Early Morning

Friday, April 1, 2016

Today I came in for my early shift in the Board room. The sun was shining through the window and it was completely quiet. A Board member from ‘Van der Waals’ came by. She was also the first one present of her Board. She came in to have a nice talk. Because it was such a beautiful day, we decided to play some nice music which emphasised this beautiful spring morning.

With the goal of getting less agenda items on the semi-annual GMM I planned another GMM. Normally this semi-yearly GMM takes some days to complete. A lot of committees who want to be discharged and a lot of financial stuff takes place there. I thought if I get most of these committees discharged already before the semi-annual GMM it saves a lot of time. Well, I should have thought twice. It did save a lot of time on the GMM itself, indeed, but as a President you need to prepare for a GMM, mostly, together with your Secretary.

Something not everybody knows is that we as Thor also got a committee which is a committee of almost every student association of the TU/e (except CHEOPS). It is called ‘Wervingsdagen’, they organize 3 large events every year one of which is the Career Expo on March 1 and 2. But this is not a promo talk, it is about the fun side. This year they have their lustrum and therefore they organized a gala last week. Daan, Thomas, Jasper and I went to their Lustrumgala. 

A week as an External Relations Board Member

Sometimes you see the board busy in their room in Flux 6.184 or sometimes you see them playing Minecraft and you might be wondering what the hell we are doing during a week and what are they doing if they are not in their Boardroom. Well, I can say: they are busy; doing important things but also relaxation activities. Let me recapture for you how my 15th week as a Board member. Have fun reading!

Sometimes we think it is necessary to spend some more time on BV’s (Board meetings), so last week we had BV three times! Just kidding, the 3BV is a meeting with our sisters-associations from Delft and Twente. This time we were invited by the ETV from Delft to have a meeting at their place. So we went on a journey north.
Because some of us we wanted to have a small walk in Delft after the long train ride, so we deliberately took the wrong bus. Off course this was all planned and we were exactly on time at the meeting.
