Here, you can find any official information regarding the elections of the AUCSA 2024-25. Every year in May, the AUCSA Board of the next year is elected by the General Assembly (GA). This event is accessible for all members of the AUCSA. During the GA, all candidates may speech and answer questions from the members. A proposed board is then presented by the Elections Commission, after which the voting procedure starts. The candidate with the most votes will fill the board position in the next academic year. This year’s GA will take place on May 14th.

AUCSA Elections Countdown








The Elections Commission (EC)

The 2024 Elections Commission (EC) is composed of one ex-AUCSA Board member and two independent members. Together with the current AUCSA Board, the EC is responsible for organizing the Elections of the new AUCSA Board of 2024-25. The EC reviews the incoming applications, conducts interviews with the candidates, and asks specific questions during the Elections Debate.

Based on all applications, interviews, and performances during the debate, as well as through their own expertise, the EC will propose a Board during the Elections GA. This proposed Board consists of the candidates they deem the best fit for the AUCSA Board of 2024-25, both in terms of their individual skills and our perception of how they would work together.

This year, the EC consists of Francesca, Mateo Abrahami and Misha van Beusekom!

The current AUCSA Board is solely involved with the promotion of the elections timeline and procedure. They do not have access to the motivation letters and have no influence on the interviews, debate and proposed Board.

Hello! I’m Francesca, third year, humanities – film and environment.
I am very excited to meet all the AUCSA applicants in the upcoming weeks and help create a great board for next year!
I have been a part of many committees over my three years at AUC as well as doing my own board year on the AUCSA Board year as a CAO. The Board year experience has been a huge highlight of my time here and I cannot recommend it enough.
I look forward to working with my fellow Elections Commision members and the current AUCSA Board!

Hello everyone, my name is Mateo and I am honored to be a part of the EC this year. Throughout my AUC journey I have focused most of my free time on the performing arts, dancing, and music by being part of Onstage and AUCanDance. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of all the big performances in these years. Next to that I have also been a part of the Ambassador team, and other AUC affiliated teams.
I am looking forward to see all the applications to AUCSA this year!

Hi everyone! My name is Misha and I’m a third-year science major from Ethiopia and the Netherlands. I’ve lived most of my life in Addis Ababa but also spent six years in New York.
I was on last year’s Right2Education board as a Teacher and Academic Co-Coordinator where I formed and oversaw the teaching teams that provided English and Dutch lessons. Before that, I was also a board member for a non-profit called Funding Bright Futures where I also helped recruit volunteers.
I’m super excited and honoured to form a part of this year’s Election Commission! I can’t wait to get to know all of the candidates and form the new AUCSA Board together with Francesca and Mateo!
