As a first step towards setting up a fully-fledged NOHA Graduates Platform, NOHA is seeking enthusiastic candidates to become members of the Graduates Committee, a body which will oversee and coordinate activities of the Platform, with the support from the General Secretariat. Specific roles and responsibilities of particular positions within the Committee will be open for discussion and agreed upon during the first psychical meeting of the Committee.
