NTUVAS Main Committee Recruitment Interview


You are really interested in what the VAS does, and want to contribute to our society in a big way. You want to stand at the forefront of  the VAS’s future endeavours. You believe you have what it takes to get the job done and help lead the club onto new and exciting paths. Then you’ll want to join the VAS’s Main Committee!

Straight after our Welcome Tea session, the VAS will be conducting a recruitment drive for all levels of membership, including Main Committee members. For all you aspiring Maincommers out there, the first step to become one is to go through our Main Committee Recruitment Interviews, held on the 27th and 28th of August (Thurs & Fri) 7pm at TR 4 . Come down on either of these days, and we’ll see if you have what it takes to accept a maincomm position. There is no prerequisites to join! Even first years are welcome to apply! If you find that those timings are not agreeable with you, send us an e-mail and we’ll try to make alternative arrangments!

After getting through the interviews, the next phase would be the main comm elections held during our Annual General Meeting on a yet to be confirmed date. Better start getting prepared to woo the voters over with a speech!

You may be wondering, what Main Comm positions are up for grabs. Here’s a basic list of club portfolio positions that are open for the elections:

  • Publicity I/C (2 X positions)
  • Business Management (2 X positions)
  • Logistics (2 X positions)
  • Project Management (2 X positions)

In addition, each of the three subclubs have Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson positions that are up for re-election, including our very own AnimeWorks! We really hope to see people dedicated to our line of interest stepping up to take a shot!

If you have any questions about the different positions and portfolios, do come down to our welcome tea session to learn more directly from our current Main Committee. Otherwise, as always, we accept any and and all E-mail queries.

Also, Watch! You’ve asked for it in feedback during Animation Revelation event and we’re giving it to you! More Screenings!. That’s right,  Animeworks present AnimeWorks: East to West! a screening event that will kickstart the welcome tea session off at 7pm!


We believe that animation, no matter its country of origin is a wonderful medium, so here we are presenting one episode each of some of the best shows from both sides of the Pacific! And we’re letting you! The good people of NTU, choose what theme will our screening follow.

Will it be “It Came from Outer Space!” featuring an episode each of hit anime The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi and cult fav Invader Zim.

Or will it be “Superheroes Unite!“, also featuring an episode each from action extravaganza Read or Die the OVA and the ever brilliant Justice League Unlimited?

You Decide!  You can pop down to our Welcome Week booth anytime till Wednesday 19th of August to cast your vote on which we shall watch, or send in your e-mail to! Polls close Wednesday! Stay Tuned and We’ll update with the results soon enough.

UPDATE! The people have spoken. The poll results are in and “It Came from Outer Space” theme won 11-7! Come Wednesday we’ll be showing, one episode each from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi and one episode from Invader Zim at the start of our Welcome Tea! Even if you may have followed these series before, do try to come down to watch them, watching as a group can be a much different experience from watching by oneself. For those of you who voted for “Superheroes Unite”, fret not, we’ll try to find someway to not keep you hanging, and maybe we’ll include the shows into other future screenings!
