Do you have a passion for student rights? A concern about post-secondary education funding? Increasing tuition fees? Student debt? Well, put your passion to work, represent your fellow students, and get some profound and meaningful life experience at the same time!

Each year your Student’s Association holds elections – a challenge to determine which students will represent you and your interests on dozens of boards, and committees throughout MRU, Calgary, Alberta and even Canada.

You can get experience advocating for a large community of students while running a multi-million dollar non-profit organization before you even graduate. You can make your mark at MRU, give back to the community that has supported you throughout your post-secondary education, and get some solid experience in governance, representation, finance, meetings, team-building, collaboration, leadership, and self-discovery.

Nominations for executive positions open on December 2, 2013 and run until February 10, 2013, giving you plenty of time to think about it.

If you want any information on running in the elections, we have you covered! The independent Chief Returning Officer will be hosting an optional information session on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 in Council Chambers (on the 2nd floor of Wyckham House) from 12:30-1:30PM. The nomination package includes a nomination form, a copy of your election platform, your photograph, two authorization forms, and a copy of your unofficial transcript.

If you think you have what it takes to improve student life here at MRU by serving and representing your student community, then think about running for an executive position! If this job isn’t for you, but you know someone who is passionate about serving students, then nominate her or him!

There are currently four executive positions you can run for. Full-time credit student sat MRU who has a GPA of at least 2.0 are eligible to run for an executive position. There are currently no openings on Students’ Council for part-time governors, but if this is something that interests you, then please check back in the fall.

Nomination packages are due to the SAMRU reception desk in Z222 (the second floor of Wyckham House) by February 10, 2014.
