Board of Directors

The P. R. Community & Student Association (Sadleir House Facility) is governed by an independent Board of Directors elected during our Annual General Meeting (generally in the early winter of each calendar year). Directors normally serve terms of two years and come from a variety of areas to represent the communities we serve. In recognition of the vision and foresight they showed in bringing the P. R. Community & Student Association into existence, as well as the substantial financial support they provide, the majority of the Board of Directors must be Trent University students at the time of their election. This ensures that Sadleir House shall always be under the control of Trent students.
