UQ Michie building

Organised by:
Malaysian Students' Association (UNIQMSA)

Yohooo guys! Hope everything is going well with your exam preparation! While you are busy studying don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful Jacaranda bloom! Be careful though you don’t want them to fall on your head :P

And yes you guessed it from the name of this event page, our annual Sponsorship Drive is back and we are recruiting volunteers! We need you, you, and YOU! Have you ever looked at your membership card and wondered how we get these restaurants or shops to give us discounts? Or are you looking for an opportunity to improve your communicating and negotiating skills? Well, wait no more! The Sponsorship Drive allows volunteers to be behind the scene to approach business owners and corporates to negotiate potential sponsorship deals. Volunteers will also be able to sharpen up their skills that will be very useful when they enter the working world. And if you are worried that you will be looking for sponsors alone, fret not! We are going to work as a group to look for sponsors, so it will be fun and productive!

ON TOP OF THAT, all volunteers will be entitled to FREE UQMSA membership of Year 2017 and a FREE UQMSA T-shirt! (WOHOO YASSS FREE STUFF!!)

There will be a BRIEFING SESSION for all registered volunteers where we will explain more about how the sponsorship drive works and your respective roles and responsibilities. The details of the briefing are as follow:
Sponsorship Drive Briefing:
Date: 22nd of November (Tuesday)
Time: 11.00am-12.30pm
Venue: Michie (Building 9), Room 210

To be part of the Sponsorship Drive, it is required that you are available during the summer (i.e. at least until mid-end of December 2016). You will also be required to do a fair amount of traveling (i.e. to Brisbane City / Sunny Bank / Indooroopilly / West End / Woolloongabba etc.) Please do note that there will NOT be any reimbursements for transport expenses. Should you be interested, please sign up by the 21st of November (Monday) through the following link: http://l.uqmsa.org/sponsorshipdrive2016

Attendance to the briefing is highly encouraged, so do inform us if you’re unable to make it so that we could make plans to brief you at a later time.

The sponsorship drive is also a very good opportunity to improve and make the club better not only for yourself but also for every member. You can do this by completing a short (very short I promise! :D) survey to give us an idea about what kind of sponsors you'd like to have for next year! Link below:

Thanks again and good luck with exams!
