Each term a new executive is elected by <a href="members.html">the
membership</a>. See the <a href="exec.html">Executive</a> page to find
2002-03-11 15:39:54 -05:00

<section title="Can I join?">
If you are (or have been) student, faculty or staff at the
<a href="http://www.uwaterloo.ca/">University of Waterloo</a>, you
can become a full member of the CSC. Otherwise, you can become an
affiliate member, meaning you can't vote or hold executive
office. Membership costs a mere $2 (Canadian) a term at the time of
this writing, but may change in the future.
