With less than two months until the 30th EFPSA Congress in Portugal, the EFPSA Working Community has been working steadily on their projects in preparation for the end of the mandate.
The Board of Management was reunited in Northern Ireland between 28th February and 6th March for the second Board of Management Meeting of the mandate. Throughout the week various ideas on the development of the Federation came together, as well as preparations for the end of this mandate and the start of the next. Check out our photo album for an insight into the meeting. Prior to the meeting, Ana Odabašić (President), Jayne Hamilton (Vice President), Clara Chetcuti (Secretary General), Blaž Podobnik (Marketing Officer) and Benedikt Rićny (Events Officer) represented EFPSA, its Events and Services at The Psychological Society of Ireland’s (PSI) One Day Conference for Early Career Psychologists at Trinity College Dublin. We would like to thank PSI for the wonderful opportunity to attend and present at the conference.
Additionally, the Call for applications to the Board of Management for mandate 2016-2017 is now open and closes on the 17th March 11:59 (CET). While we are sentimental at this mandate coming to an end, we are excited to be opening this opportunity for seven highly motivated individuals to lead and develop the Federation.
On behalf of the Training Office, we are also pleased to announce the Call for applications to the Training Office for mandate 2016-2017. Should you be interested in trainings, the training system and community within EFPSA, you can find more information about this Call and how to apply here. Do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity and apply by 20th March 23:59 (CET).
While preparations for the Train the Trainers Summer School and the Joint Executive Board & Member Representatives Meeting are underway, the Train Advanced Trainers (TAT) 2016 is currently taking place in Krakow, Poland and we wish all the participants and trainers a productive and enjoyable event! Furthermore, we are pleased to announce the topic of this year’s European Summer School (ESS), Cognition and Behaviour: Changing Patterns, which will be held in Izmir, Turkey.
EFPSA is also currently collaborating with student organisations involved in the European Healthcare Student Associations’ Summit (EHSAS) on the Interprofessional Collaboration and Education Survey. This short questionnaire is directed towards students of dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physiotherapy or psychology in European countries and we encourage you to contribute to this research by filling in the survey yourself and sharing it amongst your colleagues and friends.
Finally, the Organising Committee of the 30th EFPSA Congress is currently making the final preparations for the event while the Organising Committee of the 31st EFPSA Congress in Azerbaijan is working on the promotional materials to present to us at the Congress in Portugal!
In this penultimate postcard, we would like to thank all the teams for their constant hard work for the Federation and we wish you all a productive month in the finalisation of your tasks and projects!
Wishing you all the best,
Ana, Jayne, Clara, Timo, Blaž, Ioanna and Benedikt
