The recruitment process takes place two times a year, every autumn and spring. In this way we increase the number of BEST Cluj-Napoca members and in the same time we try to maintain the quality of the organization. Every season, over 100 students apply, who must pass a selection process which has two phases: an interview and a Case Study. In the end a smaller number of new members are recruited, thus being easier for them to develop through training sessions and implication in different events. The recruitment process can last up to two weeks.
Motivational Weekend is an event meant to integrate the freshmen in BEST Cluj-Napoca family through a series of trainings, get-to know games and sharing sessions. All these have a very important meaning in the life of the organization because it facilitates communication between older and newer members and contributes to the integration and the personal development of the freshmen.
Throughout three days, there are soft skill trainings for personal development, theme parties every evening, as well as discussion groups with older members to learn from their experience. The event takes place two times a year, every autumn and spring, after the recruitments.
Friends and Alumni Meeting (FAM)
Friends and Alumni Meeting is an internal event that represents a celebration opportunity for our members. Every year, members with experience that helped with the development of our organization have a celebration in which they become alumni and are being thanked for the work they invested.During the whole event, friends and acquaintances are beside the new alumni, spending quality time together. The event takes place one time a year and lasts three days.
The general meetings take place three times a year. These are extraordinary meetings which last a whole day, during which it is discussed all the activity of the organization up to that point and the events that follow.This is also an opportunity for the freshmen to become full members, the future coordinators are voted and the reports and strategies are analyzed. At this meeting participate all the members.
With the occasion of the 19 years of activity anniversary, we organized contests for students in the campuses, a formal gala where we presented our last year activity, we prized for support and implication for our organization not only the members, but also the long-term contributors and the people representing the University.
Because in 2015 Cluj-Napoca is European Youth Capital and because our organization turns 20 years of activity in the Technical University, we wish to emphasize the importance of these two events through different activities which involve not only students, but also the organization's contributors and the members of the management of the Technical University.
