CS GSA News: about money and need for volunteers

Hello dear colleagues,

I have two important messages to tell you:

1. We need new people for TSSU steward positions. Our current stewards will soon leave SFU, and our Computing Science department can have up to 4 stewards.

TSSU steward is a paid position: $250 per semester for ~8-12 hours of work.

What does it mean to be a steward? Your main responsibility is to attend TSSU meetings (benefit: they always have free food there), which happen twice per month and about 2 hours long. Also you might be responsible to handle small tasks related to TSSU operations from time to time.

Our TSSU steward Tom Torsney-Weir thinks this is one of the best jobs in the world. I trust his opinion.


2. We need new person for CS Grad Buddy Coordinator. Our current Buddy Coordinator Tom Torsney -Weir wants to step down from this position.

Grad buddy is a volunteer position, but a very rewarding one.

I myself being an international student remember my excitement when I received a letter from Tom. I thought: this is it – I am accepted to SFU for real.

You should think about Grad Buddy Coordinator as of person who helps to create a strong bond between the generations of grad students.

It takes only about 4 hours or work per semester.


If you are interested in these positions or have any questions – please send email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


P.S. In other news: our tea social is coming soon and TSSU strike vote today!
