What is the Executive Committee?
The Executive Committee consists of five student executives who work to help SAMU achieve its goals, ensure the success of the organization’s projects and advocate on behalf of MacEwan Students. They develop and implement their own initiatives, which are inspired by you and aimed at making changes both on, and off, campus. Executives are elected in the winter semester of each year and work full-time with SAMU for the duration of their terms. Each member of the Executive must advise the Executive Committee and Students’ Council on their particular portfolio.
