The Social Committee is responsible for all of Uppsalaekonomerna’s social activities. Our purpose is to offer all of Uppsalaekonomerna’s members a fun time alongside their studies. We want to gold-plate your time in Uppsala and hope that you’ll get a lot of lovely memories from our events.
The Social Committee is responsible for all of the social events within the association and offers you as a member a fun spare time. The committee is diverse since there is a lot of different types of events, all in order for you to get the most out of your spare time and to find what you think is fun. The Social Committee arranges everything from welcoming weeks, fashion shows and theme parties to gasques, balls and other sittings. Our events can hopefully put an extra touch to your every day and gold-plate your studies with a lot of fun memories.
Whether you’re interested in just attending our events or actually organize one, us in the Social Committee are sure that we can offer you something!
The Social Committee’s meetings takes place every other Monday, on odd weeks. The meetings are held in the KPMG Arena in our association house “Borgen” at 4PM. On every meeting we have a new theme which is intended for members to get to know more about the committee and the active projects. Themes on previous meetings has for example been “To do a project”, “Re-new and create new projects” and “Contact with companies and sponsoring”.
The Social Committee has, beyond their project groups for each and every project, a president and a vice president with overall responsibility over the committee. The president and vice president works for example as support and guidance for project groups, mediate internal contact through the rest of the association and is responsible for start up meetings, status meetings and committee meetings. In the social committee the president and vice president has pretty similar tasks. The president also is responsible of the budget and looks over all project budgets and also the committee budget.
Do you have any questions about the committee, our different projects or other things – don’t hesitate to contact ur. You will easily reach us through our common e-mail Eventutskottet@uppsalaekonomerna.com or our separate phone numbers (see Contact us).
