Alberta student advocacy group elects new leaders
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 18, 2010
Edmonton, AB -- The Alberta Student Executive Council (ASEC), an advocacy group
representing over 120,000 post-secondary students across the province, is proud to
announce the results of its leadership election on May 8, 2010.
Steven Kwasny, President of the Studentsʼ Association of Red Deer College was
elected as the ASEC Chair for 2010/2011 and Timothy Jobs, President of NAIT
Studentsʼ Association will serve as the ASEC Vice-Chair.
Kwasny is a returning student leader, and served as ASECʼs Director of Policy for 2009-
10. Looking at the year ahead, Kwasny predicts "2010-2011 will be a very interesting
and challenging year for all Albertans, especially students. In the current economic
climate, Alberta's students are being hit from all sides. With ultra-high unemployment,
rising tuition and fee costs, as well as post-secondary institutions struggling with their
budgets, 2010/2011 will not be an easy time for anyone." Kwasny adds that "the
Advanced Education sector is one that affects the lives of all Albertans and this coming
year will be a game changer."
ASEC Executive Director Carol Neuman says she is “confident our incoming executives
will be the strong, committed team needed at this crucial time for Alberta students.
Kwasny is a strong policy analyst and bridge-builder, and his ability to bring together
stakeholders across the post-secondary landscape will allow him to provide great
leadership to both our organization and the Alberta student movement at large.”
