As defined in CAR’s founding statutes, CAR operates entirely through a portfolio system. At the beginning of every board year, the CAR board decides which portfolios they will be managing throughout their year, and announces this to the student body. It is imperative to CAR’s functioning that the communication between themselves and the students is as optimal as possible, and the transparency of the portfolio system facilitates this well.
Each portfolio has a “Portfolio Officer” that takes the lead on projects and communication surrounding that portfolio. This makes it easier for students to find out who to approach regarding any portfolio-related suggestion, concern, or opinion which they may have. All students are invited to approach us for any such reason, because we are always interested in hearing from the people we are tasked to represent.
