Here’s what your SFSS Board of Directors has been up to during the month of November:
The SFSS Board of Directors has had a fulfilling November!
They hosted numerous festive events at the Burnaby, Surrey, and Vancouver campus with Winter Warm Up and Winter Wellness. Free pizza, hot chocolate, festive treats, and a holiday photo with Santa were provided! In addition, Mental Care Packages were handed out to students during SFU’s Dog Therapy. Be sure to follow the SFSS Events Committee’s new Instagram account to stay up to date!
Next, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh toured the SFU Burnaby campus and interacted with students alongside Giovanni HoSang (President). This led to a meeting where SFSS Staff, President, and Jasdeep Gill (VP External) discussed lobbying priorities of the SFSS. Giovanni HoSang (President) and Jasdeep Gill (VP External) also attended on behalf of the Society, the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade Luncheon and Mayor of Vancouver City Address where they interacted with many of the key stakeholders and lobbying partners in Metro-Vancouver. In Addition, Shina Kaur (VP University) attended the Canadian Resources for Academic Material Panel where she represented the SFSS during Open Education Resource (OER) dialogue. Lastly, the Board learned how to leverage their professional presence in a workshop from Katherine at Lazaruk Consulting.
We hope you enjoyed all these events, activities, and support in the advocacy efforts. Good luck to all in your studies for the upcoming final exams! The Board wishes everyone a Happy Holidays!
