Join the VicSRC Executive
The VicSRC Executive Committee; one year that will change your life!
The VicSRC Executive Committee (or Executive) is made up of fifteen students who are completing secondary education in Victoria. These Executive members are elected by their peers every year, and their job is to govern the VicSRC and act on the advocacy priorities identified by Victorian students at the annual VicSRC Congress.
Until now, the elections for Executive members have been held during Congress. The 2018-19 Executive are leading one of the biggest changes the VicSRC has seen in recent years, and we are now taking the Executive elections online!!
The VicSRC Executive are excited about the opportunities this change will create.
“In the past, any secondary school student could nominate to join the VicSRC Executive, but only students who attended Congress could vote,” said Julia, 2018-19 Returning Officer. “Taking our elections online means that a wider group of students can now nominate and vote for their peers who will lead the VicSRC, the peak body representing school-aged students in Victoria.”
Michelle, 2018-19 Returning Officer, added, “The VicSRC Executive are excited about this step as it helps us to be more representative of all students across the state”.
Long-time friends of the VicSRC will realise that this means the Executive term is shifting by a few months! Nominations for the 2019-20 VicSRC Executive will open in July, with voting to follow in August. All student members of the VicSRC who are in Year 7-12 (or equivalent) are eligible to vote and will be sent information about voting via email. The incoming Executive will be announced to the public and will officially begin their term at the VicSRC’s Student Voice Awards in October 2019.
More information about how to nominate for the 2019-20 Executive team will be shared via email and on social media in the coming weeks! If you’re a student interested in nominating, make sure you’re signed up as a student member so you get all the information first!
