Congratulations to the Ted Rogers Students' Society (TRSS) and the group’s President, Brad Wells, for winning awards at the Canadian Association of Business Students’ (CABS) annual conference.

TRSS was named the Most Outstanding Business Students' Association and Wells was given the All-Star President Award.

“TRSS remains dedicated to enhancing the undergraduate experiences of students, and we are very grateful for the CABS presenting us with these awards to recognize our efforts,” says Wells. “These awards are a celebration of all of the hard-work and dedication from the TRSS Executive Committee and Board, our 52 committee members as well as the 930+ student leaders from the groups under the TRSS umbrella. Without them, along with the students, none of this would have been possible.”

The CABS represents over 70,000 business students from 26 universities in Canada, and strives to develop superior talent and leadership within business students. Its annual Roundtable Conference is one of the country’s largest and most prestigious student-run conferences which connects student leaders and celebrates the excellence of business students and their associations with awards.

At this year’s event, held virtually March 12-14, 2021, TRSS was named the Most Outstanding Business Students' Association, an award given to one CABS member society that made the biggest strides with respect to their management and execution of their operations in the current operating year.

"We are so proud that CABS has recognized something we have known for a long time -- the Ted Rogers School students are the very best and TRSS exemplifies everything that makes our students so outstanding," says Dr. Al Goss, Associate Dean, Students at the Ted Rogers School.

In addition, Wells was given the All-Star President Award, which is presented to the business student association President who best exemplifies passion, dedication to their group and going above and beyond their typical role or job description for the betterment of their business school student communities.

“I am truly honoured to have received the All-Star President Award from CABS,” Wells says. “Being the President of Canada's largest undergraduate commerce society and getting to represent the Ted Rogers School on a national level has an extremely fulfilling experience, and the highlight of my undergraduate career.”
