It’s hard to believe that another month has already gone by and exams are right around the corner. I would like to start off by once again thanking all our representatives who attended our first council meeting. While it may be hard to see sometimes, the work and hours you put in really does help create a better Carleton for our students.
At our last meeting we approved our annual operating budget and made a series of changes to our Financial Policy. This will allow us to continue our programming goals for the year and continue to increase the presence of CASG on campus. We still have vacant seats on our council. To nominate yourself please email our Vice-President Internal, Katrina Crocker, with your name, student number, and a small write up (less than 100 words).
This past Thursday we hosted Dr. Samantha Nutt to come and speak about her experiences as a Founding and Executive Director with War Child Canada. She left behind a lot great strategies about taking visions from simple ideas to tangible actions. It was a very enlightening and well-attended event.
As for what our future holds; our committee will be meeting next week, an increased scholarship fund will be back in the new year, and we will continue to work with CUSA and other groups to bring speakers you want to hear from to campus.
Best of luck to all who are finishing up assignments and studying for midterms. The holidays are almost upon us, so hang in there!
President, Carleton Academic Student Government
