CSI’s Highest Authority is our Student Board of Directors

CSI is governed by our Board of Directors comprised of current students of Conestoga College. Directors hold office for one-year terms that begin in May, but they can be re-elected for multiple terms.

BOD elections happen every winter semester

CSI hosts a general election every winter for each director position. Interested students must fill out a nomination package, be a student in good standing with a minimum 70% GPA and get 10 peer signatures in order to successfully apply.
