Hi all! Nearly all members of the CCSA are graduating this year. While that’s great for us (!), it means that nearly all executive positions on the association will be vacant come May. We will be holding elections to fill these positions for the next academic year in March, but if you’re interested in running for election to any of the positions described below, it is advisable to contact us as of now at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, being part of a student association is a great way to get to know your program’s Faculty and Staff, as well as your fellow students. It will add weight to your references from professors and no doubt also looks GREAT as valuable administrative experience on any CV!
