The Co-Presidents are the main elected positions of the Rideau Students' Union, responsible for leading the union, coordinating and delegating with union members, Project Coordinators, and officers, and keeping the Board of Directors up to date with the status of the union. They work with the Board of Directors in some circumstances to make union leadership decisions, and decisions on the union's active responses, actions, reactions, and relevant affairs.
The role of Co-President replaced the roles of President and Vice-President in February 2022 (effectively May 2022 to elect new leadership), with the second revision constitution. Despite this, co-president-like leadership existed informally in the last executive cabinet before the constitutional revision.
The Co-President is responsible for leading meetings and the overall direction of the union, coordinating with officers and staff on union affairs, and relaying relevant information to the board of directors.
