Chief Returning Officer
AUGSA is hiring a Chief Returning Officer for the 2015 AUGSA Elections.
With AUGSA’s 2015 Election around the corner, AUGSA is looking to fill the role of the Chief Returning Officer (CRO) from mid-February to the end of April 2015. This role will receive an honorarium of $1500 and will involve up to 2–5 hours of work per week. Depending on the number of appeals and complications during the upcoming AUGSA referendums and elections this role could be as little as 20 hours total.
The Chief Returning Officer reports directly to the GSA Council, and is responsible for all aspects of elections and referenda. This includes Chairing the AUGSA Elections and Referenda Committee, enforcing election and referenda rules, organizing virtual public forums and debates, promoting upcoming elections and referendums, advising candidates on election and referenda rules, and delivering election and referenda results.
The CRO will be paid upon submission of a full Elections and Referenda Report to the GSA Council.
We are looking for a person who is organized, motivated, responsible and works well without direct supervision. The successful candidate can be located anywhere in Canada, but must have a semi-flexible schedule to attend meetings. Training on bylaws and election processes will be provided to the successful candidate, though some prior elections experience would be considered an asset.
