The CA Student Union runs on student power! Join a committee or working group and get plugged in!
The CA Student Union is 100% run and organized by students and allies passionate about social justice. Everyone should feel empowered to participate and contribute in some way, big or small. The easiest way to start getting involved is to add yourself to the email listservs for the committees or working groups below. (We recommend limiting the amount of groups you are part of, as this will prevent burn-out and allow responsibilities to be divided evenly amongst everyone.)
* Please note, committees are those groups which have officially been voted on at past conferences to become as such, while working groups are those that have been created but not officially voted on to become committees.
