Alcohol Server Training Program (with Healthy McGill)
McGill University requires that at least one Event Coordinator and all event servers at all student events (involving alcohol) attend a Server Training session. The University will not issue alcohol permits or book an event and/or book a room until this training is complete, so if you're planning a party you will want to be trained well in advance. The Server Training Program educates student alcohol providers about their legal responsibilities as servers, and provides practical methods for ensuring responsible consumption and a safe environment.
SEAMLESS summit for faculty/school association student executives (with SSMU)
SSMU and CL&E hosts an annual summit for student executives at McGill, titled SEAMLESS (Student Executives at McGill Learning, Engaging, Sharing, & Strategizing). SEAMLESS brings together students from different faculty and school associations to network, discuss the role of student associations and executives at McGill, share successful practices, and identify possible points of collaboration.
