At Concordia, we have a ton of clubs that focus on a huge variety of interests for students all around campus. Although most clubs are open to anyone, there are a few that focus on a specific study area for students. For the Management program in particular, we have the Concordia Management Council. In order to find out more about the Concordia Management Council, we had the President of the CMC, Zac White, who also happens to be the Faculty of Management Representative on the CSA General Council answer a few questions.
What is the Concordia Management Council (CMC)?
Zac White: The Concordia Management Council, or CMC, is one of Concordia Student Associations’ student unions. Its purpose is to represent and hold events for all students in the Faculty of Management. It is made up of five positions:
1. President – Zac White
2. Vice President of Finance – Nic Dove
3. Vice President of Operations – Breanna Grolway
4. Vice President of Marketing – Emma Neufeld
5. Vice President of Communications – Alex Roihjert
Being the Faculty of Management Representative on the CSA General Council also provides me with the chance to attend monthly CSA meetings in addition to CMC meetings. On top of the five selected positions on CMC, every student in the Faculty of Management at Concordia is considered a member at large and can attend any CMC meeting and share their thoughts and opinions, however, they are unable to vote.
What is the purpose of the Concordia Management Council (CMC)?
Zac: The purpose of the Concordia Management Council is to represent and hold events for all students in the Faculty of Management at Concordia. We aim to provide students within the Faculty of Management with the opportunity to have their voices heard, and with events and fundraisers to support their academic goals. We hope to continually come up with new plans and ideas to improve the Bachelor of Management program as a whole.
In addition to questions asked about the background of the Concordia Management Council, I’ve also obtained more information regarding the CMC’s annual Networking Conference from VP of Communications, Alex Roihjert.
What is the CMC Annual Networking Conference, and how will it benefit Students?
Alex Roihjert: The Concordia Management Council’s Annual Networking Conference is a yearly event that CMC has been hosting for the past thirteen years. The purpose of our Annual Networking Conference is to provide students with the opportunity to meet and build long-lasting relationships with local business professionals. It also opens up opportunities for students to seek internships, and get advice in choosing the direction or path to take with their professional business career. The annual conference mainly seeks to give students exposure to professionals, and an opportunity to connect for future business purposes.
This year’s CMC Annual Networking Conference will be on Saturday, March 18th 2017 at the Derrick Country Club, with doors opening at 5pm and a three course meal being served afterwards. There will be a variety of different business professionals to network with in all areas of emphasis for Management Students. Along with the chance to network with business professionals, there will also be a number of speeches, including former LA Kings player Darwin Bozek who is now controller for the province of Alberta. This event is a huge opportunity and is highly recommended for Management students to attend!
Be sure to say hello to your Concordia Management Council members around campus!
