Application Period

Monday, January 9, 2017 at 12pm until Friday, January 13, 2017 11:59pm

Details

Students will apply into the program, and successful candidates will be matched as best as possible with their conferences or competencies of preference as noted in their application. Students apply on an individual basis.

Coordination of teams will be based on the preferences of successful applicants and determined by AFSA Goes for Gold program organizers. Once teams have been formed, practices will be set up in conjunction with the AFSA Education/Internal Services portfolio(s) and/or JDCC academic teams.

AFSA will subsidize up to 80% of students’ costs. The exact cost per student is pending travel arrangements, confirmation of delegate fees by external conference organizers, and the finalization of the AFSA and AFEF’s 2015-2016 budget. Expected final costs are currently posted in our AFSA Goes for Gold Conference Bank, but are subject to change and will be finalized by November 2015.
The application is simple…

  • Be an SAF student!
  • Be willing to compete in a few unique competencies!
  • Demonstrate the willingness to learn from the experience!
  • Demonstrate the ability to represent your school the right way!
  • Demonstrate the willingness to devote preparation time with your team!

All inquiries about the AFSA Goes for Gold conference program should be directed to Ellie Wang, Michelle Hoang, and Jason Li via email, at vp.external@uwafsa.ca

AFSA is a proud member of the Canadian Association of Business Students (CABS). CABS brings together commerce societies similar to AFSA from universities across Canada and oversees the execution of multiple conferences which AFSA and our SAF students are stakeholders and participants in. AFSA has leveraged its CABS membership to learn about best practices from other members schools, which has led to the work on AFSA's Goes for Gold conference program, AFSA's potential commerce levy, and AFSA's potential standing as a student society within FEDS. AFSA has been a member since Spring term of 2013.
