AMS Assembly is the highest legislative body in the undergraduate student government. All members of the AMS are welcome to attend Assembly where they can move or second motions, speak for or against any motions and, in the event of the Annual General Meeting, may vote on motions being considered by the Society. A place where you, as an AMS member, can take an active role in the development of the decisions that affect your student experience.

It is constitutionally empowered to direct the Executive, Council or Board of Directors as they carry out their duties consistent with the best interests of AMS members.
