Meghan MacLaren

VP Social Candidate, Meghan MacLaren

Hello everyone! My name is Meghan MacLaren, and I’m so excited to be running for VP Social 2023-2024! You may remember me as PhUS PY1 Year Rep 2022-2023, but even before that, I was Director of Academic Affairs and VP Communications on the Biochemistry Undergraduate Society at McGill University. During my 3 years of student government experience, I have planned retreats, crawls, and trivia nights. Most recently, I planned PY1 events and coordinated our skit for Skits Night 2023! I also have experience in advertising and promoting events on social media, as is clear from my spamming of the PY1 Facebook page and Messenger chat (sorry guys)!

I furthered my event planning experience this year as a part of Social Committee, where I helped plan and organize Boo’s Cruise and Gala. I was involved in theme and decor planning, organizing, and setting up these two fun pharmacy events. I have seen the logistics of how these events operate, so I would be prepared to coordinate these events as well as Welcome Back BBQ and Skits Night.

If elected as VP Social, I would like to hire a Social Committee that is just as enthusiastic as I am about event-planning! I would involve them in organizing the pharmacy events to whatever extent they wanted! I would also be open to event suggestions and feedback from the rest of the student body.

I look forward an amazing year of pharmacy social events, and please vote Meghan MacLaren for VP Social 2023-2024!
