECTION BY-LAWS’ from the ‘Election Materials’ page. Read the by-laws, then complete and return the nomination form (on the final page) to president.busa@bond.edu.au. You can nominate individually or in a pod.

We’re looking forward to receiving your nominations. Again, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,

Charles Bond Fewster

BUSA President
