The St Lucia Chapter of University of the West Indies Alumni Association (UWIAA) is gearing up for elections with a call to all Alumni to submit nominees for executive positions.
The positions are President; Vice President; Public Relations Officer; Social Media Officer; Secretary; Treasurer; and Assistant Treasurer/Secretary.
The UWIAA says its Interim Executive Committee has been proactively embarking on initiatives aimed at achieving the Association’s mandate and invigorating its membership.
As an Authority of The University of the West Indies (UWI), the UWIAA remains committed to fostering a culture of volunteering, networking and fundraising among alumni, so that they view The UWI as a lifelong partner and work towards building One UWI, One Alumni Family.
The mandate of The UWIAA includes fostering and maintaining contact among alumni; encouraging a closer bond of affinity and commitment to the University and engaging in fundraising activities, in order to enhance the development of The UWI and contribute to society.
However, in order to achieve this mandate, The UWIAA says it requires a full-fledged Executive Committee that can drive the Association to realizing the fullest potential of its members.
