SFPIRG is an independent, student-funded society. To ensure that our work reflects the ideas and values of the student community at SFU with whom we work, SFPIRG is managed by a student-directed Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is charged with guiding the direction, vision, and growth of SFPIRG. The current Board of Directors’ term started in May 2020 and will end at the end of April 2021. See below to learn more about our Directors!

Applications are reviewed by our Board, who make the final decision about appointments to vacant positions.
