Okanagan Business Students Association
What is the OBSA?
The Okanagan Business Students' Association (OBSA) is comprised of students registered in courses in the department of Business Administration – any student is eligible to join the committees. The operations of the Association are chiefly carried out in the Okanagan College campuses of Kelowna, Vernon, Salmon Arm and Penticton. The OBSA, registered under the BC Societies Act, is administered centrally through the KLO campus. The OBSA provides a means for students to gather the kind of real world business experience and involvement in student organizations that distinguishes them when they graduate and apply to businesses or for further studies.
Positions on the OBSA Committee
Executive positions in the OBSA include: president, vice-president, treasurer, portfolio manager, and public relations manager. Department director positions in human resources, marketing, communications, information technology, and administration. A faculty advisor provided by the college helps the OBSA to keep the faculty current on OBSA activities and projects, and vice versa. No experience is required – just commitment and integrity. The executive committee accepts new members throughout the year, and you can apply by sending a brief bio and complete contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org
The mandate of the OSBA is:
Our four main purposes as an organization are to encourage the interaction between business students, the business community and faculty, to increase community awareness about the Okanagan School of Business, to raise funds for student bursaries, and to organize special events for the business community to meet the next generation of business leaders.
The OBSA in an organization that cultivates identity and enduring relationships through opportunities and experience.
