Description

Welcome to Executive Training! What do you need to know?

  • At least one current executive member will have to attend this session as part of your registration. The President is preferred, but we welcome any and all of your executive team!
  • The session will take approximately three hours from start to finish.
  • You should bring a pen, a notebook, anything you need to take notes!
  • The session will involve time for networking, so bring business cards or group materials if you have any!
  • We will be providing a meal. If you have any restrictions, please indicate in your registration!
  • If you show up more than 15 minutes after the beginning of the session, you won't be able to attend.

We will begin check-in at the time specified on the event. There will be networking time before the presentations start, as well as a break in the middle which is also a great time to make connections with other student group executives!

As part of the new Executive Training Program, we will offer a variety of breakout sessions on different topics. As part of your RSVP ticket order, please sign up for ONE of the following:

  • Leadership 101: learn the basics of self awareness in leadership, adaptive leadership practices, and what to expect from your year. Recommended for first-time Presidents and executive team members. Presented by the Student's Union Leadership & Recognition Team.
  • Self Care and Burnout Prevention: learn about how to recognize burnout in yourself and others, and discover strategies for self care to make the most of your year while being mindful of your health needs. Student group members and executives are particularly susceptible to burnout; this session will help you manage stress and plan for working through tough times. Presented by the Students' Union Peer Support Centre.
  • Managing Conflict - Making Conflict Constructive: learn additional skills for managing conflicts and disagreements in your student group, and how it can make your club even stronger! Practice having difficult confersations and making the most of disagreements between members. Presented by the Students' Union Leadership & Recognition Team.
  • Beyond Diversity & Inclusion: In this interactive and collaborative session, participants will learn and deepen their understanding about the barriers people face at the university and wider community from an anti-oppressive lense. What are the structural barriers that face students and members of our communities? How do we work together to not only create better clubs, but to create a better world? This introductory session will act a conversation starter and get participants thinking critically about the world and their place in it, and leave them with strategies for developing welcoming environments for their clubs. Presented by the Alberta Public Interest Research Group (APRIG).
  • Facilitating Effective Meetings: learn more about how to maximize your meeting time with your clubs with agendas, Parliamentary meeting structures and strategies. This session will cover Parliamentary Procedure (Robert's Rules of Order) to enable you to run an efficient and fair meeting in a large group setting. Presented by the Students' Union Discover Governance Team.

Make sure you sign up fast! Sessions have a tendency to fill up quickly.
