Student members of the Global Indigenous Group, GIG, are voting online for their leaders for the upcoming year. Votes must be completed by Wednesday, July 8th at 11:59 PM.
GIG is a student-led organization of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples who seek to celebrate and share global Indigenous heritages, sovereignties, memories, and knowledges. GIG is an integral part of the FIU Global Indigenous Forum.
The call for nominations resulted in a fine set of candidates for President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Included in the online election ballot are candidate statements describing their background, interests and qualifications.
Official student members of GIG are those registered in Orgsync.com, the FIU Council of Student Organization's online management system. Students who participated in Orgsync in the past year are entitled to vote. An email with the web link was sent to members June 27.
