The University College Alumni Association is looking for new board members!
Do you want to have a say in how alumni affairs are run? Do you want to expand your own network? Do you want to help us transition full-grown alumni association? Then join the UCAA board! We are looking for three new board members for the positions of Chair and Public Relations Officer. In short, these positions can be summarised as follows:
The Chair acts as the representative and face of the Association at key UCU events and occasions, and through regular meetings with College Hall. The chair develops and implements the strategy for the upcoming years and supervises the board.
The Public Relations Officer is in charge of maintaining social media, advertising, and management of our online platforms. The PR officer works on the new UCAA blog, advertises the association, and creates new kinds of relationships with external parties and alumni. For this position, having some web design experience and know-how (or the ambition to develop them) would come in handy.
Being a UCAA board member is a voluntary position – we all dedicate a few hours a week to the association, as well as some evenings for board meetings and various other events. We also participate in various UCU events, such as graduations, and get the opportunity to work closely with both alumni and UCU staff. We get the chance to help the alumni community grow closer together and undertake increasingly cooler projects and pursuits. Naturally, taking a position in the UCAA board is also a nice opportunity to obtain experience in running an organisation and to develop one’s skills!
The operations of the UCAA take place largely in Utrecht, therefore we are looking for a Netherlands-based alumnus or alumna (but living in Utrecht itself is not a requirement by any means).
If you are interested in any of these positions, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and a short paragraph describing your motivation for your preferred position.
