SAMRU Annual General Meeting
What is it? The Students’ Association of Mount Royal University (SAMRU) holds an AGM of active members of SAMRU in each academic year, at which the membership receives the audit for the last fiscal year, appoints auditors for the current fiscal year, considers and votes on any proposed bylaw changes, and receives reports from the governance, representation, and operations departments. Any active member of SAMRU (i.e. credit students enrolled at MRU) in attendance can participate in and vote at the AGM.
Why should you attend? Have a say in your association! The Annual General Meeting is an easy way for students to become involved in the governance, representation, and operations of the SAMRU. The AGM is an important and fun way to have a voice in your organization.
