ABOUT US

Structure

The Students’ Association is a non-profit collective body comprised of elected students, permanent staff members and volunteers. Our purpose is to serve the students of Medicine Hat College.

The governing body in the Students’ Association is Council. During summer there are 4 council members and during the school year there are 7 council members dependent on FLE. This group of elected or appointed students helps make strategic plans and decisions.

Serving with council is the Executive Team. These individuals are also elected or appointed and serve from May to May. The Executive Team positions are:

President (reports to Council), Vice President Internal (financials & academic advising), Vice President External (promotions, clubs, advocacy).

Serving with the Executive Team are the permanent team members:

Executive Director, Administrative Assistant, and Health and Wellness Coordinator as well as the Crave Food & Beverage. These employees provide mentorship to the Executive team. They give advice and use their own experience to problem solve and plan for the future.
