With my experience as BUGS VP External and director of the 2011 Biochemistry Games, I plan on organizing many small events alongside the big SSMU events we’ve come to love and enjoy. I will work to build stronger relationships between SSMU and McGill’s faculties and departments. With my knowledge of McGill media, I’ll keep you informed about what SSMU can do for you, and hopefully get you involved! Creating a strong McGill community is my motto and my goal. Vote SAM: for a SSMU that works for you.
I am currently one of your SSMU C&S Representatives and would love the opportunity to represent you on SSMU as VP Clubs and Services! I’m really passionate about making the student experience especially rewarding through involvement in clubs and services. Backed with experience and knowledge from my involvement in this portfolio, some of my initiatives are to revamp 4th floor office allocation and implement sustainability strategies in our building. As President of the Indian Students’ Association, I know it’s not easy to run a club, but I’ll strive to make it an enjoyable experience! Vote Chaini for Change!
I am a third year Political Science student. I have a diverse background in event planning and two years of experience working with SSMU. I have specifically worked with the past and present VP Internal, allowing me to fully understand the responsibilities and obligations of the position. My experience includes; PSSA Battle for the Charity, Model United Nations Entertainment Coordinator, Faculty Olympics Chair, 4floors organizer and the SSPN SSMU events committee. My platform is based on diversifying SSMU events and working on rebuilding McGill’s community. I promise to bring my creativity and dedication to this position. Just imagine the possibilities.
From my 3+ years of working with SSMU’s clubs, services, and Environment Committee, I know what the SSMU has to offer, but also that its procedures are daunting. I understand the problems students face navigating bureaucracy and room bookings from my experience as front desk receptionist, and through leadership of sustainability initiatives like the Plate Club, I know how to green the SSMU. I will increase student space, see concrete sustainability projects through, create platforms for groups’ needs to be communicated, and encourage student initiatives that go beyond the Shatner building. VOTE EXPERIENCE – On your side: Cooper for clubs!
My extensive experience as a Senator and Councillor prepared me to excel as VP University Affairs. I established a working relationship with both McGill and SSMU through different initiatives such as Academic Amnesty, livestreaming Senate, and re-establishing the undergraduate society of my faculty.
My pragmatic approach concerning November 10 and the Judicial Board helped to create compromised solutions.
Goals include getting Senate live streamed, making the G.A. more democratic, ensuring safe space community, improving the Student Handbook, making McGill more functionally bilingual, and serving as an effective liaison between students and administration.
Vote for unity and leadership.
I’m your SSMU VP Finance & Operations and served as Funding Coordinator 2010-2011. I’ve spearheaded the student-run café, increased funding for clubs, and integrated sustainable accounting policies at SSMU. My experience will help to overhaul the SSMU Bureaucracy to make the SSMU more relevant by empowering student representatives to be more proactive. Through collaboration with new food services in the building, I will integrate sustainability with the eco-clamshells. Lastly, I will engage staff through stronger human resources policies/practices and empower student involvement by creating research opportunities within SSMU to increase practical experience.
Experience. Make it work for you! VOTE PATEL!
