Presidential Portfolio


  • Chairing the executive committee (5VPs)
  • Setting the agenda for Council
  • Acting as the spokesperson for the society
  • Attending many lobbying meetings and liaising with lobby groups
  • The primary representative to the University
Major issues:
  • Negotiating relationship with UBC-O and the UBC Graduate Students' Society. The GSS feels marginalized within the AMS, and UBC-O likes to assert its independence.
  • How to handle and manage all the varying lobbying positions?
  • Which of the hundreds of things the AMS does is a priority?
