The BCITMA member of the month is a distinction we give to club members that have distinguished themselves in the past month.
As the largest club on campus, the BCITMA has over a hundred members, and it is easy for the work of individual members to fall by the wayside and be forgotten. That is what the Member of the Month award is for – to recognize the time and dedication that members put into making the BCITMA work for everyone.
It also recognizes the immense time commitment that goes into the MA. The BCITMA does not just prepare you for a job, it IS a job – in terms of how much time it takes, at a time when you can ill afford it. These are the people that would be an asset to any future employer, simply because they are the type of individuals who are constantly challenging themselves by taking on extra responsibilities.
The recipient for November’s member of the month showed great initiative in everything she does. As a member of the Sponsorship Committee, she was consistently on top of her assigned tasks; she was dedicated to reaching out to new leads and even managed to surpass her quotas by a wide margin. Initiative, persistence and charisma – this month’s winner embodied all of the qualities that make her an exemplary member of the BCITMA.
The Winner Is…
