Spouse Community Update - Week 10



Tak for sidst

Our Board Members, Tiny and Ben, had the opportunity to speak at the IDCN (International Dual Career Network) networking event at Aarhus University last week. The professional networking event focused on the importance of volunteering in Denmark, and experiences of gaining employment through volunteering. Zahra and Alexia were also at the event chatting to attendees about getting involved in Spouse Community. Thank you to the IDCN for having us, and read on to see our current volunteering opportunities.
 

Join the Spouse Community Aarhus Board!

We are seeking two energetic and dynamic spouses to grow and contribute to Spouse Community Aarhus by volunteering as Board Members in the areas of Communications and Charity.
You will be joining a proactive and passionate Board of members who are committed to growing our network and engaging spouses across the Aarhus community through social and professional networking opportunities, events, activities and charitable initiatives.  
We’re looking for volunteers who are positive, enthusiastic and organised, with a desire to drive projects that add value to our community and members. Ideally you’re a social butterfly who is comfortable speaking to both individuals and in-front of groups, and you’re also willing to lend a hand and support your teammates in their project areas when needed.

We look forward to hearing from you!
