USASA is currently affiliated with the National Union of Students. This entitles a delegation of 7 annually elected students to attend the NUS National Conference with rights to vote on content at the conference. The conference typically deals with the policy platform and strategic direction of the NUS, and elects the office bearing team and national executive for the subsequent year.
The next one will be held in December 2021 and USASA will accept nominations for these positions as part of the USASA Board election process. Please note that you must attend the conference or proxy your votes to someone else attending the conference for your delegate votes to be counted.
You do not need to run for the USASA Board to nominate as an NUS Delegate, and you do not need to run as an NUS Delegate to nominate on the USASA Board. Although you may notice some cross-over with the candidates, these are separate elections held concurrently. USASA Election Regulations and rules for campaigning will apply to the NUS Delegate Election.
