Exec Elections

Nominations are now open for the six voluntary positions on the Students' Association's Executive Committee! 

Being on the Executive Committee is your opportunity to improve the student experience at City of Glasgow College by representing the views of your fellow students and influencing change. As a member of the Executive Committee you'll undergo a skills training programme tailored to what you are interested in learning and gain valuable volunteering experience that will impress future employers. It's also a lot of fun and you'll get to have your say on what events we run and how we spend our budget of over £30,000 making sure our students enjoy their time here at City.

We have six different roles available and so there is something to suit many different interests. You must be continuing at College after the summer to stand for one of these positions. Once you've decided what role you'd like to stand for, all you need to do is to complete our simple nomination process and we'll support you through the process of standing for election.

The deadline for submitting your nomination form is 5pm on Tuesday 7th May. Please download the Executive Committee Elections Information Pack for full details.

What Do I Need To Do?

In order to take part in our elections all you need to do is complete a nomination form and create a manifesto (a leaflet that says who you are and why people should vote for you – we have some tips on how to do this). Once you've sent these to us we will email you inviting you to attend one of our Candidates' Briefing events where we will explain the election rules and give you some guidance on how to campaign effectively.
