Annual General Meeting
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. It's important to attend the AGM for a few reasons:
- New student governors 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
Take a look at the posted agenda, peruse SAMRU's bylaws, see who is running for governor, and register to attend. Everyone who registers and attends gets a $10 Wyckham House food court gift certificate and a chance to win one of two $100 Best Buy gift cards, and the grand prize of $500 cash!
