Dear friends of EFPSA,
Time is truly flying by and we are into the second month of our mandate already – it feels like just yesterday we returned back home! It is with great pleasure we write to you once again, to update you on the last month within the federation.
Since returning from the Annual Congress in Srni, the Marketing Office have been working hard, preparing many photographs for the Webmaster to update our website and for the individual teams too. This work will continue and we will release the official Congress photographs as soon as possible. Also, they have been working behind the scenes with many of the teams, helping with graphical design and implementing CVI.
The Training Office have been busy working and they have opened the call for the Train the Trainers (TtT) summer school, which will take place in Serbia from the 8th-15th August. If you would like to apply, you can find more information here: https://www.efpsa.org/ttt/ttt-2015/why-take-part-in-ttt/ The call closes 17th June at 23:59 CET so be sure to share this as much as possible and get your applications in as soon as you can!
Also, the Conference team are working on lots of things and are really excited by all the applications that are currently coming through. If you would like to apply for the 2nd Conference, which will take place in the Faculty of Arts and Letters and in the University Library of the Catholic University in Ružomberok between the 14th to 17th of November 2015 in Slovakia, then be sure to complete the application form here: https://podio.com/webforms/12172245/836234. The call closes on 30th June at 23:59 CET – be sure to complete this as soon as possible so you do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity.
As well as this, JEPS are currently looking for additional Copyeditors and Proofreaders to join their team. If you are a native speaker (or comparable proficiency in English) and are keen to join this dynamic team and would like to apply, you can find more information here: http://jeps.efpsa.org/announcement/ The deadline for applications is 16th June at 23:59 CET.
Last week, the first Internal Newsletter which was prepared by the EFPSA Office was sent by Clara, the Secretary General. We hope all EBs and MRs received this in your mailbox and really enjoyed reading it as much as we did!
The Members Office have been very busy preparing for a MOC meeting in September, spreading lots of news about the TtT, Conference and JEPS and lastly, but most importantly, preparing for their first e-voting session which has just been opened. We look forward to the results of this being released and sharing more news with you all.
This year, we have decided to pay particular interest to our external collaboration opportunities. On this note, our External Officer, Alex, has jumped straight into his new role and is currently at the IFISO meeting in Budapest and we look forward to updating you on this. Furthermore, the P Team are busy preparing to represent EFPSA at the ECP in Milan, and the SII team will be representing EFPSA at the European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees Annual Forum.
We hope the exam period is nearing to an end for you all and you can enjoy the beginning of your well deserved summer holidays.
Ana, Jayne, Clara, Timo, Blaž, Ioanna and Benedikt
