Department presentation :
The Treasury Department is in charge of raising funds from organizations, foundations, companies and cantonal/federal public fundsin order to allow funding for activites and events organized by SDSA, so that the association can reach its goals.
A word from the department’s chief Rafael Resende :
“When I joined SDSA, I was looking for a reliable student association who would allow me to acquire skills other than academical ones. Being in third year of Bachelor in International Relationships, taking part in an association dealing with Swiss Diplomacy was for me something obvious. We often hear that we live in difficult times. One of the ways to overcome difficulties that humanity must face is diplomacy, in all meanings of the word. The human being must first and foremost maintain the values that allowed him to progress throughout history. It is an honor for me to be able to help building this association this will be a major actor of the International Geneva in the future. I am chief of the Finance department. Both my team and I check the association’s bank account and reach potential sponsors.”
« I joined the association because I wished to get closer to the diplomatic world in order to understand it better. Grasping international stakes and participating in the association’s projects with people who are as motivated and as passionated as me, are the reasons why I joined the SDSA. »
Philippe Dubois-Pèlerin :
« Almost 21 years old. Currently in my first year of Bachelor in International Relationships at the Univesity of Geneva, I am in charge of the SDSA’s treasury. I joined SDSA because of my passion for international relationship and diplomacy, two subjects that I study at Univeristy. Furthermore, I wanted to put my skills as fund manager to good use, given that charge of the treasury in another association. »
