What is the Board of Directors aka BOD?

The BOD is elected in the winter semester and their term starts in May and finishes in May of the following year. The Board provides ongoing ownership linkage with the student body, sets organizational policy in accordance with ownership needs, and provides oversight of operational compliance with policy. Within the Board there is a President and Vice President; these positions are the chief and deputy-chief representatives and advocates for the student body and are the leaders of the Board.

Saitsa’s Bylaws are the governing rules by which the organization operates.

What is a committee member?

A committee member’s number one focus is to provide student-to-student feedback in an area they are interested in. As a committee member, you’ll actively listen to agenda discussion points while communicating your own opinions, ideas, and interests all while supplying student’s feedback based on their experience at SAIT. Collectively committee members will strategize and decide as a united front on how to tackle student issues or opportunities at SAIT.
