Meet the Alumni Executive!
The Alumni Executive are elected by the wider Alumni Association to fulfil a term of one year on the Committee of EYPUK. They are the direct liaison to the wider alumni community and help run the regional sessions, plan the upcoming EurVoice events, facilitate and prepare social events and are generally the driving force on the ground. They work closely and on a daily basis with the Board of Trustees and their respective advisors. The President leads the Executive and reports to the Board of Trustees during the Committee meetings.
Hi everyone, my name is Peter and I’m currently studying at Queen’s University in Belfast. I’ve been involved in EYPUK for two years and have been to several sessions around Europe, but the highlight so far was definitely being an organiser at the International Session in my home town of Belfast and Dublin. I’m really looking forward to the year ahead and working with such a brilliant team; I’m confident that we will be able to build on the successes of last year such as the Alumni Weekend and International Session and have another great year with EYPUK!

Hello, my name is Beth and I am the Alumni Development Co-ordinator for this year. My job involves getting as many young people as possible into the EYP community, and supporting them once they are there. I’ve been involved with EYP for about two and half years now in a variety of different roles both in the UK and abroad, and have enjoyed some wonderful experiences because of it. Outside of EYP, I’m a second year student at the University of Cambridge where I study English Literature. I’m really excited about the coming year for our old and new members alike!

Hi! I’m Lucy & will be the EurVoice Coordinator this year. I’m currently on a gap year between A levels & University (like pretty much half of the exec this year!) and hoping to study PPE in September. I’ve got some great plans to build on the fantastic success of EurVoice over the past few years, and can’t wait to start putting them into practice! (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Hi! I’m Emily and I am one of the Regional Session Coordinators for this year. I’m currently on a gap year which I am using to volunteer with Time to Change, as well as fitting in loads of EYP! I’ve been involved with EYPUK for a year and a half now, so I’m hoping to use my recent experiences to help our team of head organisers put on fantastic Regional Forums for this year’s new delegates (Emily.email@example.com).
Annie MacConnachie – Regional Coordinator
My name is Annie and I am a second year medical student at the university of St Andrews in Scotland. My EYP journey started in 2013 when I represented the UK in the Riga International Session. I loved my experience of EYP in Riga so much that I decided to remain involved in the European Youth Parliament. Since then I have worked in various different capacities for the organisation, chairing, working with media and now as part of the alumni executive of EYPUK.I’m really excited at the prospect of growing and developing EYPUK to reach even more students! (Annie.firstname.lastname@example.org).
Hi, I’m Jago and my role in EYPUK is to organise internal communications and make sure everyone is updated on the goings-on within EYP. I am currently on a gap year, and have been in EYP since 2015 and have taken part in sessions all over Europe: from Ireland, to Armenia! I am always available for queries and advice for Alumni (Jago.Lynch@eypuk.co.uk).
