WHAT IS THE BY-ELECTIONS PROCESS?

1.       Anyone enrolled in the School of Accounting and Finance (AFM, Math-CPA, Bio-CPA, and CFM) for September 2019 in 2A and up are eligible to run! The only exception is for the position of President, where the student must also expect to be on campus for his/her study term for at least 8 months that year. Candidates who applied in the general election are welcome to apply again in the by-election.

2.      The elections process formally starts with the submission of an application for the position you wish to run for (one position per person), the links for which can be found below.

3.      Once applications are approved by the elections committee (you will receive an email along with further rules and regulations), the campaign period begins. During the campaign period, candidates can promote their platform (online only) and SAF students can participate through the elections forum (http://safstudentvote.freeforums.net/).

4.      Once the campaign period ends, voting will begin. During this period, all SAF students (including MAcc) can vote (or abstain from voting, i.e. not vote for any candidate) for all positions as well as any referendums. The vote will be anonymous and held online through Feds (the link will be provided at a later date through uwafsa.ca and AFSA’s Facebook page).

5.      Subsequently, the votes will be tallied and the successful candidates will be contacted through email while the final results will be announced on www.uwafsa.ca.

6.      If there are still positions open after the by-elections, the remaining executives will be appointed by the current Board of Directors.

Spring 2019 AFEF Endowment Fund and AFSA Levy Fund

The Accounting and Finance Endowment Fund (AFEF), formerly known as the Accounting Endowment Fund (AEF), has and will always be for the betterment of the students of the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF). AFSA is no longer the organization that is the sole fiduciary of the fund, and is instead managed by the AFEF Board of Directors, who evaluate proposals each term.  Students enrolled in the SAF contribute $20 to the fund for each term they are on campus. Contributions made to the AFEF are fully tax-deductible and tax receipts are issued by the University of Waterloo prior to each tax season through Quest. For those students who do not want to contribute AFEF, refunds are now available for the period of Spring 2019: https://uwaterloo.ca/forms/finance/endowment_request 

Students also contribute $30 to the Accounting & Finance Association fee (previously voted in by referendum by the SAF student body during 2014-15). It should be noted that you are not eligible for conference subsidies should you request a refund. Furthermore, additional restrictions may be added up to the discretion of the AFSA team. If you have any questions or concerns about the AFEF or refunds, please do not hesitate to contact the VP Finance, Mansi Patel, at vp.finance@uwafsa.ca.

You can request a refund for the $30 contribution to Accounting & Finance Association here from May 14 – May 31st (midnight). The first step is to state your reasoning for requesting a refund and the second step is to provide your information as well as confirm your acknowledgement of the consequences of the refund. Note that you cannot participate in any AFSA events or services, including the conference programs, if you have opted out of the fee. (AFSA runs its Goes for Gold program which subsidizes 80% of a conference fee and travel, and its subsidy program which subsidizes up to 75% of a conference’s registration fees.)
