The Student Council may, by resolution or Standing regulations, establish standing committees and ad hoc committees as needed, with powers and responsibilities determined by the Student Council, except for those expressly reserved to the Student Council as Board of Directors of the Union by the Quebec Companies Act. Individuals appointed or elected to these committees do not have to be Union Councilors or Officers. Members of such additional committees are not compensated for their services; however, the Student Council may, by resolution, authorize the reimbursement of expenses incurred by committees in carrying out their functions.
