Q&A about the General Assembly
How can Alumni participate in the General Assembly?
Alumni who paid their yearly 20 euros contribution (free to pay more) to the association can vote and be elected during the General Assembly.
What does it mean to be part of the board? What activities and workload am I expected to deliver?
Being a board member means participating to the management and operational organ of the Association, discussing how to implement our goals and sometimes leading a project (webinars, communication strategies, career day, etc). It is a two years mandate. Usually, board members meet virtually once a month for one hour. Examples of activities that new board members may coordinate are projects/strategy to increase Alumni engagement, social media, skills seminar in Venice and fundraising strategies. The amount of work is decided by free will and consensus, understanding that it is voluntary position.
The General Assemblies are run in accordance with article 13 of the statutes of the EMAlumni Association. The GA consists of all full members (Supportive Members contributing members who paid the 20 euros fee). It takes place once a year and only full members can vote and be elected as board members.
