AYA Club delegate wanted!

Dear friends, the Yale Club of Germany is looking for a member to serve as the club's delegate to the Yale Alumni Association for the next 3 years (2016-18).

Your duties as AYA delegate will chiefly involve travelling to New Haven each November (on the weekend of the last home football game) to represent the club at the annual AYA Assembly. This is a wonderful opportunity to visit campus, meet alumni from all over the world and to attend a range of discussion and workshop sessions, fireside chats, the Yale Medal Dinner, and of course the Yale football game.

More information about the AYA assembly can be found here:

If you are interested in becoming our next AYA delegate, get in touch with David Ilten or Hans Christian Siller.
