Highlands and Islands Students’ Association chooses the MSL System to run elections

Highlands & Islands Students' Association

22nd February 2017 - The Highlands and Islands Students’ Association has selected MSL to provide the online Elections platform for use in their officer and depute elections held across their campuses in Scotland. Some 8,500 students in both higher and further education at the University of the Highlands and Islands will have access to the new voting facility.

Membership Solutions Ltd (MSL) is pleased to welcome the Highlands and Islands Students’ Association (HISA) to the MSL community as it chooses to use MSL Elections for their full-time officer and part-time depute elections. Both higher and further education students are encouraged to stand for and take part in the voting for HISA officer posts.

HISA officers represent all students across the University as well as its regional academic partners. They also work with external organisations such as NUS Scotland to ensure a national representation of their students, who are automatically members of HISA if they are aged 16 years and over and enrolled at one of their represented campuses. As well as representation, HISA encourages participation in a number of affiliated clubs and societies and runs a variety of events.

Graeme Kirkpatrick, HISA Chief Executive said "The role of our officers is vitally important in supporting and improving the lives of students at UHI.  We are therefore very excited to be using MSL and their online elections as this will help us promote the opportunities that being a HISA officer presents as well as encourage more of our students to participate in democracy."

Colin Watson, Chief Executive of Membership Solutions Ltd, added: “MSL is delighted to count the Highlands and Islands Students’ Association as one of its growing number of Scottish students’ organisations. We are also particularly pleased that the MSL System will be used to support student engagement in the Further Education sector, especially as the HISA officer elections will be the first opportunity many of their members will have to take an active part in democracy.”
