The SDSA’s Vice-Presidency is comprised of two positions that are very attractive for ambitious people. The main goal is to be available for the association’s members and the different departments. The array of tasks is wide and can include answering a simple question, coordinating different activities in collaboration with other associations or resolving tenuous situations. Being diplomatic is therefore mandatory, as well as being at ease with people and knowing how to keep things confidential. It is important that members have a trustworthy person to confide in, which brings us to a second point: the vice-president’s role is to support the president. It is true that it is not easy having a global overview of the situation, their role is therefore to help the president see the bigger picture. Furthermore, the Vice-Presidency bolsters the implementation of a long-term vision.
A WORD FROM THE INTERNAL VICE PRESIDENT
“Very inspired by the SDSA and deeply convinced that it can offer me many opportunities, I joined the SDSA in Autumn 2021. Parallel to my studies, I wanted to join an association that allows me to develop and acquire professional skills and meet other motivated and engaged students and diplomats.”

A WORD FROM THE EXTERNAL VICE PRESIDENT
“When I arrived in Geneva for my Bachelor in International Relations, I was looking for a way to deepen my knowledge on diplomacy and the professional world.
Passionate about international politics, global stakes and the humanitarian field, I decided to join the SDSA, not only to learn and develop future soft skills that will turn out to be essential for my professional career, but also to meet other motivated and involved students focused on their objectives, and I can also be part of a project that never ceases to grow.”
