Congratulations to the following elected student leaders for 2023 who will serve a one-year term beginning Jan. 2023, through Dec. 2023.
The E-board President shall be the leader and voice of the student body; provides inspiration and motivation; sets the tone at all meetings; creates a personal vision and mission for term in office; oversees members on the E-board; ensures the Constitution, policies, and procedures are correctly followed; collaborates with stakeholders; and creates proposals that will positively increase student life experiences.
“As ASB President, I intend to foster the strengths of the SCU community and represent student passions. My journey with ASB began as Treasurer a year ago, and it was exciting to see our student leaders and clubs in action. My aim is to continue supporting the growth of our professional network and student leaders,” said Joanna.
The E-board Vice President (VP) shall assist the ASB E-board President in its duties and responsibilities.
The VP also serves as the Presiding Officer of the Student Senate and ensures Senate duties and responsibilities are met; holds meetings; shares information; documents and reports meeting minutes and outcomes; assists the Senate with following the ASB Constitution and SCU policies and processes; and executes practices that are ethical and fair.
“I am a 6th Term DC student and will be starting Term 7 in January 2023. I’m an international student from Canada and used to row for Team Canada before retiring in 2020 due to injuries and COVID changes. I really appreciate the time I had in sport and the opportunities it provided me, it has taught me to be passionate about the projects I commit to and has provided me the opportunity to be critical and realistic about management. I was a DC senator in my early terms and through that experience hope to fill this new role in an impactful way. As the new ASB VP I hope to help bring about some changes that help the student experience and improve everyone’s time here at SCUHS so that we feel proud of our time together and while we are studying we get the most of ourselves and feel supported along the way,” said Tim.
The E-board Secretary shall record all minutes and ensure documents are communicated to appropriate individuals, properly stored, and remain accessible; respond to emails; aid students with following appropriate policies and procedures; update all websites, documents, and other related materials with accurate information.
“Hello, my name is Kristeen (Kris) Shamas and I am excited to be your 2023 ASB Secretary! My goal is to make communication between the students and ASB quick and easy. As your new secretary, my plan is to put the students needs first. I hope to continue providing an open environment for students, and answer any questions you may have. As co-president of ICPA, and event coordinator of CalChiro, I believe I will fulfill my goals, and continue to make SCU a better place,” said Kristeen.
The E-board Treasurer shall serve as the primary manager of ASB funds; monitor, communicate, and update ASB’s financial account via Quickbooks; provide students with ethical and professional advice on spending proposals including forecasting balances; ensure fiscal procedures, guidelines, and policies are followed; and work in partnership with the Council of Clubs and Organizations (CCO) Chair.
“I am extremely grateful to be given this opportunity to serve as Treasurer. I hope to make your experience at SCUHS memorable. I promise to stay on top of emails and be there for students,” said Eira.
The E-board Community Liaison shall collaborate with and remain updated on information related to university-wide and student specific events and activities. This may occur between various offices such as the Alumni Affairs Office, Marketing Department, and Admissions Team as well as student clubs and organizations. This member shall answer questions about ASB goals and aspirations and serve to support students, including student clubs, boards, and committees, with achieving goals by being a reliable source of information.
“I am honored to have been elected as your 2023 Community Liaison! I look forward to strengthening the connections amongst our SCU family and boosting our sense of community,” said Madison.
Student clubs and organizations are a key component to increasing knowledge, exploring interests; and connecting and networking with like-minded individuals. It is the responsibility of the CCO Chair to ensure clubs and organizations are receiving proper support to accomplish their goals as well as meeting active club requirements. See CCO Handbook for more details (See Article 6 for more information on CCO responsibilities).
This position can be held by two separate students if deemed appropriate by the E-board and designated ASB advisor(s) (see Article 9 for Adviser Responsibilities). Each Chair is entitled to equal pay.
“My name is John Paul Krueger but I usually go by JP. I’m a 4th Term DC student and served as CCO Chair last year. I am so excited to continue working with all Clubs and Organizations on campus! My hope for 2023 is that our student body grows closer than ever,” said JP.
