Join the GCAP team!

Are you interested in making a difference at Griffith University while gaining valuable experience? The GCAP Committee runs the day-to-day operations of GCAP and the Executive Officers are each responsible for specific parts to make sure GCAP runs efficiently.

GCAP is a new and growing organisation that has made a significant impact in its first year and a half of operations on campus. You have the opportunity to help shape GCAP and give it direction for the future. Being involved as an Executive Officer of GCAP can offer the following benefits:

  • Skill development – Through working in GCAP you will gain program planning and implementation experience, organisational skills, budgeting skills, and more

  • The opportunity to make a difference – GCAP can really make Griffith University Gold Coast a better place to be a postgraduate student

  • Tangible dot points for a CV – Real programs, real money figures, real outcomes. All of these things that add context when you say you have “organisational skills” or “event experience”

  • Potential to travel and learn – Executive Officers may be able to attend relevant conferences, CAPA meetings, and GCAP team-building retreats

Update from the President – 2015 Annual General Meeting

May already! ‘May’ I start out by saying how fantastically the semester has been panning out… GCAP beach days, a big round of Funding distributed and a rewarding Casino Royale party are a few things showcasing the associations’ engagement with postgraduates.  What a ‘may-gnificent’ start!

This month is GCAP’s most pivotal official event – our Annual General Meeting, which will be run by me in the shiny new Uni Bar Function Centre on the 21st of this month. This is open to all our members to attend and have a say in approving the GCAP budget, goals and other policies, and to elect new general members to the Executive Committee. So here is an open call to potential team members – if getting involved in bettering the experience of postgraduates appeals to you go to our website for more information.

Thank you to all of you who have already made donation to support victims of the Nepal Earthquake. This month we are asking you for a gold coin donation, at our FREE Lunch events with all collections going to UNICEF to support their Children of Nepal appeal.  Yet another reason to turn out and mingle – with a purpose.

See you there,

Your GCAPtain,

Fleur McLeary
