Get Involved


There are a few ways you can get involved with the Students’ Union:

  • Board of Directors: The purpose of the Board of Directors is broadly to oversee the operations of the Students’ Union, making financial decisions and providing direction to the Organiser on matters relating to events, services and advocacy. They are also the face of the students’ union: they represent the organization at events and engage students in issues affecting the student body. Directors also help engage other students in campaigns that are being championed on a provincial scale by the BC Federation of Students. There are various positions on our Board of Directors, and individuals are elected to these roles at our Annual General Meeting every October. For more information on these elections, check out this page.
  • Sub-committees: The Students’ Union will seek out individuals from the membership to advise on sub-committees for specific projects. These subcommittees help provide students perspectives on various issues that the Board of Directors or College will make decisions on. For more information on getting involved on a sub-committee, please contact organiser@mycmsu.ca
  • Volunteer: We always appreciate willing hands who are able to support us on an as-needed, or one-time basis. Whether you’re helping set up an event, distribute posters, or creating content for social media, our operations are greatly enhanced by the generous support of student volunteers. To learn about upcoming volunteer opportunities, please contact organiser@mycmsu.ca
  • Student Clubs: Are you passionate about something and want to connect with other students about it? Talk to us to find out how you can start a club at the school, and even receive funding for events and supplies.
