I am running to be your ISSS President for the 2016-2017 year. I have served as your Vice President Administration and Finance for the past year. I have delivered balanced budgets for both Fall and Winter semesters. I believe that in a year where Sci5 funding is up for renewal that a President with a strong grasp of finances is required to effectively market the renewal of the program. As well I have played an important role in mediating office disputes, which is an important skill for managing a large organization such as ISSS. As for my personal goals for ISSS, I will focus on building a strong team atmosphere over the summer, such that the entire executive and council teams are prepared to meet the following goals to the best of our ability: improved community engagement, fostering growth of departmental organizations within the faculty, and a commitment to fiscal responsibility and sustainability.
