The General Secretariat department is composed of two people who head the administration and project management. They also attend to clerical tasks, including managing the association’s email, calling meetings, responding to emails, and transferring information from one department to another. Therefore, they are responsible for interdepartmental coordination and internal communication within the association. The secretaries carry out their tasks in close collaboration with the President and the Vice-President. The Secretariat also handles room reservations for events and records the minutes during committee meetings and General Assemblies. The incumbents must have a strong sense of responsibility and outstanding organization skills. Discretion is also a must, given that they work not only with the SDSA, but with external partners as well.

A WORD FROM THE SECRETARIES
“Having grown up on the French-Swiss border, I have always been passionate about the cultural differences between countries and how to best understand them. When I decided to start my Bachelor’s degree in International Relations, the Swiss Diplomacy Student Association (SDSA) quickly became the solution to deepen my passion for multilateralism and diplomacy. I therefore joined this dynamic and professionalizing association in October 2022.”
“As an international student, I discovered the SDSA through the conferences and workshops organized by the association. With a particular interest in international relations and diplomacy, I decided to join the SDSA to improve my skills and acquire new ones.”
