SUPRA Council — Governance

Shortly after the General Election each year the Councillors-elect meet to elect Councillors to the offices of President, Vice-President, Education Officer, Secretary, Treasurer, and Director of Student Publications for the the upcoming Council term. Any member of Council may run for election to these positions but no member may hold more than one Executive position at one time.

SUPRA’s Executive consists of the offices of the President, Vice-President, Education Officer, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Executive ensures the day-to-day management of the Association.

All office-bearers prepare a monthly report that goes to Council. This is for transparency and accountability, but also to help all of Council remain informed of the work being done.

For the 2015-2016 Council term these offices are held as follows:

Co-Presidents
Mariam Mohammed & Kiriti Mortha

The President of SUPRA is the General Manager of the SUPRA offices, the Council spokesperson between meetings of Council, and the peak representative of the Association for all postgraduate students.
