November President’s Report

Hey all! I hope everyone is fairing well with exams, final assessments and end of year events. Firstly, as we’re nearing the end of the year, I’d just like to say what a privilege it has been to be your 2017 USASA President! It’s been amazing to meet so many of you this year and to see your passion for our student community. Thank you to the USASA Board for a fantastic year and I wish everyone in the new 2018 Board the absolute best.

During November I have been focused on putting together all of my final reports and submissions to hand over to the incoming Board, as well as to the University. I have also been preparing for the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) Conference and National Union of Students’ National Conference. I have also handed down submissions to the University on the International Relations changes in collaboration with students, staff and the NTEU; as well as presenting on and preparing a final report on student representation at UniSA.

It was fantastic to see all the new volunteers getting involved throughout the week as well. February was also spent meeting with Board members and establishing their KPIs for the year.
