Learn more about our positions and their descriptions below, as well as the testimonials from previous executive members, detailing their experience from being on the team!
I got involved with SUSK this year because I wanted to make strong connections with fellow Ukrainians across Canada. Being Project Director provided me with an amazing opportunity to represent my wonderful local Ukrainian community in Saskatoon. – Connor Moen, Project Director, (2015/2016)
Vice-President External is one of the positions on the SUSK Executive that can be shaped by your interests and passions! In my case, I worked on creating a USO Tool Kit which aims to help you, our student members, successfully run your university student organizations. The kit will be launched at the Congress (stay tuned!).
I have also helped with organizing this year’s congress in Saskatoon, which has been a very exciting and challenging job. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you at the Congress in May!
In addition, I have worked on Ukrainian Youth section of the SUSK Position Paper, which is a document SUSK issues each year to reflects its position on various Ukraine-related issue.
So, as you can see, the position of a VP-External can really be what you make it to be! As long as you are working towards developing and strengthening Ukrainian-Canadian student community in whatever way suits you best.
I encourage you to apply for a SUSK executive position at this year’s Congress. I promise you will be signing up for a lot of fun experiences, personal growth and new friendships! – Darya Naumova, External Director, (2015/2016)
My favourite part of being on the SUSK Executive is having the ability to not only meet, but to build friendships with Ukrainian students across Canada. We come from various areas of study, yet bond over endless jokes during our exec meetings and the common interest to do good for the Ukrainian diaspora. – Andrea Dacko, Vice-President West, (2015/2016)
