Event Details

The Student Governing Board is a policy-making Board of Directors, responsible for directing the SAMRU mission and vision. Governors are elected or appointed from and by SAMRU members (i.e., students).

Governors are expected to devote a time commitment of 10-15 hours per month over 12 months to Board activities, which include attending meetings, volunteering within SAMRU in order to broaden general student understanding of the organization, and participating in additional committees that feed results up to the Student Governing Board for refining and approval.

Governors receive honoraria for work groups (not for board or committee work), but the real reward is a deeper understanding of board governance—a complex yet integral form of leadership.

If you’d like to get involved but you aren’t sure you have the experience, don’t worry: we’ll provide all the training you’ll need to be successful.
