Associated Students Board of Directors

The A.S. Board of Directors consists of 16 student leaders. Your A.S. Board of Directors is elected by SMC students every year in the Spring Semester.

The board's main responsibilities are to represent student interests to SMC administration and to approve spending A.S. funds. The A.S. Budget comes from the $19.50 A.S. Membership Sticker fee that you pay during registration every semester or session.

So, knowing who your A.S. representatives are and what they do is important to make the best use of your money to serve the interests of the students of Santa Monica College. See below documents and flyers.

The A.S. Meetings are considered public meetings, therefore anyone can attend the A.S. Meetings. Stop by and attend some A.S. Meetings to find out what your board is doing for the students of SMC. See below-meeting flyer.

If you are an A.S. Member ($19.50 sticker), you may get involved in your student government in various ways, either through A.S. Positions or ICC Clubs. See below flyer.
