The SRC wants you!
On the 30th and 31st of October you students will go to the polls to elect a new Student Representative Council (SRC) for 2007/08. Students can vote online via Queen's Online (www.qol.qub.ac.uk).
For those students new to Queen’s, or for those current students who are unaware, the SRC is the body of students elected to broadly represent student interest within the union, the university and society as a whole.
The SRC role is to hold the executive to account, lobby the university on behalf of students, formulate Students' Union policy, to make decisions on a range of issues that affect students and to scrutinise the general administration of the Students' Union.
So why should you stand? Any student can apply. Students are encouraged to take part as the SRC can be a very rewarding experience and could certainly benefit a student’s CV. It can be a good way to make new friends and to have influence over what goes on within the SU and outside it.
This year focus will be on how many candidates the newly established QUB Greens and Fianna Fail at Queen's run.
Nominations for the SRC close on the 24th of October at 5 pm while open and post-graduate constituencies’ nominations will be opened after 24th October 2007. Voting will take place on 30th from 7 am and will close on 31st of October at 5 pm.
To all those who are thinking of putting forward a nomination, good luck!
