About FCSS Elections

Faculty of Community Services Society (FCSS) is holding a fall election cycle to elect vacancies on our board. The FCSS is the official Board of Govenors recognized student government in the Faculty of Community Services.

There are many responsibilities that the FCSS team has and you can read all of them in the By-Laws Short Descriptions which can be found at www.fcssociety.ca/governance. Please see the bottom left of this page for the nomination form, and vacancies.

Elections are run by the Chief Returning Officer (Jacob Circo), who is appointed by the Board of Directors. The CRO can be reached at jacob.ciro@ryerson.ca Everyone who wants to run must attend an info session AND the All Candidates Meeting. If you cannot attend either you MUST email the CRO at least 24 hours before. You may send someone in your place to the All Candidates meeting as a proxy but you must tell the CRO who will be attending in your place 24 hours in advance.

The CRO will send out the Election Policies to the confirmed candidates. It is your responsibility to know this document as well as the Constitution and By-Laws, especially if you are elected.
