Why is the MSA Board important?
The MSA Board plays a fundamental role in improving working conditions and ensuring members have a strong voice at MacEwan.
Do I need prior experience?
No, you do not need prior experience. All members of the MSA Board are offered labour relations training and office staff are always on hand to assist with questions and concerns.
Will I be granted time away from my position?
As stated in the Collective Agreement 8.0.3, elected members of the MSA Board are granted up to seven (7) hours per month to attend MSA Board meetings and/or other meetings scheduled on behalf of MSA. (President, Vice-President, and Past President have increased release time.) See role descriptions below for the approximate volunteer hours per month.
What’s in it for me?
Not only will you meet new colleagues and play a fundamental role in improving working conditions at MacEwan, you’ll also gain new skills through hands-on experience. And serving on the MSA Board will look excellent on a resume!
