This year, the club will be expanding, and as such, we need a few more hands on deck. There are two positions available from this fall onwards; the VP Marketing and the VP Conferences. Both of these positions will be working under the Vice-President, and can attend Executive meetings and voice their opinion. Both of these positions are hired, rather than elected, and so the term will last until the beginning of the next school-year. Excellent knowledge of and previous experience with Model United Nations is a requirement for both positions.
If you are interested in either of these positions, please send a resume outlining previous Model UN experience and position-specific qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get back to you regarding interviews. Please include full name and which position you are applying to in your mail.
Please note that in order to be considered for a position, a cover letter and a resume no longer than two pages in length is required.
The main responsibilities of the VP Conferences include the logistics and organisation of all the events we will be holding beyond the regular weekly debates. This includes the public speaking workshop, the resolution/proposal writing workshop as well as a mini-conference to be held each semester. This position will also be responsible for deciding which, if any, national or international conferences the club will be attending. Key skills required are good communication with the rest of the executives, a good grasp of logistics and organisational skills, and preferably previous experience with organising events and people.
The VP Marketing will be responsible for recruitment throughout the year, as well as advertising the events we will he having. The VP Marketing will be working closely with the VP Conferences in marketing the conferences and workshops, and also for attaining potential sponsorship of our events. This is a very important position, as our membership and event revenues will be crucial to what we are able to offer our members. Qualifications include excellent communication skills and previous marketing experience/skills.
