Meetings

The MPA Executive Committee (MPAEC) meets monthly except January. Observers are welcome. For details of the next meeting email Jessica Van Gent.

MPAEC Cooptions

From time to time, postgraduate members on the MPAEC complete their studies and leave Monash part-way through their term of office on the MPAEC. Where a vacancy arises between annual elections, postgraduates can be coopted to the committee.
