Volunteers Needed for Sudirman Badminton Cup

Volunteers Needed for Sudirman Badminton Cup

Sudirman Cup 2017, the largest badminton tournament in the world which will be held for the first time in Australia from May 21-28 on the Gold Coast.

See http://www.sudirmancup.com.au/

The Sudirman Cup involves over 1500 of the best male and female badminton players from 32 countries and featuring the stars from Asian badminton powerhouse countries China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia. It is one of the most popular sports in Asia and has an estimated 220 million players across the world.

We are running a Community Ambassador Program on behalf of Badminton Australia, Gold Coast City Council and Tourism Events Queensland to engage student leaders from the participating countries. This is a great opportunity for students to take an active role in the tournament and represent their country of origin.

What is the Sudirman Cup 2017 Student Community Ambassador Program? 

The Community Ambassador Program is a program where selected leaders in the participating communities (i.e. Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Singapore, Indian, Indonesian, Korean, Hong Kong etc) will be awarded an honorary title of a Community Ambassador to spread the key messages about the tournament in any capacity they can, particularly through their personal and social networks and events. Leaders can come from the below list (but not limited to):

  • Local student leaders and groups
  • University representatives (including University professors, researchers and lecturers etc)
  • International student leaders and groups
  • Community specific sports clubs on campus
  • Badminton players (Male and female badminton current and past players as well as Badminton enthusiasts)

Community Ambassadors can also assist in supporting student groups to attend matches and join other community members from the general community and other universities to come together in official fan groups to support their countries.

Students appointed to the program will receive a uniform, Ambassador kit and tickets to see their country of origin’s qualifying matches.

Students can register their interest by clicking on the link below:

National Council Planning Weekend – Melbourne

This last weekend the ISANA National Council gathered in Bundoora Melbourne for the annual planning weekend. The council members came from all corners of the country as well as our sister organisation in New Zealand. The council rose early and worked on plans and budget for the coming year. Look out this year for our Professional Development webinars, new awards and join us on the Gold Coast for the conference in December!

ISANA is entirely member funded and the Council and Branch members are all volunteers.

“It’s what you choose to believe that makes you the person you are”
It was a privilege to be able to attend ISANA: International Education Association Conference in #wellington #newzealand #2016 as a Victorian State Student Representative #studentbursury .
I never thought that one day I will be going overseas to speak in for what I believe is right for students and represent Student voices .
A few caring people can change the world and #isana is an organisation filled with those few people who are willing to change and help the students #students need to do is to speak up in what they believe to speak up for what they feel is wrong #speakup #studentvoices
