Why did the current board decide to do a board year?

  • “I was considering multiple options to gain (work) experience, without starting a full-time job. A board year includes work experience while still living the student life, which most appealed to me.” – Gus den Biesen
  • “I was looking for gaining experience during my studies, and as I am still young and in the student life, I wanted to do a board year during my bachelors. It also gives you time to think about what you want to do after your bachelors, which I like.” – Jef Hermes
  • “I always wanted to do a board year, because it opens many doors after you’re finished and it is a whole lot of fun as well.” – Jody Rutjens

What functions can do you during a board year?

Chairman

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.

Vice Chairman

The Vice Chairman (VC) coordinates between active members and the promotion of the association. The VC will talk with potential new active members to appoint a commission to them, which best suits their wishes. The VC also keeps contact with the active members and leads the Active Members Meeting. This meeting consist of the chairs of each commission, considering updates on developments of each commission. The VC also has a place in the Asset Academy (AA), in which all VC’s of Asset come together once a week. The AA is responsible for the promotion of Asset. Moreover, the VC takes place in the Bedrijfseconomie (BE)-cluster: you’ll be responsible for promotion and events of Asset amongst first en second-year bedrijfseconomie studenten. The VC replaces the Chairman when absent.

Treasurer

As treasurer, you are responsible for the financials of the association. You are the bookkeeper, but there is no previous experience with bookkeeping required for the function. After every quarter, you meet with previous treasurers to check your profit and loss statement. Moreover, you present the financial results of the association each half year. You collaborate with the treasurers of other Asset associations, to take care of the general bookkeeping of Asset.

External Affairs Officer

As External Affairs Officer (EAO), you are responsible for all contact between Asset S&L and companies, other organisations and partners. You are the salesman of Asset S&L: you have a large impact on the revenues of the association. Despite finding partners for formal activities, you are also responsible for selling mailings and other forms of sponsorship. As EAO, you are meeting weekly with the Faculty-Wide Organ. In these Acquisition Meetings, a honest stake between responsibilities for organising Asset-wide activities are made. Discussions can heat up fairly, this function therefore requires you to stand your ground.

Secretary

As a secretary, you are responsible for taking meeting minutes, answering mails in the Asset S&L mailbox, coordinating the commissions and making the monthly Asset mail. You have a lot of small tasks which requires you to be precise and organised to perform well within this function.
