October 28, 2022 – (St. Catharines, ON)
Upon meeting with our Board of Directors late yesterday, October 27, we share the resignation of our Vice-President, Student Engagement, Safa Khan, due to personal circumstances. This resignation will formally take effect on November 4, 2022. We fully respect this decision brought forward by Safa and wish her well in personal, academic, and professional endeavours.
“Safa joined the GSA in October 2021 as Vice-President Student Engagement during a Fall recruitment and was then re-elected into the same position through the Executive Elections in March 2022. When Safa first joined our team, she brought in eagerness and excitement for event planning alongside experience of planning events on the Brock campus,” reflects GSA President, Haley Myatt. “We thank Safa for her work in creating engagement opportunities for graduate students over the last year and further thank her for sharing her enthusiasm within the graduate community. We do wish her the best as she completes her studies at Brock and for whatever follows her time here.”
Through a decision of the Board of Directors, and in alignment of relevant governing legislation, the GSA will not be embarking on a recruitment cycle to fill this vacancy for the remainder of the 2022-2023 operating year (until April 2023). The duties of Vice-President, Student Engagement will be dispersed among the current Executive team.
“In conversations within the Executive Committee, and in consultation with our Board of Directors, we are confident in our abilities as a team to ensure that graduate students have options of engagement activities and opportunities for the remaining six months of this operating year,” shares Myatt. “We thank the Board for their confidence in our team to move forward in this direction. We also wish to thank our members in advance for their patience and understanding on any disruptions to service or delays in communications during this time.”
If you have questions regarding this announcement, the role of Vice-President, Student Engagement or upcoming events and engagements from the GSA, please reach out to Haley Myatt at email@example.com.
