Joshua Levitt
I have been a member of the society for 2 years now and would love to be more involved with the committee. I am willing to sacrifice my own time to ensure the society runs as smoothly as possible and complete all my task with the utmost respect.
Any committee members ultimate goal is to have the society and its members in the best interest, and that is what I aim to do!
Shavak Matalia
Hey guys!

I’m Shavak and I’m running to be your next treasurer. My experience in the club over the past year has provided me with a clear vision of the opportunities for improvement.

As your treasurer, I will allocate funds towards more regular and inclusive social events to pursue a boost in the uptake of the society membership. I will further aim to provide full transparency behind the club’s financial decisions, including venue and sponsorship decisions.

Studying economics for my degree has fostered my communication and numerical skills. Moreover, I have a keen sense of responsibility, approachability, and enthusiasm. Altogether, I am confident these qualities make me a great fit for the role of Treasurer and so I very much look forward to the prospect of serving you at the club in the coming term.

Hello! I’m Jun Zhe and I am a first-year BSc Economics student running for the position of Treasurer for the Table Tennis Club.

As the founding member of the competitive table tennis team in junior college, I recruited members and managed the logistics of training sessions. I am familiar with the operations within the table tennis club and I will ensure that funds are allocated efficiently when it comes to booking training venues and getting the necessary equipment for training.

My main goals as treasurer:
1. Ensure fiscal prudence as there may be lesser funding and it will be potentially harder to get sponsors. I will ensure that the funds are allocated sustainably.
2. Persevere in finding more funding opportunities by getting more sponsors.
3. Explore the possibility of having sessions in the third term to give more opportunities for members to train or simply de-stress during exam term.
4. Assist the Committee members and plan more social events to increase the cohesiveness of the club.

I believe I am fit for the treasurer role as I always pay attention to details and will keep track of all invoices, revenue, and costs effectively. I have financial experience in fund managing and financial statements and I hope to apply these transferable money management skills when being responsible for the club’s account.

I feel that being the treasurer is the best way for me to contribute to the Table Tennis Club and I hope that you would all vote for me!

First and foremost, I love table tennis. It is a sport that reminds me of the fun times with my family and friends. Likewise, I want to make table tennis as an avenue for students to take a break from their studies and have fun.

Although the coronavirus pandemic hindered most of the activities, my main goal as a treasurer will be to foster an inclusive, supportive and open environment for all table tennis enthusiasts by securing venues as much as possible for training and arranging friendly external competitions for all skill groups. Moreover, coming from a sports background in high school, I would work with the other committee members to push for more activities to build a camaraderie spirit within the society.

Having past experiences as secretary and liaison director for school societies and nation-wide organisations, I believe I have the necessary skills to bring forward for the society, such as financial management and forming partnerships with other schools and societies.

All in all, I want to make the UCL table tennis society a place for students to keep fit and have fun as well as to make new friends while also realising our students’ maximum potential in table tennis.
