HCAP Returning Staff Application
Thank you for your interest in the 2019 HCAP Conference “Global Leadership in the 21st Century: Empowering Education.”

APP DUE: Sunday, September 30th at 11:59 PM

Here are a couple of pointers before you start:
1. You must participate in both conferences to be a member of HCAP.
(exception: our NON-TRAVELING option, detailed in section 5)


September - December: All HCAP members will help plan our January conference.
January 20 - January 27: We welcome 90 foreign delegates from our 9 partner schools.
March 16 - March 24: We jump on the plane and reunite with our friends abroad for their conference!

Please realize that members will pay for their own airfare in March. All other expenses abroad are covered by the partner school (likewise, HCAP will cover the costs for foreign delegates in January). If you feel that a financial situation may prevent you from participating in HCAP, please consider our NON-TRAVELING option (section 4).
2. Committee Responsibilities:

Alumni Relations: Build strong HCAP alumni connections through LinkedIn and alumni newsletters.
Content: Plan the events of the conference, ranging from speakers to field trips.
Finance: Obtain sponsorships and grant funding for our conference.
Foreign Delegations: Lead your country's delegation and help coordinate travel and hosting.
Operations: Organize food, supplies, and travel arrangements (within Boston) for the conference.
Public Relations + Multimedia: Take photos, design our t-shirt, booklet, yearbook, and video.
Social: Plan and supervise events including excursions, the talent show, Mr. HCAP, HCAP Prom, etc.
3. A brief description of our theme:

As our world continues to diversify, the Harvard College in Asia Program hopes to explore the necessities of effective leadership with our 2018-19 conference theme “Global Leadership in the 21st Century: Empowering Education." Through lectures, presentations, and case studies, we will examine the different aspects of higher education and learn about the importance of global collaboration in preparing students for life, work, and citizenship.

HCAP has had a long-standing partnership with Boğaziçi University in Istanbul. Due to current events and Harvard's elevated risk travel alert on the city, we cannot plan to send Harvard students to Istanbul this coming March.

HOWEVER, we still plan to bring 8 Istanbul delegates to the Harvard conference in January. Our goal is to form a non-traveling Harvard delegation to host and spend the January conference week with them. There will be a separate space on the application to indicate interest in being considered for the non-traveling delegation. Additionally, we may offer this option to students on our waitlist after the initial selection round.
