Representation committees work directly with members of the Representation Executive Council and provide them with valuable insights and assistance with their representation portfolios. This might mean helping with campaigns like the “Get out the Vote,” or advising on an academic committee, or helping the VP Student Affairs spread the word about awesome student events (that you get to go to for free!). Volunteering on a representation committee is ideal for students looking to be more involved in representation activities at MRU.
There are currently two representation groups recruiting for the 2020-21 academic year:
Vice-President Student Affairs Advisory Committee (VPSAAC)
The Vice-President Student Affairs Advisory Committee (VPSAAC) is a body of students who assist the Vice-President Student Affairs in representing student interests on non-academic issues at MRU. Members of VPSAAC advise the VPSA and assist them with their priorities and goals. Members of VPSAAC gain valuable skills and experience, including practical meeting skills, the chance to work with university professionals, and the opportunity to represent student concerns alongside the Vice-President Student Affairs. This is a volunteer position with an awarded honorarium.
Please send a resume and cover letter outlining why you would be a good fit for this committee to email@example.com. Post will remain open until positions are filled.
Indigenous Student Advisory Committee (ISAC)
The Indigenous Students Advisory Committee (ISAC) provides periodic advisory support to the Representation Executive Council (REC) in order to strengthen their representational work. REC has been directed by the Student Governing Board to represent student interests to Mount Royal University, external student organizations and all levels of government. The ISAC will advise REC members individually and collectively on issues that pertain to Indigenous students within these realms. This is a volunteer position with an awarded honorarium.
Please send a resume and cover letter outlining why you would be a good fit for this committee to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What other ways can I get involved?
The Students’ Association offers tons of ways for you to get involved! If this isn’t the committee experience you’re looking for, you can find more available committee work with SAMRU. If you’re interested in other volunteer opportunities, you can learn more about volunteering here.
