We are looking for several members-at-large as well as several representatives from club and services executives for SSMU Interest Group Committee! This is the committee that meets every two weeks to approve new club applications, review changes to clubs/services constitutions, and recommend changes in clubs- and services-related policies.
This is a great way to make your voice heard and learn more about how the SSMU bureaucracy works, especially if you’re involved with any SSMU clubs, services, or other groups.
Please email your application (a cover letter with a brief statement on why you’re interested, and your CV) to Enbal Singer, Interest Group Coordinator, at email@example.com by Wednesday at 5pm and feel free to email Allison Cooper, Vice President (Clubs and Services), at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!

Community Engagement Committee
Community Engagement Committee is seeking members-at-large!
This committee previously had the mandate of allocating the SSMU Charity Fund, but that fund is now being overseen by another committee so this year will be a chance to try something new.
The intention this year is to bring together groups from around campus that are involved in community relations activities and find ways to support one another, promote events, and find new ways to encourage students to get involved beyond McGill campus.
If you are interested in sitting on this committee, please email SSMU VP External Robin Reid-Fraser at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Community Engagement Commissioner Inna Tarabukhina at email@example.com, with “Community Engagement Committee” in the subject line. Please include a short paragraph about yourself and why you are interested in sitting on this committee. Please also include an attached copy of your CV.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call Robin at 514-398-6798.
