What does a rep do?
Reps do attend meetings regularly, but it is not all they do. For the most part, as a Rep you will have a few meetings each term. Outside the meetings is when a lot of the Reps’ work is done by finding out what students on your course or department think about their education, collecting feedback (both positive and constructive!) and staying in touch with other reps and the Union. You’re also free (and encouraged) to start campaigns!
Overall, Reps get to talk with people a lot, in meetings and on campus, but you do get to read meeting documents as well.
