Department Overview :


Vice Presidency

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. Which is why duties are split between two positions:

  • Internal Vice-Presidency: main duties include managing and coordinating the operations of the association
  • External relations Vice-Presidency: duties include project management but also maintaining contact and relationships with external collaborators and acting a mediator between the association and guest speakers, professionals, and partner branches of the association throughout Switzerland
