The time has come again for the Ipso Facto board to change in February. Our chairwoman is leaving the board after a year of managing the study association. Since our secretary becomes the successor of our chairwoman, we are looking for a new person to fill the position of secretary. The function for secretary will become available in February and therefore we want to invite everyone to our board interest lunches held on 12, 19 and 29 November, from 12:30-13:30 in our office K120 in the basement of the Leeuwenborch. We give a short description of what the board and position entails below.
Join the lunches to get to know the remaining board members and ask the questions you may have about the board, the association, what a board year entails or anything else. We will provide a free lunch for you that day. We hope to see you there! If you are not able to make it then, but are still interested or wondering about something, do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will happily answer them. We ask all those interested to write a letter of motivation elaborating on their motivations to join the board, emailing it to our mail address. The deadline for this motivation letter is December 15th.
Doing a board year is a unique opportunity for further personal development in a way that is often not offered in the regular study program. You will have the opportunity to learn to develop yourself in a fun and comfortable environment, on skills in relation to team work, responsibility, planning, expanding your network and sometimes stress. Additionally, you will learn what it is like to work in an organisation that is part of a bigger system (the WUR) and build a more professional network as well. Last but not least: it is also a lot of fun, with many social activities adding to the experience. Of course, you are free to shape your board year as you like, it is definitely worth the effort! As secretary you manage administration and become the right hand to our new chairwoman, Mariam, whom you may know from our weekly mails. You can find more information on our website: svipsofacto.nl
PS. Maybe interested in one of the other positions? They become available in September, feel free to drop by for questions about those as well.
