Allo UVic!

Welcome to a new board term, complete with new goals!

Starting this month, we’re launching monthly updates from the Board of Directors, straight to your screen! We have an incredibly exciting year ahead of us, as we’ll be launching plenty of new initiatives such as a Student Advocate position, as well as revitalizing old initiatives like Clash of Clubs (a debate among campus political clubs).

Before the UVSS is able to run all of our campaigns, events, and other fun stuff, we have to get down to the nitty gritty of training and planning. Currently the board is working on our strategic plan for the next two years of the society. Without a plan, we would have no direction, and most importantly, we’d have nothing to hold ourselves accountable to. Expect to see a neat document coming out soon outlining operational priorities for the society as well as the fun little bits everyone expects!

As an incumbent (last year’s Director of Outreach and University Relations), I don’t need as much training; this means I’m already hard at work. For me this has meant: spreadsheets upon spreadsheets, tracking and outlining goals for everyone, doing research on Student Advocate positions, selecting (and eventually ordering) all of our swag for this year, as well as working together with our board, businesses, and graphics team on creating the handbook cover for this year.

If you want to get involved with any of these initiatives, just shoot me an email! I would love to hear from you.

Now that’s just small recap of what’s happened and what’s to come, I’ve been Pierre-Paul Angelblazer your Director of Outreach and University Relations, signing off.

If you’ve got any questions do not hesitate to send them right to me at outreach@uvss.ca.

Have a good summer!

Pierre-Paul
