My name is Alannah De Angelis, and I am an undergraduate member of the CUPE 3906 union and I am running for the position of the Undergraduate Officer. I am currently in my 5th year of the Honours Commerce program at McMaster and pursuing a minor in Innovation. I recently completed a 1-year internship in Marketing at SC Johnson, where I gained valuable knowledge and experience in customer marketing, working on the Ziploc brand. I have been a Teaching Assistant throughout my last 2 years at McMaster for 4 different courses which include Commerce 1AA3: Financial Accounting, Innovate 1X03: The Word of Entrepreneurship, Innovate 2X03: Lean Startup and Gentech 4FM3: Fundamentals of Marketing. I have also had the opportunity to work at McMaster during my undergrad as a Guest Experience Assistant/Conference Assistant for the McMaster Conference & Events department, where I had the opportunity to work directly with Conference Organizers and other McMaster departments.
Throughout my time at McMaster, I have loved getting involved with various extra-curriculars which included being a Welcome Week representative for the DeGroote faculty, a Mentor for incoming first-year students in the First-Year Orientation program at DeGroote, a delegate for the JDCC case competition, a Community Advisor for Bates Residence, a member on the Senate Board for Student Appeals, an undergraduate member for the Faculty of Business on the McMaster University Senate and a member on the Committee to Nominate a Chancellor. I also enjoy volunteering in the community, and I am currently a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton-Halton, a team member with City Kidz and a member with the Stoney Creek Optimist Club.
Throughout all my experiences, I have gained extensive leadership, communication, organizational and problem-solving skills that I would be able to bring into this role. I have always interested in learning more about unions and I am eager to be able to run for a position on the executive team for CUPE 3906. I would love to bring the voice of the Undergraduate members to the committee. Thank you!
