Computing Student Association
Due to the nature of a student association, there are many cases where a quick, small change to the operation of an association is beneficial to its members in the short term. Due to the requirements of changing a constitution, and the fast changing nature of the computing field, the Computing Student Association (hereby “The Association”) presents this document to fill the holes left by a fast moving industry, while keeping our constitution precise and accurate. This document shall never replace any article of the The Association’s Constitution, and should only exist alongside the existing clauses it provides.
The following positions are named positions within The Association – they do not have to be voted on at a General Meeting (although they may be, if the Executive sees fit) and may be appointed at an Executive Meeting. These positions may be held by members who hold Executive positions, if needed, and need not all be filled for a given semester. If a position is not filled, its responsibilities become those of The Executive as a whole.
The Executive also holds the power to name any officers or sub-committees as it deems necessary, which are then responsible for carrying out the task(s) they are given.
1. SCC Manager
The SCC Manager’s job is to monitor the contents and use of all resources available in the Student Computing Center (SCC). Alongside the Executive, the SCC Manager may suggest equipment purchases or replacements within the room. Furthermore, it is the SCC Manager’s responsibility to ensure that the room is kept clean and operational.
The Webmaster is responsible for the moderation of content appearing on The Association’s website. Time-sensitive matters like Domain renewals and hosting fees should be tracked and brought to the attention of the Executive well ahead of time by the Webmaster.
3. Project Manager
The Project Manager is responsible for the delegation of resources within the SCC to members who wish to work with the resources made available. The Project Manager also serves as a single point of contact for any projects the CSA is currently working on, and should have limited knowledge of all resources available.
4. Communications Manager
The Communications Manager is responsible for all relevant social media platforms that the Executive chooses to operate with to represent The Association. This includes the mentioning of upcoming events and meetings, as well as tailoring content to the assumed interests of The Association’s target audience.
5. Alumni Representative
The Alumni Representative(s) represent active members in the history of The Association, who wish to offer their opinions and experience to the current members. While this named position does not grant voting privileges in meetings (unless specifically requested by The Executive)
6. General Representative
General Representatives are members who wish to become more active in the association, but are either ineligible for available positions, or unable to commit the effort towards them. General Representatives are expected to attend meetings, to be actively involved in keeping the SCC open when they can, and to participate in events put on by the CSA.
