Run for a position on CSI’s Board of Directors

One of the fundamental pillars at Conestoga Students Inc. is our Representation service. Annually, student leaders are elected by the general student body to advocate for the best student experience possible at Conestoga College. These elected student leaders make up the CSI Board of Directors.
