Volunteer for the AAGE

The AAGE could not survive without input and support from its members. We are extremely grateful to all of those who volunteer their time and/or resources to the Association.

There are a variety of ways that members can help:

Venues

In order to keep our event costs to a minimum, we regularly ask AAGE members to provide space to hold our networking events. Each quarter we aim to host workshops in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Typically we seek a large meeting room or training room facility for a couple of hours over a lunchtime period. The AAGE covers all catering expenses. If you can assist by donating a venue in the future please contact events@aage.com.au.

Panellists and Presenters

We regularly seek representatives from our employer members to provide input into our workshops as either panellists or presenters. The format can be as simple as appearing on a panel alongside your peers and fielding questions for around an hour from fellow members. Being involved on an AAGE industry panel or as a presenter is also a sound way to gain positive exposure and recognition for your company's brand as well as boost your presentation skills. If you are interested in finding out about upcoming presentation opportunities please contact events@aage.com.au.

AAGE Committee

A handful of veteran employer members regularly meet to form the 'engine room' of the AAGE. Representing a cross-section of the broader membership, our dedicated committee members volunteer their experience, wisdom and expertise year on year to ensure the growth and success of our Association. The expectations of a committee member are as follows:

  • Attend monthly AAGE Committee meetings via teleconference (approximately one hour per month).
  • Bring fresh, creative ideas to the table and provide input on all issues raised by the Committee.
  • Advocate the AAGE and support recruiting new members.Attend local events and host events from time to time (e.g. providing venue, presenting or MC-ing).
  • Be involved on a sub-committee or a major project during the year.
  • Be prepared and available to be interviewed from time to time for various media.
  • Attend AAGE Annual Conference and provide input, such as hosting workshop sessions or presenting.
  • Work towards further developing the AAGE and its mission to improve graduate outcomes through networking.

Anyone who wishes to nominate for a position on this year's committee may do so at the Annual General Meeting or at any other time via info@aage.com.au. Nominations must be made using the AAGE Committee Nomination Form.
