Running in the ISA elections

If all candidates for a position are present in the room, they may then be asked questions (all the questions should be put to all of the candidates at any one time).
If you would like to run, but will not be on campus on Tuesday Nov 1st, you can send a speech to email@example.com to be read out for you.
Commitment to the ISA committee
You are expected to commit between 2-5 hours each week on your role. This may vary during the year, if we run big events it might take more time; but smaller ones might require less so.
The committee set up on Nov 1st will be trained within the Guild.
Furthermore, Chair training will be happening in the Guild on 2nd Nov 2011 from 12-1 pm in the Mandela Room.
There is Guild Councillor Training on Thursday 3…rd Nov 2011.

Greetings to all international students at the University of Birmingham!
Have you heard about the International Students’ Association?
When you are an international student, you are automatically a member of this association. It is there to represent you and help you get your voice heard.
We would like to hear your ideas about what you would like the Association to be this year and how you can help take it there! Come along to the first meeting of the ISA where you will be able to discuss what you think your Association should do for you and how it should do so.
It will also be a good occasion to meet new people, and expand your friends’ network!
The meeting is scheduled for 4-6 pm on Tuesday 18th October 2011 in Rosa Parks, in the Guild of Students.
See you there!
Your International Students’ Officer at the Guild of Students
