New officers for the School’s Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA) have been elected. The new officers were introduced at the Dean’s Happy Hour on April 16.
Dannon Nemeth, who was elected GBSA president, said his goals for the organization are built around the platform on which he ran using the C-A-N-E-S acronym, with “C” representing “communications” and “A” representing accountability.
“GBSA and the School have a reciprocal responsibility to communicate, with the administration communicating to the students and with students communicating back to the administration,” said Nemeth.
He says the “N” represents “new business development,” meaning that GBSA will focus on developing relationships with alumni and business leaders to create career opportunities for students, while “E” points to “engagement” in that the GBSA president and officers must be available and tuned in to what’s important to their classmates. The “S,” says Nemeth, stands for “success-oriented,” meaning that GBSA will ensure that it is achieving both meaningful and measurable results on behalf of the graduate student body and that the graduate student body is receiving the necessary resources to succeed in all areas.
In addition to Nemeth, the new officers include Angela Zhong, executive secretary; Scott Parliament, executive VP; Josh Steirman, speaker of the senate; Rajen Raythatha, social director; Emily Frias, director of professional development; Steve Jensen, director of community service; Seth Bohler, athletic director; Supreet Arora, director of communications; Liana Coolman, historian; Ronak Gohel, GSA senator; and Katelyn Kenney, GSA alternate senator.
