  • 1.  Opportunity for position as new HCM Student Representative!

    Posted 08-11-2023 07:38

    Dear HCM students,

    We hope you all had a great, fruitful conference and safe travels back home! After a year of much-appreciated work by Andrew Scarffe, he will, unfortunately, leave as one of HCM's Student Representatives. The reason is one to celebrate though: he will soon be graduating! Congratulations Andrew! Consequently, a position as Student Representative will open up soon.

    What do you do as a Student Representative?

    In short, we are the voices of the HCM students in the Executive Committee. We join the monthly (online) Executive Committee meetings and represent the students of the division. We help organize the Emerging Scholars Consortium at the Annual Meeting, send in PDW's, and organize the Student Social event on the Thursday before the official start of the Annual Meeting. Additionally, we co-chair the Student Engagement Committee, which is still in its start-up phases. The position allows for a lot of personal input and creativity - any things that you think can benefit the students of the HCM division can become part of your role as Student Representative. Please note that the position is for two years: there are two Student Representatives who change every other year. Andrew will leave this year, Robin will leave the next year, so you will then be working with a new Student Representative.

    Why should you apply?

    Being Student Representative is an amazing opportunity in many ways. It allows you to meet many people in the HCM division, work with them, and learn from them. It allows you to think about the needs of students within the division and help facilitate these needs, in which there is a lot of freedom and creativity in how you want to do this. It is an amazing learning opportunity in which you get to improve your leadership skills, communication skills, organization skills, and many more. If you like working together with a diverse group of people and advocating the voice of the students, then this might be the perfect position for you!

    Yes!! How can I apply?

    You can apply by sending an e-mail before August 18th to Andrew Scarffe and Robin Peeters (ascar083@uottawa.ca rej.peeters@maastrichtuniversity.nl), including:

    • Your name
    • University
    • Email address
    • When you are expected to finish your degree
    • Whether you are expecting to be at the annual conference in 2024 and 2025 
    • Briefly explain why you want to serve as a Student Representative (may speak to prior leadership experience, potential goals, benefits of participation with HCM, etc.)?

    We are looking forward to your application! If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an e-mail before applying. 

    - Andrew & Robin
