“You having fun and smiling…that’s the best part” -Sahakian 2020
I am running for CASA VP Events because I want give students a university experience to remember. As great as the planning an event can be, the music, location and decorations, I think one of the biggest factors to a successful event is not the amount of people that come, it’s the amount of happy people that leave.
If elected, I want to help create events that provide students with value. Giving students something more to school than just the classes they attend. Whether it is through the social events to help them unwind, or the networking events that can land them their dream job, I want to be able to give those opportunities to students. Along with this, I want to implement a new initiative to allow more students the opportunity to get involved without having the full responsibility of being on an association. Providing more students with the opportunity to get involved is very important to creating a stronger community within JMSB. Lastly, I would like to increase the sustainable efforts for events. Ensuring all events, from 5x8’s to the Halloween party and Business Banquet, create less waste overall. There have been a lot of efforts implemented that I would like to keep up and better throughout next year.
I would also like to continue the focus of RFID and its further implementation. Working with a new company to ensure that all major events are using this technology. It allows us to reduce single use paper bracelets that would be needed for entrance and it helps create a safer event since the student’s information is uploaded on the RFID card. I strongly believe that RFID is the next step for all events at JMSB and I am prepared to take on that challenge.
So why vote for Chelsey? I am passionate about this position, I understand the amount of work necessary and the time it takes to plan the events. My experience being involved this year has allowed me the opportunity to plan bi-weekly social events and help with large events open to the whole school. I have been able to excel in many areas and better my time management and project management skills. I am confident in my ability to help give you the university experience you can enjoy.
