Monash Graduate Association Executive Committee Election 2024/2025

Thank you to all the graduate students who nominated

Nominations have now closed for the Monash Graduate Association Executive Committee (MGAEC) election. Please see the notice below.

The MGAEC governs the MGA by making policy decisions and driving the broader strategy of the organisation as a whole. Serving on the committee provides a real opportunity for students to have a meaningful impact on decisions affecting the wider graduate student population at Monash.

Why have an election?

Student governance is the bedrock of the MGA. We hold elections each year so that graduate students have a say in who is advocating for their needs and driving policy for the community as a whole.

Why nominate?

Being a part of the MGAEC offers students the opportunity to collaborate with other motivated students, develop leadership skills, and gain valuable experience in problem-solving and decision-making. Not forgetting the opportunity to give back to the student community.

How many roles are there on the MGAEC and are they all the same?

There are 11 general representative positions and 4 campus-tagged positions that make up the MGAEC. Those who are general reps have the opportunity to take on an office bearer position such as Queer Officer or Research Education Officer. Campus-tagged reps can also apply for any office-bearer position except that of President.

How do nominations work?

Nominations closed Monday, 15 April at 5:00pm. It’s a good idea to read the MGA Election Regulations if you are considering running for office.

When will the election be held?

Polling will take place between Monday, 29 April and Friday, 10 May. You will be able to vote online, with a secure voting link being sent to your student email.

How do I find out more about being on the MGAEC?

To find out more please visit our Executive Committee FAQ or reach out to a current MGAEC member to ask them about their experience of being on the committee. Questions regarding the nomination or elections process can be sent to the MGA Returning Officer.
