Hexagram Committees

Hexagram is governed by a series of committees which includes an executive committee, a programming committee, a student grant committee, antenna committees and the board of directors.
  • Executive Committee

    The executive committee is made up of the co-directors, associate directors from each antenna, two regular members at large from the two antennas, two students (UQAM and Concordia), and one member-partner with a two-year mandate.

    The executive committee meets every six weeks to oversee the smooth running of the network, allocate budgets, develop and propose membership policies, approve programming, do promotion, support and generate new activities and research groups, help liaise between members and their students as well as with local and international collaborators, and aim to harmonize operations across the two antennas. Each committee member is responsible for sitting on another committee.

    The board of directors approves the network’s strategic plan, and ensures the adoption of appropriate legal procedures (MoUs, equipment budgets, transfers, etc.) between university partners. The board examines the network’s financial situation in relation to support for antennas. Additionally, it approves the co-directors’ candidacies and, upon the executive committee’s recommendations, ensures the healthy functioning of the network.
