The BSA takes part of the Students' Union Jr Executive Program and would not be able to function as well without the huge input of its Jr Executives; Coordinators.
Four of the BSA's biggest portfolios: Academic, Marketing, Professional Events and Social Events benefit from the invaluable help of Coordinators, check out their teams below!

The Academic Coordinators are responsible for assisting with all that falls under our VP Academic’s portfolio. That includes meeting with professors to create Course Profiles, allowing for the variety of profiles currently available, writing up blog posts, and sitting on the Awards Committee to help adjudicate our BSA Awards. They work hard to coordinate events that will help develop students' academic skills!

The Marketing Coordinators have had a major role as the BSA attempts to be more active and interactive on its social media accounts, with an emphasis on the BSA Instagram at @bsaucalgary. They design graphics for our social media accounts so students are well aware of what the BSA has going on, handle website maintenance and team pictures, and advertise all events as well as designing custom BSA merchandise every year.

Professional Events Coordinators work with the VP Professional Events to plan and coordinate events related to your professional skills. More specifically, they propose ideas regarding events that the BSA should host in addition to helping facilitate each event. They also participate in weekly meetings, help contact professors and obtain event supplies.

The Social Events Coordinators work closely with our VP Social Events to ensure that events are planned and executed smoothly. They think of new creative ideas to get students involved and plan for events, working to ensure that every student who attends a BSA event has a great time. At events, they try to ensure that each attendee is involved and feels welcome.
