Call for Next Year’s PILAS Committee (2015-16)

DEADLINE 29 May 2015 (Friday)

Please do let us know if you're interested in being a part of next year's PILAS Committee. It's a great opportunity to have a go at conference and events organisation, as well as lots of other skills. We're looking for a group of 4-6 students, preferably based in the same place. But if you're an individual or part of an interested group from lots of different universities, please do still express your interest!

If you'd like to make a committee proposal, you should allocate provisional roles amongst your group (President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer as a minimum). You should also state how you would build on the work of this year's committee and indicate a new project or innovation that you could bring to PILAS. More details can be found here.

To submit a proposal or ask any questions about the process of forming a committee, don't hesitate to get in touch.
