Fifteen students are elected to the VicSRC Executive Committee each year. In 2019, VicSRC Executive Elections are going online! Read on for details about voting for the 2019/2020 VicSRC Executive Committee!
On this page:
The VicSRC Executive is made up of 15 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.
In a typical year as an Executive Committee member, you might do some or all of the following:
Attend meetings with the Minister for Education;
Speak on panels to teachers and educators;
Advise the Department of Education on how to design programs or initiatives to best support students;
Advise the VicSRC staff on the strategic direction of the organisation and which priorities to focus on; or
Sit on committees made up of different stakeholders in the education system.
VicSRC seeks to be as representative of all Victorian students as possible. We ensure diverse representation on the Executive Committee through a balance of students from rural/regional and metro Victoria, students of all genders, and representation from a range of Independent, Government and Catholic schools. We also make sure that no more than two people from any one school are part of the Executive Committee. If you would like further information about this, please email us at .
Great! Voting for the students who will represent you to decision-makers and advocate on your behalf is an important thing to do.
All Victorian students who are registered STUDENT members of the VicSRC are eligible to vote in the 2019-20 Executive Elections. You must be registered as a member by 11.59pm on Sunday 11th August 2019. Voting begins on 12 August 2019 and you will receive an email with instructions on how to vote.
We encourage voters to carefully consider which candidates would form the most motivated and diverse team (taking into consideration experience, age, year level, background and location), and be the best representatives for Victorian students at a state level in 2019-20. There will be information about each candidate on the ballot form when you vote online. Candidates also have their photo and bio on the Student Voice Hub.
