Volunteers wanted for University of Melbourne Open Day!

Calling all UMAA Malaysia members ..
(if you have not joined..find out how here )

The University of Melbourne is coming to Malaysia and you are invited to be part of the team at the University of Melbourne Open Day expo at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Sunday 25 May.

The aim of the Open Day includes:
· Offering prospective students and their families the opportunity to meet University academic and professional staff and to learn more ‘first hand’ about the “Melbourne Model” and its offerings.
· Recognising and demonstrating the importance and value we place on our Alumni
· Continue to profile, position and strengthen the University in Malaysia as a leading institute whose ‘Melbourne Experience’ is an international one, offering world-class research, teaching & learning and best practice knowledge transfer.

Roles for Alumni
Alumni are important advocates for the University of Melbourne. We are seeking 20 alumni (preferably graduates of the last five years), to volunteer at the Expo as part of the University team, to take on a varied range of roles including:
-> Greeting prospective students and their families as they arrive
-> Handing out sample bags
-> Providing directions to seminar sessions
-> MC on the microphone to announce seminar sessions
-> Talking to prospective students and their families about your own Melbourne Experience
-> Assisting with Faculty and course enquiries as required

All alumni volunteers will be given a University of Melbourne branded polo shirt to wear at the event, which will be yours to keep. You will also be presented with a certificate recognising your contribution as a volunteer at the Expo.
A briefing will be held immediately before the event to ensure roles and responsibilities are clear and to introduce the team of volunteers.

This opportunity is limited to 20 alumni only.
