Constitutional Amendment:

The GSA Constitution has been the same over the past 6 years. As the group grows, we have made several recommendations and have heard several critical responses from our members and peers to help make this group better. By formally putting forth a number of amendments and swearing them in with a majority vote, we will be able to amend our constitution for the first time. Amendments may include new positions, new policies, new voting rules, etc.

As a 2012-2013 Paid and Registered member, you have the right to submit a constitutional amendment(s) to the GSA in the form of an email by Tuesday September 18, 2012 at 11:59PM. On Wednesday September 19, 2012 the GSA will email all members a Word Document with all proposed amendments for a 24-hour review purpose. The amendments will be presented Thursday at the meeting via slideshow presentation and you will be allowed one vote per amendment to have it sworn in or not.

The GSA Office (located at 21 Sussex Ave, 4th Floor, Room 423) will be open Friday September 14 from 1-4PM and Monday September 17 from 2-4PM to sign up and pay for your 2012-13 membership to be eligible to put forth an amendment. Please email your amendment(s) to with subject line: “Constitutional Amendment”

Director Elections:

We will be electing our 2012-13 Director positions at the General Meeting this year. There are 5 Director Positions up for grabs as well as any new ones that may be created through our constitutional amendment:

  •   Director of Cultural Affairs
  •   Director of Social Affairs
  •   Director of Athletics
  •   Communications Director
  •   1st Year Representative

You will be expected to make a one minute speech in front of everyone, take questions, and be voted on by a ballot vote. If you cannot attend the General Meeting, please submit your 1 minute speech to the GSA and an executive will read it out for you. Please email all speeches to by Wednesday September 19, 2012.

Free Pub Night

We will reward your patience and participation in the General Meeting by treating you to a free pub night afterwards at a local pub. The location will be announced at the meeting.
