Attend the meet & greet or forum. Learn about the candidates’ platforms. Ask questions. Decide who will get your vote based on what matters to you! Those who get elected represent over 12,000 SAIT students to all levels of government, the community and the institution – your vote matters! Candidates are expected to build a platform based on the 4 guiding principles of fairness, equality, student interest, and transparency. Platforms should be clear and realistic; ideally, candidates’ platforms will also incorporate components of Saitsa’s strategic plan, mission, and vision.
What students are running? Candidates will be placing their posters up around campus and seeking opportunities to spread their message. Saitsa organizes opportunities for students and candidates to mingle:
Meet & greets are designed to be a casual opportunity for students to interact with candidates and are held in the Stan Grad Atrium.
You can meet all of the candidates who are running for a student leader position at the Meet & Greet. The Meet & Greet is March 9, 2020, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in Stan Grad.
The forum/panel night is your opportunity to hear the platforms of each Executive Council candidate. Candidates will present their platforms and respond to questions posed by the moderator as well as other questions submitted by students.
The Forum/Panel night is on March 10, 2020, from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Odyssey. The Forum/Panel Night takes place during the Executive Council election period only.
These gatherings are your opportunity to hear from all of the candidates and compare their platforms and presentation. These events are designed to help you decide who to vote for as well as to provide a common place for all candidates to interact with students.
You can submit your questions to Saitsa.Elections@edu.sait.ca
