Regional Relations Officer

The Regional Relations Officer (RRO) is responsible for maintaining communication with
IPSF Regional Member countries through their Contact Persons to ensure they are satisfied
with what IPSF and the Regional Office has to offer. In turn, the RRO brings forth
recommendations for improvement from members to the Regional Working Group. A
portion of this portfolio is dedicated to the promotion of IPSF and the Regional Office to
Non-Member countries, through mailings and updates, and if possible, by doing promotional
tours and attending other congresses. A continuous nurturing of these contacts is essential
for the growth of the Regional Office and by extension, IPSF.

The RRO is also responsible for updating information lists of Contact Persons, Student
Exchange Officers, and Individual Members in the Region. It is also important to focus on
promoting IPSF and the Regional Office to current members to maintain activity, strength
and faith in the Regional Office and ultimately, the Federation. Likewise, the RRO should aim
to keep track of member events that could be promoted on the EuRO Facebook Page in
cooperation with the associations.

undertake tasks according to the Chairperson with leadership capacity. Likewise, the RRO
should provide their ideas and plans on how to manage external relations in the region and,
