Join the Board

The Griffith University Gold Coast Student Guild is governed by a Board of students elected by you. 

The Board consists of 10 student members who are responsible for advocating the interests, needs and wants of the Gold Coast student body. These elected representatives serve as the student voice on campus. There are currently 5 (2 year term) vacancies on the Board, to be filled by Gold Coast students via nomination and election. If you are interested in representing your fellow Gold Coast campus students, we encourage you to submit a nomination form using the button below.

There are 7 positions up for election this year which include: 

  • 5 vacancies for full 2-year terms
