Featured Article - General Assembly Election (14th January 2015)


Dear all,
GIA is electing a new Governing Body to organize its activities, and we cordially invite you to join us in running or voting for the next Chair and Treasurer.

The election will take place at our next GIA General Assembly on 14th January 2015, 18:30, at the Geneva Welcome Center (CAGI, 2nd floor in the room the the left.)

To avoid complications, all candidates must be registered before the election. If you are interested to run as Chair or Treasurer, please contact the Executive Board at

Thank you very much for your interest!


This week, Pickwick's will prepare a special night to show their love for GIA!

Tired of seeing the "sunset" at 4 pm every day, it was time to bring some light to the cold nights of Geneva. The remedy: GIA FLUO PARTY!

People at Pickwick's will prepare a bunch of glowing items: glasses, bracelets, sticks etc... (come early to get yours!)

Once again we will have the Lounge space for us which is right in front of you as you go downstairs.

Make sure you don't miss out on this special GIA event and don't hesitate to bring your friends, the more the merrier!


Beer 50cl: 6.00
Wine: 3.50
Sangria 4.00

See you on Thursday!
Be there or be square!
Your Gia team

Where: Mr.Pickwick, Rue de Lausanne 80, 1202 Geneva

See you Thursday!
Be there or be square!

What is GIA all about? GIA an association of interns working in International Organisations and NGOs in Geneva. Our three main aims are to improve:

- Life Beyond Work (e.g. by continuing and improving interns’ social events like UN Drinks and UN Lunches)
- Continuity and a Lasting Institution (having a formal association will help passing experience and information from one generation of interns to the next)

GIA currently has the following vacancies:

Social Affairs Officer (negotiations, event planning)
IT Officer

Personal Welfare Officer (development of solutions to intern/student housing in Geneva)
