Why does SABVC have elections?

SABVC is conducting elections to uphold the principles of representative democracy among the student members of Bow Valley College. We need our student members to choose their representatives who will advocate for their interests, voice their concerns, and make decisions on their behalf.

Elections within SABVC are essential to ensure accountability, encourage diverse perspectives, and empower students, while also promoting transparency, progress, and checks and balances within the organization.
