Forensic Audit Survey

We want your opinion! 
During the May 2015 AGM, a motions was passed suggesting AUSU have a forensic audit performed for the previous 6 months. Given that so few members were at the AGM and an audit would require spending membership money, we are polling members to ask their opinion.

Elections Forums

There is a 2015 By-Election Forum herelisted under the public forums.  

Make note, you must log in first using your AUSU log in info. 

Members may use the forum to ask questions of the election candidates, or they may ask questions of AUSU regarding the election process. Make note, any questions not related to the elections will be removed.
