USC VP applications now being accepted
Applications to become a University Students’ Council vice-president are now being accepted.

Declaration forms can be picked up from the front desk in the USC office, Room 340 in the University Community Centre. Positions include VP-campus issues, VP-student events, VP-finance and clubs, and VP-education.

Completed forms must be submitted by Thursday at 4 p.m.

Candidates will have a two-week long campaign period after Reading Week. The VPs will then be voted in by this year and next year’s councils at the USC’s annual general meeting March 18.

“These positions are obviously very important to the USC,” said Aron Yeomanson, USC communications officer. “Not only will the holders serve students for a full year in respect of portfolios, but they will also become a voting member of the Board of Directors and have a real impact on students at Western for the coming year.”
