Open Call for Northern Africa Regional Representative

Dear members of IFSA around the world,

The position of Regional Representative for Northern Africa is open!

As you certainly know, the Local Committees of IFSA are divided into seven Regions. In order to effectively link these Committees and the IFSA Board, one or two Regional Representatives per Region are appointed. IFSA presently needs one or two highly motivated students to be Regional Representatives for the Northern Africa Region.
This is your chance! If you are a member of a Northern African Local Committee (LC), you can apply for it!

The Regional Representatives act as the information link between IFSA 7 and the LCs in his/her region, which means that you’d be receiving and managing information constantly.
Are you interested in communicating with people online? Do you want to improve your soft skills, get involved in IFSA and make new friends?
Then this is your chance to be part of the IFSA Officials Team for this year!

This spot will remain open to applicants until Monday, 22nd of October, 2014, and the position would run until August 2015.

  • Update contact details of LCs and officials on an ongoing basis, together with the Council and Vice President;
  • Together with IFSA 7, encourage local initiatives and regional forestry students’ meetings to improve exchange and communication within each of the IFSA regions;

  • Continue to improve communication within and between each IFSA region;
  • Work with other partners to find contacts in the different IFSA Regions and to help IFSA to expand its network.Continue to improve the information available to each region on the IFSA website;

Those who are interested need to send:

  • A resume;
  • A motivation letter explaining why they think they qualify as a good candidate and why they are interested in this position;

Please remember that only Northern African IFSA members are allowed to apply.
