The UCAA is looking for an Events Coordinator and a Treasurer! Are you an enthusiastic alumnus or alumna and do you want to be more involved in the UCU alumni community? Read on!
The UCAA board is responsible for representing alumni affairs on campus and tries to ensure the maintenance of an active alumni network through events, Post magazine, newsletters, and more. Being part of the UCAA board means you are a team player, but also able to work independently on tasks and projects. Other tasks, like becoming a part of the Post editorial board, helping organize events, and any other ideas or projects you might think of yourself can always be discussed, for any position.
The Events Coordinator is responsible for organizing and coordinating teams that set up the different UCAA events. This includes the yearly pub quiz, the Summer BBQ, regional drinks, and of course any new events you come up with!
The Treasurer is responsible for paying the bills, maintaining the budget and keeping track of all money that goes in and out of our accounts. On behalf of the UCAA, the Treasurer works closely with the Rabobank, UCU and the USCA in order to ensure that the financial conditions are met for all activities the UCAA undertakes. We are looking for someone with an affinity for numbers and planning, is able to work systematically.
Why be a board member?
Being a board member gives you valuable and demonstrable experience in many important areas, like team work, organizational skills and project management. You’ll be able to give back to your alma mater, expand your network and, most importantly, have fun. Board members are partially reimbursed for the hours they spend on alumni affairs. Involvement in the board also allows you to participate in UCU’s international student recruitment with the possibility to visit educational fairs abroad.
As the board is seated in Utrecht, we are looking for candidates who either live in the Utrecht area or can travel there on a regular basis. Time investment is approximately 5 hours per week, plus a monthly Board meeting and attending the occasional UCU, UCAA and UU events and meetings. We are looking for board members who can start in October and are interested in staying on for at least one year, although there are no fixed terms.
