Dear Concordia Students, it’s a pleasure writing to you. The reason for this letter is to position my platform as a candidate running for the JMAS presidency 2020-2021. I wish to give you insight as to where I believe this association should be headed in the near future. Having been on JMAS for two consecutive terms I’ve noticed patterns, some good, others needing a second glance. JMAS’s future revolves around providing the larger body of Concordia Accounting students with the tools needed to achieve great success.
As a relatively young student, I’m well attached to the needs of our current students. I’ve been listening and learning as to what issues most of us face and what solutions are needed. I’m not here to hand you the solutions, I’m here to collaboratively work through them with all of you. Fundamentally, JMAS’s sole purpose is to integrate itself within the Concordia accounting community and to provide additional value to all of those within this community.
Now, how exactly are we going to add additional value? Well there are three means JMAS use to add value, we do it through academic events, networking events and lastly through social events. Academically, I plan to make tutorials more flexible by having them live streamed, I will also push for the publishing of PowerPoints alongside with solutions. In addition, I plan to bring in CPA students to teach our accounting students how to tackle ACCO310 and advanced accounting cases. Moreover, they will also be helping with the hosting of tax workshops which will be teaching students how to file their own taxes!
Networking wise, I plan to set up networking workshops to get you ready for recruitment season. Having overlooked the recruitment process for Concordia accounting students, I’m well positioned by knowing the ins and outs on how to maximize your chances of getting recruited. In addition, I will push the agenda to have more opportunities within the industry sector, seeing as though there’s many opportunities we’re currently not capitalizing on.
Lastly, I plan to make JMAS a family you can rely on. You will have my ears at all time and those of my team members. To facilitate this communication I wish to have bi-weekly Reggie meetings where any student can come and to talk to anyone on the JMAS team.
Collaboratively let’s capitalize on opportunities, and strive to be recognized for what we truly are, great business leaders!
You can count on me, now can I count on you?
