Dear ESSA members, attendees to our official launch event, and my wonderful committee,
Wow. I’m speechless, and well, you know me, I’m rarely speechless!
The sight I arrived to on Thursday night was phenomenal, I could hear the buzz and chatter all the way from the lifts! The vision we’ve always had for ESSA has finally become a reality: A room full of people getting to know each other, talking Economics and exchanging numbers.
Our launch night was everything I could ask for and more, it was lovely meeting all our members and chatting about the exciting things ESSA has planned in 2012! Make sure you check out our photos, taken by photographer Chris Chu, on our facebook page (www.facebook.com/essa.unimelb) and tag yourselves!
Thank you to Nilss (Head of the Department of Economics), Preeta (Economics Department Manager) and Neville (Economics Honours Coordinator) for attending our inaugural launch.
Thank you to the amazing ESSA committee: Brendan, Richa, Joan, Christy, Andrew, Esther, Hanbo, Hungy, Dean, Vivek, Pam & Collin. Your hard work, dedication and motivation over the Summer has been outstanding. Without all of you, ESSA wouldn’t have been able to pull the Launch off!
Finally, I hope to see you at our next event, ’10 Things you didn’t know about Economists’ on Wednesday, 14th March in Theatre D, Old Arts Building at 5:30pm. Registration for the event is open now – register your interest here: http://economicstudents.com/events/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-economist/
Thank you again for your attendance, and your support for ESSA.
