Four Casual Vacancies for QUT Guild Council Announced

On Wednesday, QUT Guild Noticeboard announced the casual vacancies of four faculty councillor positons.

These postions were trigged under the QUT Guild Constitution. One was triggered with C19.4, as Creative Industries Councillor Genevieve Hitzke was elected as the Guild Women’s officer as could not hold two positions concurrently. The other 3 were announced due to C19.1, which states that a member of council cannot be absent for more than 3 meetings in a row.

Therefore, there are now four positions available on QUT Guild Council. The Positions are:

  1. Creative Industries Faculty Councillor (1)
  2. Creative Industries Faculty Councillor (2)
  3. Health Faculty Councillor
  4. Business Faculty Councillor

For those who do not know, a QUT Guild Faculty Councillor is elected to represent the interests of their faculty at Guild Council.  The position is voluntary, and two people from each faculty can represent their fellow students. The responsibilities as prescribed in the QUT Guild Regulations are as follows:

(R43.1) Councillors shall be responsible to Guild Council for:

a. circulating information from the Guild to students enrolled in their faculty as required;

b. representing the views of students enrolled in their faculty to Guild Council;

c. liaising with relevant members of the Executive Committee regarding issues of students enrolled in their faculty; 

d. promoting the Guild amongst students enrolled in their faculty;

e. monitoring issues of students enrolled in their faculty both within the Guild and the University and advising the Executive Committee and Guild Council on developments and needs in this area;

f. acting in accordance with the Constitution and Regulations; and

g. carrying out such other duties as from time to time may be prescribed by Guild Council.


If you are interested in applying and representing your student body for the remainder of 2020, please find the application at this link.
