Being the President of Warwick Volunteers essentially means that I lead the student Executive Committee. This primarily involves setting our objectives for the year – such as supporting the introduction of Warwick Volunteers Week in term 1 – and monitoring their progress, as well as managing and co-ordinating the work of the Exec. This is mainly achieved through the organisation of Exec meetings, for which I set the agendas and act as the chair, in addition to using social media platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp.
Alongside supervising the work of the Exec, I attend fortnightly Warwick Volunteers staff team meetings and Steering Committee meetings, which take place every quarter. At these meetings I update the staff on the Exec’s activities, acting as the primary communication link between the Exec and the Warwick Volunteers office. Finally, it is my duty to represent Warwick Volunteers internally and externally at meetings and events, such as the Celebration Event held at the end of term 2. -Matt
