Council

Who run the world? Council do! That might be overstating things, but you know, we do things around here. We’re students just like you, and if you’re really interested in what we get up to, come to our Wednesday evening meetings, happening twice monthly during the school term.

DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION WITH COVID-19, COUNCIL MEETINGS ARE NOW TAKING PLACE VIRTUALLY.  MEETING LINKS CAN BE FOUND BELOW

What is Council?

AMS Council, also known as Student Council, is the governing body of the AMS and is made up of student representatives chosen in Constituency elections (elections in Arts, Science, Engineering, etc.), along with the AMS Executive and student representatives from the Board of Governors and Senate.

All AMS Council members follow the Council Handbook, which serves as a guide, as well as offering background for those interested in what Council is, what we do, and how things work around here.

Another way of getting a good understanding of Council is by attending meetings of Council. Meetings take place every second or third Wednesday evening, at 6 pm, in the Michael Kingsmill Forum (Room 4301) in the AMS Student Nest. Meetings are open to all, and there’s even food!

If you would like to make a statement to Council, please notify Joanne Pickford, the Administrative Assistant (joannepickford@ams.ubc.ca), or show up early to the meeting and speak to the Speaker before the meeting is called to order.

Here is the agenda and supporting documentation for the next Council meeting:
