GENERAL ASSEMBLY PARTY
core applications primer
MESSAGE FROM THE project heads Blessed day to you all. We stand here virtually before you, staring at you from your computer screens, hoping that you join us and embark with us on this journey towards the best GAP ever. ! ! However, you might still be wondering, what is GAP anyway? GAP is both a General Assembly and a Party. It starts off as an assembly particularly for the new MEAn freshies where in they will be given the chance to learn more about and apply for the different MEA projects of the year. However, naturally, we have to succeed this already great GA with a party to remember forever - the party of the year! In order for us to achieve this, we need YOU. We definitely cannot do this alone. It is because of this that we hope that you join us in this journey and together we will make MEAn history! ! Itâ€™s time. Itâ€™s time to fill up that application form, and pursue your chance of destiny.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1. GAP stands for General Assembly Party. Will we be technically working on two separate events? ! Technically speaking, you will be working on one project that is GAP.
