Dear friends of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan,

Over the past two years, our organization has grown immensely thanks to your kind support and assistance with our events and membership opportunities. Our tiny all-volunteer Board of Directors and committee members are working hard, but in the past few months, it has become apparent that we have more volunteer opportunities available.

If you are someone with excellent communication and administrative skills who would like to spend some time learning about how our organization operates and you’d like to gain some valuable experience from a well recognized organization in Taiwan, we would love to hear from you!

We are looking for a summer administrative intern to assist our Managing Director and our Membership Committee.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about Taiwan and Canada, and who has some time to give to our organization.

**This individual would ideally be fluent in Chinese and English, and can commit to a minimum of 10 hours per week.

During the month of June, volunteer hours will be higher as our entire organization moves into full swing in preparation for Celebration Canada on June 30, 2018.
