Election Roles

Student Directors of SAKC

The Student Board of Directors is composed of 5-7 elected board members. The position has voting rights on the highest decision-making authority board of the Association.

The purpose of the position is to hold the Executive Council accountable, but also ensure that the needs of the student body are communicated and addressed. The Directors receive training and professional development, not only in Student Government, but in all levels of government including municipal, provincial, and federal to ensure a well-rounded understanding of the post-secondary education political climate.

The Director position is offered $50 per board meeting and assistance with benefits if you are a member of the SAKC Health and Dental Plan.

SAKC Elections are held once during the academic year. Each candidate has to be a returning student for the following school year.

They may run for re-election for the next years since there is no limit term limit to serve the board, as long as they are an enrolled Keyano student.

Directors are expected to attend monthly board meetings. They are responsible to communicate and get feedback from specific student programs and demographics, to attend SAKC events, to support the Association, and to attend Academic Council meetings.
