Regional Sessions: Call for Organisers

This Spring, EYP  Switzerland is proud to host its third round of Regional Sessions. We are now holding an open call for Organisers to join the Head Organisers in making these four Regional Sessions as good as last year’s. Helping to organise a Regional Session is a great way to foster EYP in your own area.

The regional sessions will take place in four Swiss cities during February and March 2014. Organising at one of them will require attendance at 2-3 meetings before the session. Whilst a very pleasant way to try out orgnaising and gain first experiences in it, joining the organising team will be a fairly small task.

Together with the head organisers, you will be in charge of organising one of our one-day regional sessions in Basel, Bern, Geneva or Zurich, involving various tasks such as communication with participants, inviting patrons, organising and preparing venues for the session. The exact task distribution will be decided on within the definite organising teams according to the head organisers.

We encourage you to apply for this position and to hence help the head orgnisers and EYP Switzerland to make the EYP experience accessible to more students from all over Switzerland.

We encourage all members of EYP Switzerland to apply as an organiser filling in this form until 22 December 2013.

Further information including provisional dates can be found in the Call for Organisers.
