Why is it important to attend the AGM?

Attending the AGM is part of SAMRU's accountability measures to its members. It's also the time when SAMRU members (MRU credit students) vote for student volunteers to serve on SAMRU's Student Governing Board, a group that oversees the organization, and for the Representation Executive Council (REC), a group of four students selected by the board and elected by students to fulfill represent and advocate in the best interests of MRU credit students.

It's important to attend the AGM for a few reasons:

  • New student governors are elected at AGMs
  • New REC members are elected at AGMs
  • Members find out what SAMRU accomplished the previous year
  • Financial auditors are appointed and audited financials are shared
  • Any recommended bylaws changes are approved
