As a chairman, you’re responsible for all activities within the association. The chairman always has to be informed about the development of projects, how things are developing within the departments and commissions of the association and the atmosphere and culture of the organisation. The chairman is responsible for effective communication between departments and makes sure that everyone feels at ease in his or her function. Moreover, the chairman is the person of contact with the university. The key is to look for an intensive and stable collaboration, where both parties gain added value. The chairman also has a seat in the general Asset Board, in which he/she is representing the opinions and thoughts of the Asset S&L board. Within the general Asset Board, subjects like the organisational structure of Asset, the type of cooperation between Asset and the university and the projects which should be set up or discontinued in the association.
The Vice Chairman (VC) coordinates between active members and the promotion of the association.
