For those of you who don't know me, my name is Nicolas Crevier. Though if I'm honest, I much prefer to go by Nick. I am a third-year finance major with a minor in data intelligence and this year I hope to be elected as your CASA president. I was introduced to CASA like many of you, through frosh. Ever since then I've attended dozens of events and more importantly, I've met countless wonderful people. For those who've had the opportunity to attend in person events, believe me when I say I want nothing more. And for those who haven't, all I can say is that I hope to be given the chance to make it up to you.
It goes without saying that this past year has been rough. Each and every single one of us has had to give up something they loved, from those Tuesday night beers to those late nights at the library. I can't promise to bring all those things back, but I can give you my word that I'll try my best to give you an unforgettable university experience.
This past year, I held the role of VP Finance for CASA and it couldn't have been more different than I had expected. Nevertheless, it allowed me to Witness the perseverance of 243 student leaders that made an online year something to be proud of. Something that had never been done before. Though with more collaboration and more determination, I strongly believe that we can surpass your expectations and offer you better events and better workshops to develop your professional skills, your network and hopefully help you blow off a little steam.
As your CASA President I have three objectives that I look forward to accomplishing during my mandate. The first is to increase financial and operational efficiency in an effort to do more with every dollar. My second goal is to increase the quality of academic support. Lastly, I plan to increase student engagement so that every student has the opportunity to learn beyond the scope of their degree and meet people that will help them for years to come.
That being said, my true goal in taking on the President's role is to improve student life, allow each subsidiary to reach their maximum potential and provide students with the utmost value.
