Chairs Training Vienna 2016

We are thrilled to announce that EYP Austria will be hosting an Advanced Chairs Training as well as a Beginners Chairs Training taking place in Vienna from 20 to 21 February 2016. The training on advanced level will be lead by Nathan Hunter (FR) and Lia Pachler (AT). The training for beginners will be lead by Jelena Stevanovic (AT). Join these talented and experienced trainers for an inspiring training event in Vienna!

Beginners Chairs Training

This training will cover the basics of chairing and is meant for EYPers with little or no prior chairing experience. Join Jelena for an amazing training that could be your stepping stone into the world of chairing.

Advanced Chairs Training

Join Nathan and Lia for two days of training in Vienna, taking both your chairing skills and your leadership skills to the next level. This will be the chance for experienced chairpersons to develop their chairing abilities, focusing on the finer academic and personal development aspects of chairing. The training will go beyond committee leadership, as it will also include certain modules on how to lead a chairs team and discussing the different approaches VPs and Presidents can take during a session to optimise the performance and learning of their team. Since this is a training on advanced level (not an introduction to chairing), you should have chaired in at least two sessions that lasted for more than one day in order to participate.

Organisational Details and Registration

The training will start at 11:00 on 20 February and end at 17:00 on 21 February, including two full days of training as well as an evening with dinner and socialising. Please note that the participation fee covering all materials as well as Coffee Break snacks is 10€. Dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday will be at participants’ own expense.

To participate in this inspiring training event, please register at the following link no later than Monday, 8 February 2016, 23:59 CET:

The registration is open for both national and international EYPers. However, since this is an event organised primarily for EYP Austria’s alumni, Members of our National Committee will be prioritised in the allocation of spots. After the deadline, remaining spots will be offered to internationals who registered on a first-come-first-served basis.

If you have any further questions regarding the training, do not hesitate to get in touch with the Trainers of the event. For questions concerning the registration or organisational matters, please contact EYP Austria’s Human Resource Coordinator and Board Member responsible for this event Maria Köpping at
