Election results are in!CSA

Hey guys,

The time has finally come, the election results are in. Let's start with those:

  • President: Sabreen Gill (@sabrreen)
  • Vice President: Samuel Shull (@Samuel / CourseDiscovery)
  • Secretary: Mason Paquette (@Mason / General_Mario)
  • Treasurer: Simranjit Singh (@Simranjit / TheTranquilLion)
  • Communications Manager (@Krish Machanda)

And now some words from our sponsor... that would be me, Josh. Given that I'm passing on the metaphorical torch, I thought I'd say a few words. This year with the CSA has honestly been one hell of a roller coaster. From dealing with SUS to trying to host as many events as we could to everything in between. I'm very happy with what we've accomplished this year.

We held several coding competitions, some hackathons, an awesome tech panel and attempted a game jam. It wasn't perfect to say the least and it may not have seemed like much at times but a lot of effort has gone into each and every event. For that, I really want to thank the entire exec team for their hard work this year. I also want to thank you guys for showing up to our events and participating in the conversation on the server. Without you guys, there isn't really a CSA, so thank you.

I'm sure I can speak for most of the team in saying it's a bittersweet end to our time in the CSA. We accomplished a lot this year and we're proud of that; however, we're very excited to see what the future holds. We look forward to what the next team can accomplish in the coming year. With all this being sent, I guess it's time for me to sign off. Feel free to DM me if you have any burning questions tho.

Updated Site + CSA Merch has ArrivedCSA

First, I've got some cool news for everyone, our site has finally been updated so feel free to check it out at https://csa.ufv.ca/. A huge thank you to Samuel, <@1067870977305890907>, for making this. Events and announcements now have separate channels where posts from the site will be auto posted. We don't want to spam the entire server with reminders when events are coming closer so we've decided to use discord events. You can click interested to opt in to be notified for events you're interested in (should be a month and a week prior to the event in question). Overall, I'm really liking the direction we're going, again, huge thanks to Samuel for making this possible!

Lastly, we got merch! As you can see in the image above, those are the main designs that people ordered. We did order extra pixelated versions so if you're still interested in getting one, we do have extras. If there is enough interest, we may also do a secondary drop so if you were on the fence and want to come check em out, let us know. That's it for now!

IEEE AnnouncementIEEE

For those that couldn't make it to the IEEE meeting. We learned about how by joining IEEE we get a ton more opportunities for making connections with actual employers and getting your projects in front of them. This gives you a huge advantage applying to different places. Another benefit she mentioned were very recognizable scholarship opportunities given that IEEE is one of the largest international organizations for COMP / CIS students. If joining sounds good to you, we are starting a UFV chapter for IEEE. To join, sign up for an account on IEEE.org, then, join IEEE as a student. Once that is done, you'll be given an IEEE member number, this can be found by clicking on your name at the top, then on Membership information, Membership card and certificates and finally onto IEEE membership card. At the bottom of this PDF you'll be able to view your code. If you sign up, DM me your full name, student email and your IEEE member code. For members, once I have everyone's info forwarded to Mandeep, I will email everyone regarding electing a chair, vice chair, treasurer and secretary. EDIT: For those that want to join, there is a 16 USD membership fee. (edited)10
