NZUSA Presidents Elected For 2003

Fleur Fitzsimons (currently Victoria University Wellington Students’ Association President), and Rosamond Connelly (currently Otago University Students’ Association President) were elected as Co-Presidents and Victoria University student Camilla Belich was elected National Women’s Rights Officer.

“It’s really great to have been elected and I am looking forward to next year. Student debt is still a major issue, and a key focus for next year will be lobbying the government to increase access to student allowances,” said Connelly.

“I am really pleased to have been elected NZUSA Co-President. In 2003, NZUSA will be pushing the government to address the student loan crisis in a meaningful way and ensure that access to allowances is increased”, said Fitzsimons.
