M5 Ticket Challenge

Posted by unicefadmin in Uncategorized

With M5 coming up this Friday we’d like to promote and just blow up the event as much as we possibly could. So to do that we decided to start a competition between members to see who can sell the most tickets. Since it is a competition there will also be prizes for first, second and third place. First place shall get 4 extra tickets to the event, while second and third will get 2 free tickets.

Jr Exec Positions

Posted by unicefadmin in Uncategorized

The chance to  take over UNICEF has come. Those interested in becoming the next executive members may submit cover letters + resumes to unicef@ucalgary.ca by midnight of Sunday February 25th.  It may seem kinda early but the purpose is to train you so that you fit the role you apply for and aren’t completely clueless once you have risen to the position. You’ll have reading break to polish your resume and if possible do hand it in as early as possible so that we get a grasp at how many people are interested versus the amount of positions available.There will also be interview for select candidates in the first week of March so be prepared… Once selected you’ll than shadow a current executive member for the last event (it takes 2) to get a feel of the tasks you’ll be doing next year. Simple right? OK that is all! Sorry for all the spam and good luck on your studies!
