ATLIS (Atlantic International Studies Organization) Positions Still Available!

Current Mount Allison students: ATLIS is still looking for applications for three of its executive positions. For more information about ATLIS read about it here: http://www.mta.ca/news/index.php?id=3660


Hello MTA ATLIS members,

As you all know, applications for next year's ATLIS executive were due today. While we had lots of applicants apply, no one has applied for any of the following positions:

1) President
2) Social Chair
3) Vice President Technology/Media Relations

Please keep in mind that while these positions require dedication in planning the conference, most of the planning is actually done first semester, and after the conference is finished in January you have the rest of the year off! This year, the executive met only once a week for an hour throughout first semester, so it's not a heavy burden on the schedule. Furthermore being involved with an academic society such as ATLIS looks fantastic when applying to grad school!!!

Applications for these three positions will be extended Until this Friday, March 23rd at 4pm. To apply please submit a brief letter (roughly half a page) to atlis@mta.ca outlining what position you're applying for, why you want to get involved with ATLIS, and what makes you qualified for the position. Seven executive positions are available, and they are listed at the end of this email (alongside a brief description of duties).

Looking forward to reviewing your applications!
