Call for nominations for the 2017/2018 MPA Executive Committee

The Monash Postgraduate Association (MPA) is now calling for nominations for the Monash Postgraduate Association Executive Committee (MPAEC) for the 2017/2018 term of office.

Nominations must be made on the official nomination form. Nomination forms can be obtained in hardcopy directly from any MPA office, sent on request by calling 9905 3197, emailing, or by downloading the nomination form

Nominations must be signed and submitted to the Returning Officer by 5:00pm, Tuesday 21st March 2017 by email attachment: MPA Returning Officer

The committee term begins in June and runs for one year. The MPAEC meets monthly to discuss issues of relevance to postgraduates and to make decisions on behalf of the postgraduate community at Monash. This can involve writing policy, responding to University proposals, planning seminars and running social events.

There are a total of 15 positions on the MPAEC: five campus-tagged representative positions and ten general representative positions. The five campus-tagged positions (one each for Clayton, Caulfield, Berwick, Parkville and Peninsula) are open only to postgraduates enrolled on the corresponding campus. The ten general representative positions are open to all postgraduates on all campuses.

Postgraduates may apply for both a campus-tagged representative position and a general representative position but may hold only one position on the MPAEC. The outcome of the campus-tagged representative positions will be determined before the outcome of the general representative positions. No more than two research and two coursework postgraduates from the same faculty may hold positions within the ten general representative positions.
