It improved my organisation and planning skills

A few questions to Craig Kershaw on what it means to be the Secretary of the Board.


What do you work on as the Secretary? What skills are required in these works?

"I work a lot with scheduling and writing agendas for meetings, along with taking the meeting minutes and setting action points for the other board members to work on every week. Organisation and Planning are skills I’ve been using a lot in this position and that is something I have also learnt along the way, which I’m very grateful for."


What have you achieved in your mandate 2019-2021 as the Secretary?

"As well as improving my organisation and planning skills, I also learnt what it’s like to organise events for large numbers of people. I also had the freedom to use my UX design skills on doing a user research and improvement project on the Alumni website."


What could you have done better or differently during your mandate?

"Unfortunately the Pandemic had a big impact on the alumni community and we didn’t get a chance to organise the annual meeting, which means I missed out on a bunch of opportunities to learn new things :("
