What is Campus Activities Board?

The NAIT Students’ Association operates a Campus Activities Board (a.k.a. CAB.) It’s a team of 14 students and 5 supervisors that work together to provide students at NAIT with over 140 kick-ass events each year.

If you’re interested in being a part of this amazing group next year, there are four key areas where you will need to focus your attention:

  1. Visionary thinking – Help NAITSA set its direction for events in the upcoming year.
  2. Providing feedback – Tell NAITSA what you think about everything we do, and what you think we should do.
  3. Collecting data – Mingle with the student body and listen to what they have to say – what do they do for fun, what do they expect from NAITSA, and how do they like to communicate with us – and report back to the team.
  4. Support the team – Work together! Campus Activities Board is only successful if every member brings their “A-game”, their best energy and support to the team. Be there to lend a hand when someone needs help and they will return the favour.

Ask any Campus Activities Board alum and they will say that CAB experience was the highlight of their NAIT experience. The friendships formed are long-lasting, every shift brings a lot of laughter, and members get to apply skills they have learned in the classroom to enhance campus life at NAIT.  There are five (5) Events Coordinator positions available for the 2020-2021 NAIT academic year.  Three (3) of the Event Coordinators hired will be responsible for pub events primarily.  Two (2) others will be responsible for the NAITSA How-To Series as well as various other events outside of the campus pub).
