There are lots of big and small ways to make a difference on campus, but if you’re looking to affect real positive change for your fellow students that also gives you valuable work experience and looks great on a resume, you might be interested in becoming a governor.

The Student Governing Board is the highest decision-making body of SAMRU, with an important role in directing the organization. Becoming a governor gives you the chance to lend your voice to decisions ranging from long-term business decisions to yearly budgets, and you’d be working with likeminded students who are as engaged and community-minded as you are!

The job requires a time commitment of only 10 – 15 hours/month. While governing is voluntary, governors receive an honorarium of $200/month for their involvement in related work groups. In order to serve on the Student Governing Board, you must:

  • Be a Mount Royal University student enrolled in at least one credit course;
  • Commit to the work and mission of the Students’ Association of Mount Royal University;
  • Be willing to serve on committees and work groups;
  • Attend approximately twice-monthly Student Governing Board meetings and assigned committee meetings, generally held on Monday evenings after 4:00pm;
  • Attend Annual and Special General Meetings;
  • Attend membership meetings as assigned;
  • Support, and participate in, Students’ Association fundraising events;
  • Fulfill all other volunteer requirements as outlined in the Students’ Association’s policies and procedures;
  • Maintain a cumulative G.P.A of 2.5 or higher.

If all of that sounds like you, then don’t sleep on this opportunity: send in your application as soon as possible to Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter and resume to the hiring committee. The application deadline is 3:00pm on July 5, 2017. Visit our jobs page for more details on this role.
