Executive Council

Led by the President, the Executive Council is made up of two Vice Presidents: a VP Internal, and a VP External. The Executive Council works together throughout the year to provide services, events, and activities for GPRC students. All executives are elected to their positions on a yearly basis by the student body. 


To run for Executive Council, you must be a full-time or part-time student who is registered in a regular day program, and a student with good academic standing. 

Being an SAGPRC Executive

Student Executives enjoy many benefits while gaining valuable experience. On an average day, a SAGPRC Executive could be representing the student body in meetings with GPRC administration, lobbying the government for GPRC students, networking with other student leaders at a conference, preparing for any of the many campus events, meeting with GPRC students, or accomplishing any number of other exciting tasks.

If elected you will receive a competitive salary with benefits, part of your education paid for and a laptop during your elected tenure. You will also have the opportunity to travel the country for conferences and events; all while you network, build your skill set, and most importantly, have fun.

President John Tiede 

Hello, my name is John Tiede. I am the current president of the students’ association of Grande Prairie Regional College. I was the previous Vice President External during the 2020-2021 academic year, and I am finishing my Business Administration diploma with a focus on financial services. I grew up with a large family in the Peace Region and take pride in my local community and the citizens that make it such a great place to live and study. There are a lot of unique challenges facing students these days and I am proud to advocate for their needs and concerns. I sit on several boards and councils including the College Board of Governors, Academic Council, and Workforce Advisory Council to ensure the students’ voices are heard. With the exciting transition into a Polytechnic Institution, I am optimistic for the future of Grande Prairie Regional College and its students.

VP Internal Brooklyn Broaders

 I was born and raised in Grande Prairie, this will be my 4th year at the college but my 2nd year in Business Administration majoring in Accounting. My favourite part of the job so far is all the connections I’m making and meeting all sorts of different people that work for the college. A fun fact about me is that I’ve played volleyball for the last 9 years and was assistant coach in high school.
