Join the UWSA leadership team: President nominations re-opened

Are you the next UWSA president?

The UWSA is looking for a dedicated person to step into the crucial role of Staff Association President, where you can gain leadership experience, support members, and represent the voice of staff as UWSA spokesperson.

We've re-opened nominations for president until October 24. We encourage all members to think about running for this position or nominating someone you believe in.

Being UWSA President is a three-year commitment. The first year, you'll receive training as president-elect. The second year, you'll lead the Association. In the third year, you'll mentor other leaders as past president. The year as president is a full-time secondment with your regular salary plus a generous stipend equivalent to 10% of a USG 13 role.

Progress Pride Flag stickers on their way to all employees

The intersex-inclusive progress pride flag

The Faculty Association and Staff Association have teamed up to print and distribute more than 5,000 pride flag stickers to employees. Posting your sticker somewhere visible in your workspace is one small way to show your support for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in the wake of the hate attacks of June 28 targeting that community. We hope that thousands of pride stickers displayed all over our four campuses will help send the message that all members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community belong at Waterloo.
