The last meeting of the Kwantlen Student Association was held on the Cloverdale campus, also know as KPU Tech. Did you know they have horses at Cloverdale (for the farrier program)?
Here are the FIVE things you NEED to know from this week's’ Council:
Four KSA staff members - Nicki Simpson, Policy and Political Coordinator, Kendell Kitt, Clubs and Outreach Coordinator, Stephanie Chee, START Coordinator, and Kelsey Silk, Records Coordinator & Archivist - presented to Council about their roles. Nicki and Kendell accused Stephanie and Kelsey of being keeners, because they made powerpoint presentations. But really, how do you do a presentation without slides?
The meeting schedule for the Spring semester was set. Council will meet five times in the spring, including a special meeting on April 3rd. Council meetings will be on January 26th, 2018 at 10 am, February 23rd, 2018 at 10 am, March 23rd, 2018 at 10 am, April 3rd at 10 am, and April 6th, 2018 at 10 am.
Vice President, Student Life Jay Reedy presented his report on attending the Canadian Federation of Students Annual General Meeting in Gatineau, PQ. His report was not favourable, but President Tanvir Singh did remark that having a good number of representatives from dissident schools did allow for the minority to hold the executive accountable.
A representative from Vancity attended to present on the state of the KSA’s financial investments. Earlier this year, Council approved a Credit Union Policy, and began the process of transitioning all account from our previous bank to Vancity. It is the belief of the KSA that credit unions generally have ethical and environmentally sensitive investment portfolios that include investing in the local economy which supporting jobs for KPU students and graduates.
Four students were appointed to student member positions on the Student Life, Finance and Operations, Governance and Environmental Sustainability committees. Did you know that all the committees of the KSA have student positions? You can apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and directly influence decision making at the student union.
The full minutes of this meeting, and all other KSA Council and Committee meetings, are available after approval on kusa.ca/committees.
