It is mandatory that class representatives represent their class at Faculty Council, SMSS meetings, Dean’s lunches and Feedback forums (“Bear Pit Sessions”) and report back to their classes on these meetings and all SMSS activities. Updates will be given to their classes at a minimum of once per month and it is a requirement that the Class Representatives check their emails at minimum once per day to ensure time sensitive emails are forwarded out accordingly. They will also sit on the Year Promotions Committee for their respective class, which meets each semester to assess individual student academic performance. These positions will sit on the Academic division with a Council member role in Council. They will attend Council meetings as a voting member.

Med I: Med I will each have two located in Saskatoon. The first year class representatives will also be responsible for organizing the Med I Charity Date Auction, with the support of the Fundraising representatives, as well as the annual CoM Christmas Formal. They will update the Student Handbook at the end of their term.
