How to Join

General information

Interested in becoming a part of our team for the upcoming year? During late March/early April, send us an email with the subject “CSBSU Exec Position” and:

  • Your name.
  • The position you wish to run for.

For a list of available positions and their corresponding roles, see below.
There is no need to specify reasons for joining or previous experiences! You can save those for your speech. Keep in mind that no previous experience is required, and that attending our previous events is not a requirement for running. However, showing up at our events throughout the year demonstrates dedication and would put you in a more favourable standing for the elections. There is a single requirement – that you take at least one CSB course during the year you run for a position.

After sending us an email, you will receive a confirmation email with details about the election date. We will post more info about the election date in April, so stay tuned.

Remember, as an exec member, you are expected to perform your assigned duties, attend and help out in our events, attend office hours and meetings weekly. Before you run for a position, make sure you have the time to commit to club activities.
