Hello everyone! My name is Eric Van Halteren and I am 2B Honours Mathematics (soon to be Mathematical Studies. I am extremely excited to be running for the position of President in MathSoc in Spring 2010.
I have been involved with MathSoc for over 2 years now. In first year I represented math students as part of MathSoc council, where I gained knowledge about the inner workings of the society. Throughout my second year, I have acted as a helping hand for many of the activities provided by MathSoc, and am currently the Postings Director this term.
I am running for the position of president because I have seen what MathSoc has to offer, and I have many ideas to further improve these services in an attempt to make MathSoc even better for you, the students. Some of these ideas include, but are not limited to, increasing the presence of MathSoc by making our services more known through advertisement and student representatives of MathSoc. In addition, I would like to make MathSoc more open to student oppinion. This could be done by including a student oppinion section on the MathSoc website, as well as creating surveys that can be filled in by students. As well, I want to expand the exam bank through the help of student representatives, and get more involved with helping improve the C&D financial status.
