CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR GRADUATE STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE
The IVSA is governed by its Executive Board, which consists of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Technology Advisor, Visual Studies Editor, Graduate Student Representative and nine elected Board Members.
The following IVSA Executive Board position is now open for nominations and self-nominations:
- Graduate Student Representative (GSR)
The Graduate Student Representative is a full-fledged board member position, with all the rights and responsibilities of any other board member position. The GSR serves a one-year term, with a second year of service contingent on Presidential re-appointment if appropriate (i.e., the member is still a student).

Board members are expected to participate in Board discussions and decision making in an ongoing manner through online communication, and to play an active role on various IVSA standing and ad hoc committees.
Nominations and self-nominations will be accepted until 29 July 2018. All nominees must be members of the IVSA.
