ECSA is run by students, for students. That's why our members (Edinburgh College Students) get to elect the Full-Time Officers who lead the Association.
However, it would be a bit of a tall task for them to do it all on their own, especially beacuase they change every year. So the Association employs a group of staff to help run the Associaiton and support Officers to achieve their aims for the year.
Student led and professionally supported.
