  • The GMM will take place in BA 7231 (Bahen Centre).
  • We will video conference on Zoom for students unable to attend physically.
  • For those of you attending in-person, lunch will be provided!

While not required, we would appreciate if you complete this form for feedback and catering purposes.

A New Constitution?

We have drafted a new constitution and are seeking feedback and ultimate approval from the general membership. Please have a look at the before-and-after and propose any amendments ahead of the GMM.

Ideally, we will make appropriate amendments to the draft before it is presented at the GMM. However, during the meeting we will hold a Q&A session and accept further amendments on the draft before voting on it as a whole.

Nominations for the General Election

Joining the CSGSBS council is a great way to make a difference, serve your fellow graduate students, and meet new people. If you’re interested, please have a look at both versions of the Constitution. Candidates may run for multiple positions, except for both President+Vice-President or President+Treasurer.

This election is somewhat unusual as it will take place immediately after the vote on a new constitution. Up until the candidates’ introductions (after the vote on the constitution) during the GMM, we welcome self-nominations. Most of the roles and duties remain unchanged, but should the new constitution be rejected,

  • Candidates for Vice-President may choose to withdraw or instead stand for President.*
  • The Liaison for Applied Computing Students will be appointed and non-voting.**
