NZUSA Easter change

NZUSA Easter change

NZUSA Press Officer Mike King

The structure of the New Zealand University Students' Association executive may be substantially changed at Easter Council in Wellington.

President Ross Mountain will propose the present resident executive be replaced by a smaller executive whose members need not reside in Wellington.

He has suggested the executive consist of a president, an international vice-president, an education vice-president, and two general executive members.

A senior office secretary would act as NZUSA secretary, office manager, and would be responsible for finance.

This executive would meet about four times a year.

A number of officers would be appointed to assist the vice-presidents and handle such areas as cultural affairs and work camps. They would not be members of the executive.

Mr. Mountain said communication between meetings would be maintained by the circulation to executive members of copies of all outward letters and inward memos.

"This structure would enable people with experience ana enthusiasm to work for NZUSA and not be precludeo from doing if they live out of Wellington."

Mr. Mountain will also ask that NZUSA be financed on a student levy basis rather than on the present system of compiling a budget and levying constituents accordingly.

One NZUSA executive member opposes the proposed structural changes on the ground that it would be expensive to fly members to Wellington for meetings, that there would be less incentive for members to work, and that the president's powers of initiative would be inordinately increased.
