Nominations open for student spots on Education Council and College Board

Nominations are now being sought for candidates to fill student representative positions on the College Board and Education Council. The positions—two on the board and four on the council—each have a one-year term, commencing on Sept. 1.

The nomination period closes on Monday, March 17, 2014 at 4pm.

Information about the elections as well as nomination forms can be found at the Registrar's office at both campuses as well as at the Douglas Students’ Union Offices and at the Douglas College elections website here and here.

Considering running for election, but want to know what's involved? Plan to attend an information forum on Thursday, March 13th to learn more about service on either of the College's co-governing bodies. Meet representatives from the College Board and Education Council, who welcome your questions and will provide insights on:
  • the roles of the Board and Education Council
  • the role of an individual member
  • meeting schedules and time commitments
  • governance education and development opportunities, which may also be beneficial to students and their future careers
