The governing body of the VSAOC is made up of elected student representatives, who form Student Council. The Student Council is empowered to make all decisions and take all actions on behalf of the Association, in accordance with the Constitution and By-Laws. The student body is able to influence these decisions through participation in elections, referenda, general meetings and by making suggestions to the elected representatives. General Elections are conducted each March, with bi-elections in the early fall to fill any vacant positions.
