Board of Directors

The CSA Board of Directors meets on alternate Wednesdays to discuss important issues facing students and how to address them.  All Board meetings are open to the public.

Each Board member works within the CSA’s welfare, image, and mandate, to defend and protect the rights and interests of students.  Board members assume the fiscal and moral responsibilities of being a Director for a not-for-profit corporation.  They are prepared and informed, ready to participate in all major decisions made by the organization.  Directors have a huge influence across campus and beyond, making decisions that affect the quality and type of services, events and campaigns (eg. tuition fees, anti-oppression, etc.) offered by the student association.  Directors also help to shape and build the student movement.


The CSA Board includes fourteen At-Large College representatives (elected, two per college), seven College government representatives (appointed), and ten student organization representatives (appointed).
