CRNet April Monthly Huddle
Country Representatives Monthly Huddles are an occasion to exchange ideas, join forces, ask questions, and get information about the news in EMA. On 2 April 2023, the OCB unit volunteers had a chance to take a glimpse into the CR team for Bangladesh's recent work.
Three members of their team, Country Representative Sayed Muhammed Baker and Deputy Country Representatives Rakib Raihan and Md. Mahamudul Hasan Mredul presented the strategy implemented by the team of 15 local volunteers to promote EMA in Bangladesh. This included tips on how to form a community of local volunteers to delegate tasks and reach more students; which promotional activities work the best to create engagement among prospective students, universities and other partners, how alumni can contribute to local activities; and how to support job placement and professional development of EMA members.
