8th of November 2018
We want to invite all fellow PhD candidates and Postdocs to our annual Christmas Party.
There will be food and soft drinks (alcoholic beverages can, of course, be bought).
Together with the Christmas Party we will have our general meeting that takes place twice every year.
The TODOS board will first give a short overview over its work and budget during the last 6 months, then all of you can vote the new TODOS board members and introduce suggestions to change the statutes of the organization as well as vote for them.
Every PhD candidate at UiT is a member of TODOS and can thus become a board member. Positions are elected for one year and are generally reimbursed with a certain amount of hours that can either be used as duty hours in 4-year contracts or as a contract extension in 3-year contracts (for more information please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com!).
Please note that you are all invited to run for open board positions!
For this GM the positions of Board Chair, Chair of Academic affairs and Accountant will be open for the election and we are looking forward to seeing some new faces in the board!
Please register here if you want to participate at General Meeting and Christmas Party and have food.
We wish you a merry pre-Christmas time!
And hope to see you all at our Christmas party.
Your current TODOS board.
Lena, Yannik, Marte, Mikkel, Dipesh, Aakash & Inger Therese
