Second call for volunteers for URFA Committees and Joint University Committees!

Want to make a dif­fer­ence on cam­pus by get­ting more involved with URFA? Here’s your chance.

Although our annu­al call for vol­un­teers closed on March 1, 2022, there are still sev­er­al vacan­cies where mem­bers can step up as volunteers. 

Unless oth­er­wise indi­cat­ed, terms start on May 1, 2022, and end on April 30, 2023. Vol­un­teers should be will­ing and avail­able to ded­i­cate time to the work of their Com­mit­tee, includ­ing attend­ing reg­u­lar meet­ings, assist­ing with tak­ing min­utes if nec­es­sary, and par­tic­i­pat­ing in Com­mit­tee events, cam­paigns, and work.

If you want to par­tic­i­pate in any of the com­mit­tees, or want more infor­ma­tion, please con­tact the URFA office (by phone at 5854378 or by email at urfa@​uregina.​ca) as soon as pos­si­ble, and no lat­er than 4:30 p.m. on Fri­day, March 18, 2022.

In the event there are more vol­un­teers than posi­tions avail­able, the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee will elect rep­re­sen­ta­tives. Elec­tion will be based on sub­mis­sions that will be request­ed from can­di­dates, which will describe your inter­est in serv­ing the com­mit­tee, and rel­e­vant expe­ri­ence that you may bring to the position.
