2016-2017 ASBAA Team


PRESIDENT

Jonathan Juniper

My name is Jonathan Juniper, the president of the Asper School of Business Accounting Association (ASBAA). I am currently in my fourth year majoring in accounting, and plan on pursuing the CPA designation. After a few networking events last year, I realized how important making business connections is for students. I knew I wanted to be heavily involved with organizing these events so I can help students enjoy some of the positive experiences I had. Joining student action groups is the best way to meet your current and future leaders. I encourage all of Asper students to get involved throughout the year to make their time a great experience!
