How to Volunteer
General Volunteer Information
The Association is only as strong as its membership, so we count on the time and commitment of our members to achieve our goals.
There are many ways to volunteer and provide service to CUASA. From serving on the executive in a Steering Committee position, to being a Council representative for your unit, or volunteering for one of our standing committees or joint committees with the University.
The Collective Agreement recognizes CUASA work as Service in members’ annual reviews.
2022 CUASA Steering Elections
Information for the 2021 Steering Elections is found below. If you have any questions about the nominations and elections process, please contact CUASA’s Chair, Nominations and Elections, Marylynn Steckley, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two signatures from Association members are required as nominators, and the nominee must also sign to accept the nomination. Once all three signatures have been made, the form can be remitted to the CUASA Office.
Note: During the COVID-19 situation, members are encouraged to seek the two signatures electronically, if they’re able to do so and their technology allows. If e-signatures are not possible, members can submit the nomination form to Office Manager Deborah Jackson at email@example.com, with a CC to your two nominators so that Deborah may contact them directly to confirm your nomination.
All nominees and nominators have to be Association members. Anyone who is not an Association member will have to sign a membership card before they can be nominated or nominate someone else. Membership cards can be found here (PDF) or here (Word).
