The Association Model African Union Bayreuth e.V.
Structures and Aims
Founded in February 2015, the MAU Bayreuth held its first elections in May 2015, and from that point, started to specify the labour division within the Association as well as to develop stable structures. As a result of raising interest, the number of members increased exponentially since the foundation of the Association.
The Association has three bodies: The General Assembly, the Management Board and the Departments. The General Assembly consists of all members with the right to vote. It votes the Management Board and approves it into office. The Management Board is composed of two Presidents, two Secretaries and a Treasurer. The Departments (Education, Culture and Fundraising and IT) assist the Management Board in the execution of different projects.
Furthermore the Association has founded its first section on the African Continent. This section is currently based in Togo at the University of Lomé.
The MAU conference is one of the major activities of the Association in the year. Additionally, the Association organizes workshops on a variety of topics through which issues on African politics, socioeconomic and cultural life are raised.
Joining the association
MAU Bayreuth is open to everyone without any distinction and especially those who are interested in Africa or would like to attain a deeper picture of the continent and its challenges. In this regard the questions are:
How can I become a part of MAU Bayreuth?
Interested persons can take part in the activities of the Association. In particular the Association welcomes warmly people who are interested in Africa and want to get in touch with people from different backgrounds, studies, countries. There joining MAU does not necessarely requiere pre-knowledge on Africa or Africa related topics. Because through the participation in the associations’ events one acquires knowledge on Africa with a huge possbility to exchange with African members of the Association.
