INTERESTED IN STUDENT GOVERNMENT?
Five reasons to consider getting involved in the senate
If elected you’d be a voting member of the NAITSA Senate, which is the “governing body” for a multi-million dollar organization. No matter what career path you choose, being a board member is valuable experience. Aside from the first-hand knowledge of how meetings are conducted, participation on the Senate will promote skills such as accountability, decision-making, communication, teamwork and more. Elected Senators also approve NAITSA’s annual budget and bylaws.
If elected you’d be a board member for every student in your ‘Electorial Zone’. As a member of the Senate you’ll have the opportunity to be a leader by listening to the needs of students and working with other board members to address them.
IMPROVING YOUR SCHOOL
Every institution has room for improvement. If elected you will be a key person NAIT wants to hear from, to get the students’ perspective. NAIT wants to know what students think and they will come to the senate to find out.
You’ll find that you automatically have your ear to the ground and that will help you make the most of your NAIT experience.
It’s a safe bet that you want a good job when you leave NAIT. Most students don’t realize how employers make hiring decisions. Here’s a hint: Two NAIT grads… same diploma… same grades… but one was a “Senate board member” for their NAIT Electorial Zone. Guess which one gets the first call for an interview. And your Senate position will appear on your co-curricular transcripts.
