Secretary of the 53rd board of FAECTOR

The position of Secretary is one of the most diverse positions of the board and therefore it is hard to summarise in one piece of text. Each week you will have different tasks and your agenda will therefore never look the same!

Your main responsibility is the well-being of all members of FAECTOR and being the first point of contact for them. In practice, this means that you’ll be doing a lot of socialising.

Next to that, you will have the most committees under your supervision; the Activities Committee, Alumni Committee, Estimator Committee and Eerstejaarscommissie! Therefore, you will often be busy with managing committees and organising events. You attend your committee’s meetings and keep in close contact with the chairmen of the committees. You oversee if the plans of the committees are realistic and doable within the time frame and budget. Supervising four committees and being busy with other tasks at the same time requires a lot of managing skills, but is also a lot of fun as you get to collaborate with many different people!

Next to being responsible for the contact with all FAECTOR members, the Secretary is also responsible for the alumni. This includes taking place in the RECNET board and supervising the Alumni Committee. It’s your task to promote RECNET and make sure you keep attracting our alumni. Besides that, you’re in contact with the alumni office of Erasmus School of Economics. Finally, as Secretary you also get to organise an event for all former board members; an evening you will not forget.

Furthermore, you keep everyone up to date concerning FAECTOR’s activities through mailings. You take care of the monthly mailings and FAECTOR content in other mailings (from e.g. the ESE or the EAV). You also get to write the almanac articles to enclose in other association’s almanacs and make minutes of the weekly board meetings and the general member assemblies.

During a year as board member of FAECTOR you get the chance to develop yourself in various ways and you get the chance to make everlasting contacts and friendshipsthis is only a small summary of what the Secretary of FAECTOR does, but a board year is so much more than just your own tasks! A board year is definitely a year where you truly develop yourself on many different aspects and you create everlasting memories with lots of different people!

In short, these are the main tasks of the Secretary of the 53rd board of FAECTOR:

  • Be the first link between the association and its members
  • Our alumni association RECNET and contact with the RECNET board
  • Supervising the Alumni Committee
  • Supervising the Eerstejaarscommissie
  • Supervising the Activities Committee
  • Supervising the Estimator Committee
  • Handling all incoming and outcoming information
  • Contact with other (study) associations and monthly mailings
  • Minutes of Board Meetings and General Assemblies
