Board of Directors

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 was appointed in May 2019 and will retire at the end of April 2020. See below to learn more about our Directors!

Interested in joining our Board of Directors outside of the regular nomination period in the Spring semester? Send us an email at and we’ll get you set up with an application form! Applications are reviewed by our Board, who make the final decision about appointments to vacant positions.
