Mikolaj Krzyczmonik
I have been the Treasurer of the Diplomacy Society for the past academic year. I would like to use the knowledge I gained, together with my extensive organizational experience, that I gathered while working for NGOs, tech-companies and public bodies, to continue developing the society.

Together with the committee, we have already accomplished some amazing things:
> We became the largest international relations society in UCL.
> We forged close ties with renown organizations and individuals.
> We ensured that the society is well organized and administered during the troubling times of COVID-19 pandemic.

If I am selected for the next term, I will focus on several projects:
> Supervising the expansion of the society in media and working on brand awareness.
> Ensuring that our services are properly transitioned to face-2-face environment (If that becomes possible!)
> Working with the team, so that we have all the resources to attract best speakers to collaborate with us.
> Re-designing the privileges of membership, so that all the members get most value out of their money.

Ultimately, I do not want to revolutionize the society. If I am selected, it will continue to grow gradually as it does right now.

The Treasurer is the most important job in an organization. Without balancing the budget, events cannot be held and the daily functions come to a halt. The pandemic has given me the opportunity to work with money like never before.

In March 2020, I began working for a cloth mask company. One of my friends had started the company and was looking for help as the business expanded rapidly. I soon found myself in charge of all of the funds going in and out of the company. We had over $6 million dollars in net sales by the end of the year that all had to be accounted for. I was tasked with organizing the funds for the company through organized Excel spreadsheets. I taught myself how to submit monthly sales tax as well as royalty payments for our logo printings. I also had to find grants and loans that the company could take advantage of. I still work remotely and learn something new every day. There were days when I had to fill in for another employee. This allowed me to learn their tasks and diversify my skill set. Being able to adapt to any change became my greatest asset. I worked with the mindset that I could not take no for an answer and that there must be a solution to every problem.

This experience has taught me just how important the treasurer position is. It is true that a house is only as strong as its foundation. I know for a fact that the foundation of the Diplomacy Society will be stable with me as its Treasurer.
Anda-Raluca Epure
As a Mathematics and Economics student, I enjoy problem-solving activities and strategically managing given resources in the most efficient way. Being a treasurer in my Hall’s Association helped me understand how the financial resources should be assigned in order to support all the events and initiatives. Accustomed to the way of maintaining accurate reports and scheduling funds, I think that I could help the society achieve its goals and provide the members with an unforgettable experience. As a Treasurer, I would search for more sponsorship or maybe partnership so as the society can grow and take part in larger scale events. It would be amazing to contribute to the organization of the initiatives along with the President. I would also like to create more connections with other societies, so as the members can have more chances to extend their networking group, but also their knowledge in different related sectors. Finally, I would evaluate the current situation and think of creative solutions for growing, developing, in order to shape the society according to the members’ liking.
