Sit on a Committee

CSU 52 has a variety of committees to become involved with, from putting on social events to helping fellow CSU 52 members. Our committees have planning positions that meet formally, or you can sign up to support a committee on a casual basis that does not require a dedicated commitment.

CSU 52 currently has the following committees in place. Nomination for formal committee membership takes place annually at the January General Meeting. Participating on a committee is a great way to become involved with and learn more about the Union, meet new people and network, and support interests and causes that you care about.

If you are interested in participating on a committee, please submit your expression of interest by clicking here.
