UAA Council & LCC Kickoff Meeting 2010, Zurich
22 Oct 2010 in Alumni by Jona Hampe
October 22nd - 24th, 2010: Zurich
Without knowing each other, it is hard to communicate the same UAA values and to collaborate efficiently across Europe. For this reason, the Council and the Local Chapter Coordinators (LCCs) meet in the beginning of every UNITECH year in order to get to know each other and to set the goals for the upcoming months.
Furthermore, newly elected council members or LCCs need to learn UAA\'s internal processes and policies. This year\'s kickoff meeting, held in Zurich at the end of October, was dominated by the constitutional changes, which were approved by the UAA members at the previous GA. In particular, we had to translate our overhauled strategy into concrete events and services.
Having a more fleshed-out strategy in place simplified this mapping and avoided lengthy discussion that we used to have in previous years when our overall goals were not as clear-cut as they are today. To give some concrete examples, we decided on a partial redesign of our website, to weave our online presence together with social networks, and to avoid duplication of information and work.
These updates will take place in the next quarter. In addition, the Local Chapter Coordinators have many ideas and plans for events in every Local Chapter. Stay tuned for more details to follow.
