Frequently asked questions
If you are wondering what is involved in being a committee member, or about the annual election process, vist our Committee FAQ page and our election process FAQ page. Committee members are also occasionally co-opted to a position.
Sometimes postgraduate members on the MPA Executive Committee complete their studies and leave Monash University part-way through their term of office on the MPAEC. Where a vacancy arises on the MPAEC between annual elections, postgraduates can be coopted to the committee. For information about the cooption process, email the MPA Executive Officer, Jenny Reeder.
