NZUSA Elects its 2019 Leaders
The New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations (NZUSA) has elected the student representatives who will lead the student movement in 2019. Otago's very own Caitlin Barlow-Groome was elected to serve as Vice President, with James Ranstead (Lincoln University) elected to serve as National President.
The elections took place at the NZUSA Congress (Annual General Meeting) where student leaders from across Aotearoa gathered to discuss the future of tertiary education and the big issues facing students.
Our Executive have had a busy first half of the year settling into their roles here at OUSA. They’ve been balancing a number of projects and initiatives, and representing student views on a vast number of committees and working groups. Each quarter, they reflect on their roles and report on what they have been up to - have a read through each of the first quarter reports and if you have any queries or comments make sure you get in touch!
Other ways to have your say! OUSA hold two referenda each year, each has three stages; a call for questions, followed by a student forum to discuss the questions and then the voting period. Our next referendum will be open soon, where you’ll have the opportunity to put forward a question, whether on university policy or wider student-related issues.
