Students' Association Council

Nathan Bridges, President

Nathaniel is a 2nd year Land and Water Management student. In three words, he would describe himself as personable, dedicated, and pragmatic. Over the years at Assiniboine Community College he has been engaged in the student community by starting clubs such as the Environmental Sustainability Club, and organizing events like the Halloween social at Houstans.  

In his first year he was elected the Agriculture and Environment Representative, and last spring he was elected as the VP of Governance. He is very familiar with the operations of the Students’ Association and will effectively accomplish the goals the SAC sets out to do. 

He will strive to implement effective communication between students and the Students’ Association, improve our sense of community and student engagement, and ameliorate processes to enhance the productivity of future councils. 

“I would love to hear from all of you, and I look forward to serving you as your ACCSA president”, said Bridges.

Julia Teichroeb, Vice President Governance

Julia is attending Assiniboine Community College in the Business Administration program. She has 12 years of experience working in management and HR. She believes that these skills will be vital to my success in her role as VP Governance for the Students’ Association Council. She will also sit as the Chair on the Financial Oversite Committee, where they review and approve all financial statements, along with the By-Laws and Policies Committee. She believes her experience in HR will be vital to this position as the SAC starts to implement new policies and procedures. 

Julia was Interim VP for about a month for before she was officially elected into the role through the by-election, and in that time she has come to realize the training system in place for ACCSA members is completely reliant on our Executive Director (paid staff member). “What this means is that by the time every ACCSA member is trained in their position a good chunk of their term is over,” said Teichroeb. “The ACCSA deals with a high turnover, our council is made up completely of current students. Streamlining the training process through a handbook and training videos will allow the ACCSA to become more efficient for years to come.”
