Brandon Pederson is President of The Executives Business Club at Concordia University and part of the Student Government Committee of the Student Athletic Advisory Council where he is the voice of the university’s athletes during Student Government meetings.
My leadership journey at Concordia University began when I was elected President of The Executives Business Club, an organization of business students whose mission is to “build upon one another for a better future.” We meet once a week to discuss current business events, bring in members of the surrounding business community to have conversations with, and improve our university through service projects and events. I organize the meetings every week and plan out what we will discuss.
This semester, I was able to have the President of Rada International, a global supply-chain solutions company, come speak with us. Along with myself, I have a Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Risk Management Officer, and a Marketing Officer. I delegate tasks to each member of my team to make the club run more smoothly. Along with serving as President of The Executives Business Club, I also serve on the Student Government Committee of the Student Athletic Advisory Council. I am the voice of the university’s athletes during Student Government meetings.
Representing not only my golf team, but the entire athlete population at the university has given me a greater sense of responsibility and leadership. I am held to a higher standard than other students because I represent my fellow athletes on the committee, as well as business students in The Executives. I greatly enjoy having this extra sense of responsibility and leadership. I have learned how to better lead and manage people with these leadership positions, and I look forward to continuing this next semester.
