UNA Board of Directors
The UNA Board of Directors provides oversight, develops policies and sets out the strategic priorities of the society.
In 2020, members of the UNA voted on new bylaws to increase the number of elected directors to seven. Two UBC-appointed observer-participants and one AMS-appointed observer-participant are allowed to attend and participate in Board meetings.
UNA Board of Directors meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (subject to mitigating factors). Residents are invited to attend all open sessions.
Procedures and expected timelines are outlined in the Board Rules of Procedure (PDF).
The UNA Board of Directors has adopted a Code of Conduct Policy applicable to UNA Directors and to all persons appointed by the Board to UNA committees or task forces, as well as any individuals appointed or designated by the University of British Columbia or the Alma Mater Society who attend and participate in UNA Board or Committee meetings.
The Policy provides general guidance on the standards of conduct required, including guidelines on conflicts of interest, processes to raise concerns and breaches of the Policy.
Members of the University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA) elect seven members to the UNA Board of Directors every three years. The most recent election ran from November 8 to November 30, 2021. The next UNA Election is scheduled to take place in fall 2024.
