Hello everyone! My name is Kathy Le and I am the current president of SVCC. I am hoping to run for the position of president once again for the upcoming year. SVCC is an amazing organization full of passionate people and I have seen the positive impact that we have left in the lives of others. I want to be able to help guide the executive team to provide not only amazing service to our participants, but to also give volunteers a reason to be proud of the organization that they lend their time to. As current president I know the amount of work and determination it will take to run SVCC and I am willing to dedicate another year to ensure our success as a team. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any further questions. Thank you!
Vice President – Internal
My name is Eevannis Ma (Jinjin). I’m a candidate of VP – Internal next year. I have joined SVCC for four semesters as an internal member. During the two years, I have done a serious of works include evaluating instructors, preparing the supplies for classes and activities, helping recruiting and taking class photos. So I have a lot of experience and understand the responsibilities of being the internal portion of SVCC. If elected, I will continue to performed my duties and do my best to manage the services to our participants and volunteers.
Vice President – Finance
Hi everyone, my name is Aidi Feng. I have been volunteering with SVCC finance group for almost a year. Over the last year I had been assisted Mei who is the vice president of Finance with various accounting work. I am familiar and able to perform day to day job with other members of finance groups. Routine jobs of the finance group includes issuing check after verifying the receipts, updating journal entries with paper and also simply accounting system, as well as budgeting and managing the SVCC’s bank account. I am confident and hard-working. Further, as an accounting major student, my background will assist me with various accounting work. Therefore, I am looking forward to join the election for the position of VP finance. I wish I could represent and lead the SVCC finance team to perform a better job in the next year. For the upcoming year, first, I plan to make a better schedule and ensure at least one person in our group will be shown up every week. Second, since we have a separate locker already, our working papers and laptop will be stored securely. Third, I will strive to be more organized and work more efficiently to ensure everyone could get their check faster. Fourth, I am planning to send every vice president the budget for their group next year so that they are free to check any time. Please also feel free to text or email me anytime if you have any concerns. Finally, I am looking forward to have a great time volunteering with SVCC!
Vice President – Korean
My name is Seo-Whi Kwon, and I am a third year education student at the University of Alberta. I love to work with others and be involved. I am very enthusiastic and have solid work ethics when working with others, and I will commit my time to assure that all levels of Korean language sessions are running smoothly. My main goal is to promote a organized, cooperative, and a multicultural learning environment to which all participants have a positive experience with all Korean language sessions. I will always be open to opinions and be willing to communicate with facilitators, facilitator assistants, and committee members at all times.

We are Magdalena Koziak and Valerie Ho! We’re running for co-VP English. We were co-VPs for English in the previous year, and hope to continue working together with SVCC to provide English sessions to University of Alberta students and community members.

Both Co-VPs also have facilitating experience, in order to better guide their group facilitators and volunteers.

Vice President – Mandarin
My name is Shijian Bao and I am running for SVCC VP Mandarin. I joined SVCC earlier this year as a group facilitator and fell in love with the group and the wonder people that I have met here. My interest and passion in Chinese language and culture does not diminish as I study far abroad. I believe SVCC offers an mutually-beneficial and most community-friendly opportunity to me and whoever participates to learn from each other’s culture and languages. This is specially important in modern society as people from different backgrounds are communicating in a ever faster and diversified fashion. Here, as one active member of the society, I would like to utilize my dedication and strong communications skills to ensure my participants get the most enjoyable experience at SVCC.
The goal for this coming year includes Improving the quality of Mandarin sessions and maintain high rate of retention whenever possible. More importantly, recruit qualified volunteers and assist them so that we can grow together. I believe I can be a part of the executive team that makes next year even better! Thank you for your reading and support!
