On February 4th, 2019, the current VSAE Board will go back to studying and hand over the reins to 5 new people. In this week's Aenorm article, you will get to know the 57th board of study association VSAE a bit better.
Godelieve ten Have - Chairman
Hi, my name is Godelieve, I am currently 21 years old and I am now in my third year of the Bachelor Econometrics. Before I started Econometrics, I studied Beta-Gamma for one year. In my spare time I play field hockey and I love to have a drink or two with my friends.
From February on I will be the Chairman of the VSAE. My tasks are to support my fellow board members where needed and to keep an overview over the whole association. My goal for this year is to make this year as fun as possible for all the members of the VSAE as well as for me and my fellow board members.
Aurora Gaffaf - Secretary & External Affairs & Vice-Chairman
My name is Aurora and I am 21 years old. I am currently in the third year of the bachelor Econometrics and I am very excited to be a member of the VSAE board 2019. My position in the board consists of External Affairs, Vice-President and Secretary. It will be quite a challenge to manage this portfolio but I can't wait to start together with my lovely fellow board members! As External Affairs I will try my best to keep up the good relations with all kinds of organizations that are of importance for the VSAE and her students. I would like to explore if the field of partners can be extended. Also, I will try to increase the career possibilities for female students by organizing, for instance, a ladies night with our sponsors.
I can't wait to see all of you during the VSAE events or in one of the committees during the upcoming year!
Eli van Baar - Treasurer
Hi, my name is Eli, I am 20 years old and third-year student at our study. I enjoy playing ball sports and getting together with friends. Also, I like playing old-fashioned board games like 30 seconds or chess (add me on Wordfeud if you dare!).
In the upcoming year, my job is to keep the treasury up to date and make sure that the organisation thrives and achieves its fullest potential. Moreover, I am in charge of innovations within the VSAE. For example, I think that the Learning Academy can be expanded. Also, the Start-up idea can be developed, maybe inserting it into the Learning Academy.
The biggest challenge that the VSAE faces is internationalization. It's still quite difficult to let foreigners feel involved and part of the group, mainly because making friends in another language is hard. We will look for ways to handle this matter.
Altogether, I believe 2019 will be a great year, both for my personal growth as for the VSAE.
Maura van der Linden - Internal Affairs & Marketing
Hi! My name is Maura and I am 21 years old. In my spare time I like to have a beer at the krater and I play field hockey.
Three years ago I started studying econometrics but after a year I switched to Artificial Intelligence. Because I feel so at home at the VSAE I am still here and I will be your Internal Affairs and Marketing next year. For all your questions about committees you can come to me!
Floris de Widt - External Affairs
My name is Floris and I am 22 years old and a third-year student at our study. I enjoy playing soccer and getting together with friends.
Together with Aurora, I will be responsible for all contact with the business partners of the VSAE. We will be in charge of continuing the contact with our current partners and acquiring new partners. Furthermore I believe 2019 will be a great year, both for my personal growth as for the VSAE!
