As the year 2023 comes to an end, we can assure you that we have had a busy and productive year at AS Patras! Specifically, during December, we have been working on our projects, organizing our future plans, meeting new members, and getting to know each other better. We have gained a lot of knowledge and skills from each other and as a bonus we strengthened our bonds.
The highlights of what we have been doing lately are not just limited to a few working groups, but to all of them and also to our prestigious and promising projects. Just to name a few: our IT (Information Technology) team has been getting organized fixing our website, as well as supporting the upcoming episodes of our podcast, “Space Mics”. Additionally, throughout their weekly meetings they are starting to create a database, in order to store and manage our data more efficiently and help our AS to improve our communication and coordination among our teams and members. In addition to that, on Thursday, December 14th, our HR (Human Resources) team organized a Design Workshop in Photoshop and Illustrator for all our members. This workshop was designed to help us improve our skills and creativity in graphic design, which is a valuable asset for many of our projects.
Talking about design… the most creative members of our AS, our artists, the Design Team has been learning throughout their meetings, how to use Canva and Photoshop with the guidance of the Design Executive for this year. The Design team, in collaboration with the PR (Public Relations) team, are also planning the promotion of an upcoming workshop, scheduled in January! Furthermore, the PR team has been brainstorming to make our social media more active and planning to run the newsletter, as well.
The EO (Event Organizing) team, the most exciting and fun group of AS Patras, has organized a night out in a local pub, in order for the members to enjoy themselves and bond! Let’s not forget to acknowledge our BR team, which has been meeting and talking with various organizations and individuals who are interested in supporting our events and promising projects. More specifically, they have been doing research about the kit-plane from the project “Airplane” – one of our most ambitious and exciting ones that needs to start running.
Talking about projects… the Podcast team has been preparing for the recording of their first episode and is planning the upcoming guests and structure of future episodes. Last but not least, our ACC team is in the home stretch, and our promising and prestigious competitive project is ready to conquer the skies. We are looking forward to seeing our team’s hard work pay off!
As the year draws to a close, we couldn’t be prouder and more enthusiastic about the plans we have already put in action and the ones we are dreaming about!
From all members – new and old ones – of AS Patras, we wish you Merry Christmas and a happy, fun and creative 2024!
