Introducing the new GUPSA Committee for 2013
Following the AGM last Thursday, GUPSA has a full Committee for the first time in a number of years, certainly since VSU was introduced in 2006! We will be bringing you more details about them soon but this post will serve as a quick introduction, listing the positions and the people elected to them.

Vice President (Coursework) – Jason McNeil
Treasurer – Min Jun Kim
Indigenous Students Officer – Jonathan Fabila
Honours Students Officer – Rumaisa Bilal
International Students Officer – Josette Niyomwungere and Katrine Sonnenschein jointly

Queensland Conservatorium of Music Coordinator – Paul Jung
Queensland College of Art Coordinator – Lynden Stone and Sara Manser jointly
We farewell and thank Maggie May, outgoing President of GUPSA 2011-2012, and active committee member since 2007. Without Maggie’s energy and commitment GUPSA likely would not have survived, and we gratefully acknowledge her commitment and all her hard work over the last few years.
We also farewell 2012 committee members, Tinashe Shito, Nathan Coordinator, and Michael Ayala, International Students Officer. Both Tinashe and Michael have finished their studies at Griffith and moved on, Michael returning to Ecuador. We thank them both for their commitment and work in 2012.
Stay tuned for more information on the new committee and GUPSA’s plans for 2013
