Do you have a passion for student rights and serving your peers at Mount Royal? Or are you invested in post-secondary education funding, tuition fees, and student debt? Maybe you’re eager to gain invaluable experience in media and public relations?

Turn your passion into action and run for a position on the Representation Executive Council (REC) at the Students’ Association. Student representatives are elected, full-time paid employees at SAMRU that represent the interests of students on the Mount Royal campus as well as externally to all three levels of government. Representatives also lobby to make a difference for students, dealing with issues like tuition and loan policies across Canada or mental health initiatives on your very own campus.

As a student representative on REC, you can experience advocating for a large community of students, make your mark at MRU, give back to the community that has supported you throughout your post-secondary education, and get some solid experience in governance, representation, finance, meetings, team-building, collaboration, leadership, and self-discovery.

Do you think you have what it takes to improve student life at MRU by serving and representing your student community? Think about running for a REC position! If this job isn’t for you, but you know someone who is passionate about serving students, then nominate them!

The nomination period is open from December 14, 2015 until February 8, 2016 at 4:30 PM., and all four positions are open! If you, or someone you know, would like to experience the satisfaction of serving your peers, consider a position on the Representation Executive Council.

If you want any information on running in the elections, we’ve got you covered! The Chief Returning Officer (CRO) will host an optional information session on January 20, 2015, from 12:30 – 1:30 in the Council Chambers (on the 2nd floor of Wyckham House). This is a good opportunity to discuss the nomination process with the elections officials, or to pick up a nominations package!
