The P. R. Community & Student Association (Sadleir House Facility) is governed by an independent Board of Directors elected during our Annual General Meeting. In recognition of the vision and financial support they provide in bringing the P. R. Community & Student Association into existence, the majority of the Board of Directors must be Trent University students at the time of their election.
