Meet The 2016-2017 Executive Team
Featured Coordinator Positions
Being part of the SMA Business Development program has made me realize that I can discover and apply skills that we don’t practice in class, to actual businesses in my community. I have learned to work efficiently with a team towards a common goal, devise an organized marketing plan, and improve my communication skills with my peers, my account, as well as with the rest of the members in the Business Development program. I have learned a lot about improving my own skills, as well as working with others, but most importantly, SMA has reminded me to set bigger goals for yourself, because the extent of your knowledge and capabilities are endless!
My position as this summer’s social media coordinator allowed me to gain useful knowledge and experience in the utilization of online platforms. Being able to present the various sides of SMA (via Facebook and Instagram) has taught me so much more than I had anticipated!
My experience so far as a communications coordinator has been amazing! I currently blog about fashion, travel and lifestyle on Ko-morebi, therefore the transition to blog for the student marketing association felt like second nature. With the remainder of the year ahead of me, I’m excited to see what information we can relay to the student community.
Getting the opportunity to be involved in an SMA project has been valuable experience because I got to apply skills and knowledge hands on, working directly with Alta Vista Animal Hospital. The project manager position helped develop my organization, strategy, management, and communication skills as leading a group of unique individuals requires taking strategic approaches and actions towards achieving a goal as a team. Also I have learned a lot and met great people along the way!
It has been an unforgettable opportunity to meet the other inspiring people that have similar goals and dreams. The leaders are enthusiastic about passing down their knowledge, and really work on helping each of us grow as professional individuals. I feel privileged to be working with real companies based in Vancouver, and know that the experience I have gained will stay with me as I take my next steps into my career
