We’ll be having our first general assembly (GA) of the year on Monday September 23rd at 6:00pm in the SCPASA student space (the basement of the CI-building, 2149 Mackay). We have plenty of items on the agenda, but one will be the approval of an amendment to our bylaws which would see the positions of First Year Representative and First Peoples Studies Representative. If these amendments are approved, we will go forward hear from candidates for this position and have those present at the GA appoint the positions from these candidates. Because these are not designed to be executive positions – they are instead consultation positions – we do not have to go through a formal election process.
If you are interested in putting forward your candidature for either of these positions, please email us as email@example.com. If you are interested in either of these positions and cannot attend the GA, please inform us beforehand. Again, these positions are tentative based on amendment approval at the GA.
Here are the proposed descriptions for each of the positions. Again, there is a chance that the assembly of students present at the GA may amend them:
First Year Representative
This is a consultatory position to the executive of the School of Community and Public Affairs Students’ Association to be appointed by general assembly at the soonest opportunity at the beginning of the fall semester. The First Year Representative will act as an advocate for all students who are in their first year at the School of Community and/or Public Affairs and First Peoples Studies, will survey them for their needs and concerns and will act as an advocate on their behalf. The First Year Representative is expected to attend general assemblies regularly, to attend one executive meeting a month, and to present periodical reports on how first year students are being represented to the executive and to general assemblies. The First Year Representative may also attend and suggest items pertinent to first year representation for executive meetings as needed.
First Peoples Studies Representative
This is a consultatory position to the executive of the School of Community and Public Affairs Students’ Association to be appointed by general assembly at the soonest opportunity at the beginning of the fall semester. The First Peoples’ Studies Representative will act as an advocate for all students who are enrolled in the First Peoples Studies program, will survey them for their needs and concerns and will act as an advocate on their behalf. The First Peoples Studies Representative is expected to attend general assemblies regularly, to attend one executive meeting a month, and to present periodical reports on how First Peoples Studies students are being represented to the executive and to general assemblies. The First Peoples Studies Representative may also attend and suggest items pertinent to FPST representation for executive meetings as needed.

The SCPA Barter Board is now up in the SCPA student lounge.
The bulletin board above the computer desk should be used by SCPA students to publicize books, course packs, housing and services for other SCPA students. The idea of this board is to facilitate exchanges within the SCPA community. This is a pilot project, and if SCPA students use the board the Student Association will purchase a larger board for exchanges.
Post an ad, or post a note saying that you support the barter board project!
