As defined in CAR’s founding statutes, the board operates through a portfolio system. Before the academic year begins, we divide the 7 portfolios between our members. This allocation is made clear to the student body (on this website and on our social media pages). It is imperative to CAR’s functioning that the communication between themselves and the students is as efficient as possible, and the transparency of the portfolio system facilitates this well.
Each portfolio has a board member responsible for it. This person 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 suggestions or concerns 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 elected to represent.
