4.       Recommendations of 2012 PSA Committee, for ratification by the members of the PSA
a.       Cessation of PSA membership for Association members
                                                               i.      From the minutes of the Committee 20th of September: Given that membership of the PSA is automatic once a student enrolls in a postgrad course at UWA, the committee was asked when membership should cease. The committee determined that membership ceases once the student has a ‘disenrolled’ status.
b.      Terms of Office for PSA Committee members
                                                               i.      Given that some postgrads may complete before their committee term has ended, the 2012 committee was asked to determine whether the elected rep would still be eligible to remain as part of the Committee. The committee determined that they were.
