KIN Cup Review

-small turnout compared to previous years; UNDERGRADUATES WON!

-both teams met for numbers & everyone enjoyed themselves,

-no snacks this year and no one seemed to miss them

-if there was a 3 hour time slot then snacks may be worth it

-might be better to have an established rule book as it took time to establish

rules before the games started

-central gym undergoing renovations caused a lot of delay in planning the

event; this wont be an issue next year

-next year whoever is in charge could get t shirts printed out for the event as it is an annual event

            -could also do championship t-shirts – would have to do registration to

determine how many t-shirts we need

-will have to establish an early cutoff for registration to have enough time to order t-shirts

            -we could include other sports such as floor hockey for next year

-Tony talked about doing a summer KIN Cup – for outdoor summer sports

such as kickball; more on this later



-we need to promote in classes for YEP

-Richard and Loryn will deal with the games


BPKSA Summer 2016

-If you would like an interim position in the BPKSA for summer, send Loryn an email (lbohne@sfu.ca)


Meeting with Dr. Angela Brooks Wilson


-Dr. Angela Brooks-Wilson will be the new BPK Chair as of May 2016

-Erina & Megan will meet with Angie to talk about any issues with the BPK undergraduate programs

-we will send out a web survey to ask the entire undergraduate population if they think there are any issues & whether there is something they want us to bring up

-career planning and options available, need to advertise more other career paths aside from PT and Med

topics of discussion as of right now include:

-main pressing concern is that many BPK majors don’t know what to do with

their degrees

-need to have BPK majors aware of jobs in demand as of right now

-BPK is also lacking in training undergraduates so they have better practical skills

when they graduate or when they apply for co-op positions

-BIF is also coming up with more lab oriented courses



The meeting of the BPKSA was adjourned by Loryn at 1:20pm in room K9622. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 30 2016 in room K9622.
