AUSU Council Retreat

In June 2017, AUSU council traveled from across Canada to meet up in Athabasca for a council working retreat. The retreat was held over the convocation weekend from June 7 to June 10, which provided a great opportunity for council to see the ceremony, greet other AU students and celebrate their successes, as well as to meet in person with various AU stakeholders. They even held an AUSU 25th-year birthday party on the main campus!

Overall, it was a fun and productive weekend. Council got a chance to get to know each other better, which helps facilitate conversation when most meetings throughout the year are done by teleconference. Some great ideas were formed to help AUSU with strategic planning for the upcoming year with a vision of expanding our advocacy efforts, member engagement, and more.
