Actie: Dodgeball against Stuff

Date & time: Monday 24 March, 20:00

You remember those times when you played dodgeball in secondary school? It was awesome right throwing a ball at your opponents as hard as possible. To make it even more awesome, this time we will not be playing against Cover members, but against the study association Stuff. Stuff is the study association for Philosophy, so proof for once and for all that we are the best! Covers' name is at stake.

Afterwards we will go into the city and have a few drinks with the members of Stuff. More information on the locations will be announced soon!

General Assembly

We like to invite you all to the General Assembly! Among other things, a change in our rules and regulations (HR) will be discussed. All documents will be made available (on the website and in the SLACK) one week in advance. We request that you read them before the assembly to let the meeting go as smoothly as possible.

Even though the meeting will be held in Dutch, we will make as many documents as possible available in English, so everybody has the chance to read them and authorize someone else to vote for them. You can find the authorization form and the agenda in your mailbox.

There are a couple of different jobs available, like guiding a group or giving a short presentation in Science Linx.
