Becoming a member

Why become a BEST member?

When becoming a BEST member, the numerous interesting and challenging tasks you will be confronted with during your BEST time, will give you the chance to gain experience, develop your personal skills (like project management, communication, teamwork, leadership, etc.) and to work on international level in an atmosphere of friendship, joy and fun. Being a member you can participate in BEST’s internal events, e.g. Work Shops, Train Shops, Regional Meetings, General Assemblies, or when you work in a Committee, in the Committee’s meetings.

Don’t be shy, all of the work is voluntary! We welcome everybody who values trust, fun, respect and fairness!

How to become a BEST member?

You can apply to become a member of BEST at any time. All you have to do is fill out the membership application and wait for our reply. Another way is to attend one of our weekly meetings, which happen Wednesdays at 17:30 in the BEST office (except holidays).

What do BEST members do?

There are many different tasks BEST Gothenburg has to fulfill in various working fields like IT-Infrastructure, Public Relations, Human Resources, Fundraising and Corporate Relations, office facilities, etc. We promote the events of other BEST Groups, and take care that students from Chalmers University of Technology can apply and participate in them. Last but not least, we organise events too, both internal and public.
While internal events like trainings or workshops help us to improve our team spirit and to increase our knowledge, public events like Summer Courses are organised for regular (not BEST member) students. Organising an event means tasks from providing the participants with the logistics they can expect, i.e. doing fundraising, finding accommodation and providing food, up to operating tasks during the event like picking up participants and waking them up in the morning, etc.
