SRC Internal Clubs Structure
New roles within the SRC Clubs, effective September 2016.
If your activity is an SRC Club, the main positions will be the ones outlined below*. The older positions have been removed from the LEAP program (e.g. President, Vice-President, Treasurer, etc.) according to the changes made to the SRC Clubs Manual: Internal Club Structures. The new roles were updated in the fall of 2016.
“The new club structure is meant to move away from the hierarchical implications of titles such as president and vice-president. The new structures are much more effective in helping clubs function and making leadership opportunities more accessible to all students”. –SRC Clubs Manager
For questions regarding these changes, please contact the SRC Clubs Manager at email@example.com.
For activities added before these changes, you will still see the older titles on your LEAP (President, VP, Treasurer, etc.).

- The Club Representative acts as the main correspondent between the club and the SRC, as well as the club and the student body. Responsible to initiate and organize club meetings and activities to the benefit of all members involved.
- The Co-Lead works with the Club Representative to initiate and organize club meetings and activities to the benefit of all members involved.
- The Alternative Lead may take on the role of Co-Lead in the absence of any designated Co-Lead.
