I’m writing this as I enjoy my first day of university holidays – what a great feeling! I know I’m one of the very few lucky ones at this stage, so I hope everyone is feeling confident during exam time.
On the 16th of October we had our USASA board meeting, where we spent our time discussing USASA brand awareness and USASA in the middle of the merger discussions. For those of you who are unaware – an email would have been sent to you in your Student Emails this month regarding the merger decision. After months of discussion, it has been decided that the merger will not go ahead. I’d like to say a thank you to everyone who took part in the merger process, and made their voice heard as a student. It has been great engaging with you throughout this process, and has given USASA a greater understanding of the thoughts and needs of students around this topic.
Also on the 16th, I attended the Governance Committee meeting, where we are working on improving the current USASA constitution. Not a lot of interesting stuff going on here to report on – but a bit of my homework has included reviewing some clauses of the constitution.
Finally, on October 22nd I was re-elected to the USASA board as City West Representative, and I would like to thank everyone who supported me during this time. USASA elections are a lot of fun – mostly because I always seem to make a lot of new friends and because I can have some pretty fun conversations with other people along the way. I am really looking forward to next year, and am already putting together plans to engage with students at City West!
That’s all the important stuff for now, seeya next time!
