We want to give everybody an opportunity to participate and to expand their skills and abilities. We recruit people with different backgrounds and passions. Whatever you’re good at, whatever your passion – whether your talent is socializing and helping with social events, or organizing and administration, whether your skills include graphic design, translation, information technology, or anything else – we would love to have you with us in ACYA LTU. Even if you don’t know what you’re best at, and want an opportunity to find out by helping out, ACYA LTU is for you. To get involved, just fill out this form.
ACYA LTU is a student-run organization. We exists to benefit staff and students at La Trobe University. There are many opportunities to do this, but these opportunities can be realized only by the help and involvement of its members. Duties are delegated to various members according to need and ability, allowing members to focus their efforts and to share the burden of leadership.
Also, by involving members in the work of the association at all levels, ACYA LTU is able to foster and develop the knowledge, skills, and talents of its members, providing them with opportunities to deepen their experiences, improve their career readiness, expand their social networks, and to involve them in Australian-Chinese affairs.
To make it easier for members to volunteer and participate in the running the of ACYA LTU, there are a number of established positions that members can fill. But we are always looking to grow and adapt to serve our membership. If you have any ideas for additional events or services, please feel free to get in touch with us. If you are not already involved, and want to become an ACYA LTU team member, just fill out this form.
