National Action Event (NAE) 2015 was held on November 20-22 hosted by AMSA-UPH. We sent a total of 18 delegates (12 general delegates and 6 debaters) to participate in NAE 2015. On November 20, NAE 2015 started with a welcoming party with all other participants from AMSA-Indonesia. It was the first time to get to know what we were going to do for the next 2 days.
The second day (November 21), we were split into two activities: the debaters participated in the debate competition while the general delegates did a health campaign about cancer in Cilenggang. Both activities have given us a lot of experience and of course new friends! We ended the day with a Farewell Party, in which we were given a chance to watch the presentations from NRPC (National Research Paper Competition) and the winner of PCC (Pre-Conference Competition) EAMSC 2016. (Congrats to our members who have won these competitions!)
Finally in our last day, we did the health campaign #2 in Kota Tua, Jakarta. After that we went back to watch the final round of debate competition (Congrats AMSA-UNDIP!). NAE 2015 was closed with the announcement of the winners of the competition. NAE 2015 was such a great experience!
