NUS PBG EXCO 2014/2015

Scene

Members of the Pro Bono Group were gathered at the Staff Lounge for the elections

It was the annual Pro Bono Group Elections on Wednesday, 19 March 2014.

First, congratulations are in order. A big congratulations to Wei Zhen, the newly elected President, and Vu Lan, the newly elected Vice-President.

Hopefuls

Our President and Vice President Candidates, Vu Lan, Ashley, Ting Fang, Wei Zhen and Sneha (Left to Right)

The afternoon saw many heart felt speeches by the candidates. Many of the candidates shared their motivations behind their passion and enthusiasm for pro bono and community work. We really had a stellar bunch of candidates that applied this year.

It is no surprise that all the candidates were elected into the Executive Committee eventually.

So with no further ado, the NUS Pro Bono Group would like to introduce the Executive Committee of the NUS Pro Bono Group for Academic year 2014/2015.

The EXCO is noticeably larger in numbers this coming academic year
In light of the Mandatory Pro Bono Scheme, we have expanded our executive committee to a total of 20 members and 3 ICs, to provide a stronger infrastructure to support more students when the mandatory hours start counting.
Alongside the 20 exco members listed below, we have been blessed with the support of Jayaraman Sanjana who will be exploring the development of a Coroporate Pro Bono project, Jerrold Au who will be spearheading a project with a focus on children as the beneficiaries, and Jolynn Lim who will be sitting on the Local Organising Committee of the 3rd Southeast Asia Pro Bono Conference.
It is hoped that with a larger team, the Pro Bono Group would be able to provide for more opportunities for the students to pursue a myriad of pro bono activities.
Do give the new EXCO all the support and love!
