However if you want to gain more out of your learning experience and add valuable skills and qualities to your CV, there is a structure to help you have your say, and the level of involvement is up to you.
Although there is a minimum number of two meetings you would be required to attend and if interested you could be on the Executive Committee.
So, what is the Executive Committee all about?
