We have come to the time of year where the Alumni Association Executive Elections are now taking place. Following the success of having a transition period last year, the elections will take place a couple of months before the end of the current Executive’s term to facilitate a smooth hand over process.
We have had a brilliant year, with a large increase in attendance at Regionals, a second successful Alumni weekend as well as seeing an EYPUK alumnus elected onto the Governing Body. I have no doubt that next year will be even bigger and better and can’t wait to see what it has in store!
The AA Executive is elected by the wider Alumni Body to represent them, and ensure that EYPUK’s events and projects run smoothly and involve as many alumni as possible.
They are lead by the President, and have close contact with their respective advisors on the Board of Trustees too.
Holding a position on the EYPUK AA Executive is a great opportunity to be involved in EYPUK, as well as being a very enjoyable and fulfilling year too!
There are currently seven positions open:
Please the read the roles to see what they entail, and if you have any questions then please contact the relevant person on the role description and they will be more than happy to help.
If each candidate who would like to run for a position on the AA Exec could please submit a manifesto by 2nd July 23:59 BST, then the candidates will be announced after this and their manifesto published. Manifestos should be emailed to email@example.com. PDF is the preferred file format.
Some ideas to include in your manifesto would be:
- What is your motivation to run for that particular role?
- What skills or qualities would you bring to that role?
- What would your aims be for the year?
- How would do you plan to achieve your aims?
Following the submission of the manifestos, they will be published on the EYPUK website and a campaigning period will then begin where there will then be an opportunity for all alumni to ask questions to the candidates. Following this, there will be a voting period before the results are announced.
I am really excited to see all the candidate’s manifestos and I wish the best of luck to everyone standing in the elections!
If you have any questions then please feel free to get in touch!
EYPUK Alumni Executive President 2016-2017
