My name is Simon Macleod and I am the current President of the Lazaridis Students’ Society. I am in my 4th year with a major in Finance and will be pursuing a minor in Economics and Women & Gender Studies. I have been an executive member of the Lazaridis Students’ Society for the past four years starting as a promotional representative in my first year. I moved up to become a Corporate Relations Manager before becoming the Vice President of Corporate Relations. In my year as VP Corporate, I achieved the highest sponsorship levels ever recorded in the history of our organization.
This year, since hiring the VP team and Executive team, our organization has done some amazing things. First of all, something I am extremely proud of is hiring the first ever VP of Technology Development across all Business/Economics Student societies across Canada. From this initiative, we have had the opportunity to fulfill another goal: to create a fully functional app. Our app, which can be downloaded on the Apple/Android store is designed to allow students to find more opportunities with the various events our organization or 22 clubs/ associations runs. We also have started and released the Discount Program which provided discounts for all students with a discount sticker on their OneCard. We are always adding more discounts to our program so be sure to check them out! Finally, we held our largest and most successful O-Day in the history of our organization. With over 850 people in attendance, I was extremely proud of our whole Executive team and Vice President Team for the work that went into the event.
Going forward, my main goal is to ensure I live up to my pillars of increasing inclusivity, student support, and community enhancement. I want to get more individuals involved with clubs, continually develop our app to make it more user-friendly, and ensure we provide the best possible support to our clubs. I think we have achieved great things so far, but there is always room for growth. I am very excited to see what else we can achieve in these upcoming months!
We are going to have a great year and I hope you are as excited as I am!
