BSA Board Elections

What’s the big whoop about being on the Board?
Standing for election for the BSA Board is a great opportunity to have an impact on campus. It also gives you skills that will benefit you in the future.

The experience will help you develop practical skills in planning, management, negotiation and public speaking. Board training is part of the package and if you take on one of the major roles within the Board, there is an honorarium to help compensate for the increased time commitment.

Getting Nominated
Elections are held in September for positions for the following year and a By-Election is held each March to fill any vacant positions. Students must be a BSA member to nominate or be nominated for the Board. Any current La Trobe Bendigo student can vote in the elections.

Grab a nomination form from the BSA Info Desk and lodge it within the nomination period to officially throw your hat into the ring.
