About the Office of Vice President Internal:
The Vice President Internal (VPI) is second to the Presidency, acting in Presidential office if the President is incapable of fulfilling their duties or if the President were to resign. The VPI acts as a signing authority and is thereby entrusted with the CASG finances. Furthermore, the VPI is responsible for the inner workings of CASG.
The VPI is also responsible for coordinating all academic student representation at Carleton University and on Student Senate. It is the VPI’s responsibility to recruit, train and manage all of CASG Representatives. In other words, the VPI is responsible for making sure that the CASG General Election runs efficiently. It is the VPI’s responsibility to ensure that all CASG committees meet as required, and that the committees are actively filled.
The VP Internal is responsible for contacting both the Faculty Coordinators and their respective representatives (First Year and Departmental) on a regular basis. The VPI ensures that CASG representatives are fulfilling their responsibilities as outlined by the CASG By-Laws.
The VPI ensures that the proper meeting process is maintained throughout Student Senate and CASG General meetings. The VPI is responsible for calling to order, facilitating, and arranging the CASG General meetings. That is, formulating and distributing the agenda in advance, scheduling, room booking, ordering food/refreshments, keeping track of attendances, hiring the secretary and chair of Student Senate, and ensuring the recording of minutes.

About the 2014/2015 Vice President Internal:
Hello Ravens! My name is Katrina Crocker, and I am currently in my fourth year here at
Carleton University with a double major in Law: Law, Policy and Government & Political
Science. Although originally from Mississauga, I chose to come to Carleton last year because it
is one of the few universities in Canada to offer such a comprehensive undergraduate program
in law. Outside of my studies, I work as a PASS Facilitator for the University and serve as the
President of the Carleton Law Society (CLS) and as a Co-Captain for the Carleton Moot Team.
Communication itself is the main issue I want to address with the Carleton Academic Student
Government (CASG) this year. Having a Representative Training Program will continue to
be beneficial so that those who sit on Council can know what is expected of them, and how to
effectively represent their constituents. There needs to be more participation outside of Council,
though, through committees and team meetings. Finally, there should be meetings held regularly
amongst the executive and the faculty coordinators to ensure open communication, and heavy
promotion to make sure students here at Carleton are aware of CASG and its purpose.
I am very excited to serve as your Vice President Internal on CASG for the 2014-2015 year, and
look forward to working with the rest of the Executive, Coordinators, and Representatives in
addressing your academic needs!
