MCUCSA is a volunteer organization. See below for more information on our leaders, members, and how you can get involved.
The executive board is tasked with running the business of the association, representing the association externally, carrying out the decisions of the general meeting, and reacting to changing situations. The general meeting gives a mandate to the executive board, elects board members and determines operational guidelines for the upcoming term – that is, the plan of action and the budget. For more information on each board position, click the position title below.
