People

From the elected Board of Directors to the hired Executive Council and Service Council, they are the talented people behind the Commerce Undergraduate Society.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is a group of elected individuals responsible for maintaining the direction of the Commerce Undergraduate Society. Formed in 2009, the Board fosters a long-term strategy and maintain this strategy and the general mission of the CUS. It currently comprises eight year representatives, a representative for the UBC Senate and two representatives to the Alma Mater Society, as well as the President and Ombudsperson, both of which also sit on the Executive Council and the former of which is the CUS’s third AMS representative. One member also doubles as the Chairperson. The Board also approves the annual CUS budget and budgetary amendments while continually evaluating all CUS activities. There are many committees within the Board responsible for maintaining and streamlining larger topics such as budgeting and policy development, all of which include members-at-large and Executives. The Vice-Presidents of the Executive Council are selected and appointed by the Board to carry out day-to-day operations of the CUS. Board meetings occur once a month; please contact the Administrative Director at kassandra.tran@cus.ca for more details. All members of the CUS are welcome to attend. Please see “Meetings and Minutes” for agenda information.
