The Funding Council

The Funding Council members (AKA WEEF Class reps) have the critical role of deciding where WEEF's funding goes. They typically meet three times a term: twice to hear presentations by those who have requested funding and once more to vote on which proposals should be allocated money. Any bylaw changes must also be approved by them. As class representatives, they act as liaisons between the student body and WEEF, helping to identify student concerns and ensuring that WEEF funding goes to student-chosen priorities.

If any of the following information is incorrect, please inform the WEEF Director.
