Officers of the Alliance

At each annual general meeting, member student associations elected three officers to coordinate the day-to-day activities of the Alliance, under the supervision and guidance of the board of directors. Collectively, the officers are responsible for leading the development of the vision, mission, and strategic plan of the Alliance; for attending all meetings as resource-people to the board; for ensuring the compliance of the Alliance with its statutory obligations; and for providing whatever other support the board requires.
