2018/2019
To Whom this May Concern,

Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to read and fill out this application to join the Biology
Students’ Association Executive Council for this year, 2018/2019! Currently, only the Vice
President Operations & Finance role is vacant, and our Executive team would love to fill this
role as soon as possible!

The BSA will be undergoing significant changes throughout the Spring/Summer term
and as the current, 5-person Executive team is hard at work in redesigning the entire club, we
look forward to your applications! This would be the perfect opportunity to get involved with
BSA as we restructure the club and undergo significant changes!

I have attached a full description for the Vice President Operations & Finance role
below on the following page. Please take a look over it to ensure that you are fully aware of
what the role entails! The Executive team will be working closely with each other over the
following months as we prepare the club for upcoming, Fall 2018/Winter 2019 academic year.

Ideally, having someone available for the Spring/Summer months is crucial as we


redevelop the BSA. We look forward to reading your applications and welcoming you to the
BSA team!

Best regards,

Omer Mansoor
President

The University of Calgary
