President and Chief Executive Officer
Michael Coldwell

The President is the Chief Executive Officer of the Society and is responsible for all of its functions. The President represents all of the Society’s interests to external bodies such as the Alma Mater Society, Senate Residence Committee, and Queen's Residence Life. The President is also the direct supervisor of the rest of the executive board. The President serves a one year term, decided by an election every January.

I'm the President and CEO of the Residence Society for the 2018-19 year. I am a fifth year student, completing a dual degree in Commerce and Life Science. Coming from Halifax, I came to Queen's knowing only a few people, and my time in residence set the foundation for the amazing years that I've had here. As a former Don and Lecturer TA, I'm always keen on creating a more engagement environment for students, and couldn't be more excited to take on the role of President with this same attitude. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, then please don't hesitate to reach out at the email below.

My name is Matthew Ierino and I am the Vice President (Residence Affairs) for 2018/2019 school year. I am currently completing my BAH in History, so don't hesitate to test me on my history knowledge! Involvement in residences has been an important component of my time Queen’s. I am beyond thrilled to be involved in residence this year! I have served as a House President (Gord-Brock) and have served as a Residence Facilitator in prior years. Last year, I lived off campus, serving as the AMS Chief Electoral Officer while also working with StudioQ. I am from Sudbury, ON and on my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, travelling, learning about the latest tech and the learning about the current state of politics. This year, my hope is to bring my experience within and outside residences and apply it to improving the quality of service delivered by ResSoc. I hope to improve ResSoc’s ability to impact the lives of all residents and shape House Presidents into impactful and enthusiastic leaders within their respective communities. Feel free to contact me via email or my office hours, I'd love to chat!!

Hi team! My name is Jake and this is my 3rd year with ResSoc. In the past, I’ve worked for the Society as a Residence Facilitator (RF) and ResSoc President. This year I’m coming back as the VPJA and I’m looking forward to the position! A bit about me: I’m a 4th year drama student, I love being active, and I used to do voices for kids tv shows. Can’t wait to see you all!
