Get Involved

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.

Please see below for our current vacancies, and contact the CUASA Office if you’d like to get involved.

CUASA’s 2SLBGTQIA+ Pride Caucus and Disability Caucus are now meeting regularly, and we are happy to welcome new members. These caucus groups are intended to be a way for people from equity-seeking groups to find community connections, socialize, organize, support one another, and share ideas with each other and with CUASA. These groups usually meet once a month.
