Student Board Director Elections

Feelin’ boss? Become an ActivateUTS Student Board Director

We’re holding elections for our next four ActivateUTS student board directors. This is your chance to actively contribute to the UTS community, whilst gaining industry experience, and levelling-up your resume – plus there are a couple of other cool perks that come with the role (more about that later).

As an ActivateUTS student board member, you’ll attend board meetings and sit on committees where you’ll have your say on the UTS student experience from a higher level. Not only that, you’ll have opportunities to network with a range of professionals (and your fellow board members), speak at events, and be the face of ActivateUTS.

So what’s in it for you?

Besides, having a say in what happens around here, you’ll get:

  • Experience as a board director for a multi-million dollar public company.
  • Exposure and experience to industry and business from a higher level.
  • Networking opportunities with professionals.
  • Public speaking and communications skills.
  • To attend all of our ActivateUTS events and programs (pretty sweet).
  • A kick-ass addition to your CV with referrals and references to go with it.
  • Mentoring from the ActivateUTS CEO
  • Free coffees at The Terrace.
  • A gym membership to ActivateFit.Gym
