Executive Team

2016-2017 ASFV Executive Team

President: Jaskaran GIll


About Me:

I am currently in my fourth year working towards my BBA in Accounting & Finance Co-op Degree. I will be minoring in Economics alongside a Professional communication essentials certificate. Currently, I am on a two-term co-op with Canada Revenue Agency as an Income Tax Auditor. I would like to continue my education in the direction of achieving my CPA designation. Why I chose accounting as a career, I feel like accounting is the backbone of every company and that it is something that is required for a business to succeed. I love being the reason for success and I believe accounting for a business/corporation is one of the major reasons for success. In the far future I would love to open up my own business. When I am not at school studying, I am usually spending time with my friends and family.

What made you interested in becoming a member of ASFV?

ASFV was the beginning of hands on experience for me. I found out about ASFV through a former student who was an Executive member of ASFV at the time. During that time I realized what a great opportunity it would be to become a part of it myself, and so I decided to run for President. I was not aware of ASFV until last year, and that is why I would like to create a bigger network for ASFV so students that students in 1st and 2nd year are aware of the benefits and opportunities that ASFV provides. The club is a great way for students to get involved with the school as well as have a fun environment outside of school. As well it provides students access to the accounting world and leads to great opportunities within the accounting field. ASFV is a newer club and not many students are aware of it. Our goal at ASFV is to enlarge our network and allow students who are slightly interested in the accounting field to get involved.

I am looking forward to complete the final year of my undergraduate degree. By the end of this year, I hope to have achieved my BBA degree with concentrations in Accounting and Finance, a minor in Economics, and a Professional Communication Essentials certificate. During my degree, I had the opportunity to complete an extended co-op work term at the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as an auditor. I found this experience extremely valuable and insightful. In addition growing as an individual, my time at CRA sparked a real interest in a career in accounting. I hope to receive the CPA designation. In my spare time, I enjoy biking, travelling, and spending time with my friends and family.

About Me

I am currently in my 4th year of the BBA Program at UFV. My goal is to graduate by the end of Winter 2016 with a major in Accounting. My ultimate goal is to achieve a CPA designation and start my own accounting firm. I chose accounting because I have been around it my whole life. With the family business we do most of the accounting work ourselves, and have our accountant review it afterwards. I spend most of my free time working in the family business or spending time with my friends and family.

What made you interested in becoming a member of ASFV?

I wanted to become a member of the ASFV team because I believe the first and second year students don’t know the importance of the accounting club. I was not aware of the accounting club until last year and did not know the importance of networking and getting out to all the events. I am excited to be the CPA Ambassador and get the opportunity to grow our ASFV network.
