Students pick BOG members

Two to serve one-year term

Two new student members have been elected to UBC's Board of Governors for a one-year term following the recent Alma Mater Society (AMS) elections.

Maryann Adamec joins the board after serving as AMS president last year and vice-president in 1999/2000.

Originally from Calgary, Adamec is in her fourth year of a marketing major in the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration. She serves as treasurer for the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations and as a committee member for International House and UBC's Aquatic Centre.

"I intend to use my knowledge of student affairs to increase action and awareness on issues such as sustainability, campus safety, transportation and international education," says Adamec.

Tieg Martin, a fourth-year Arts student, returns to the Board for a second term.

"The sometimes combative relationship between the AMS Council and UBC administration is frustrating," says Martin. "I aim to improve communication and to increase the Board's profile among students."

His contributions to the Board include changing the term of office for student representatives to better fit with UBC's budget cycle.

Working toward a bachelor's degree in English and Medieval Studies, Martin is a dual citizen of Canada and the United Kingdom. He has lived and worked in Alberta, Australia, England, Quebec and Tunisia, and has traveled in South and southeast Asia, the Balkans, and Central America.

UBC's 15-member Board of Governors comprises the chancellor, the president, eight persons appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor, two faculty members elected by faculty, two full-time students elected by students and one person elected by and from those full-time employees of the university who are not faculty members.
