CUOS Working Group Members

We want to start a working group to clarify what information CUOS (Central Executive Board for Student Organizations) requires and in what format. Besides that we also want to know if there are possibilities for Cover to improve its position/score.

Next year (2016–2017) CUOS will gauge again for funding, so we want to be done before the end of 2015–2016. We expect the working group to report to the board, with both progress reports and a final report in June.

Interested in joining? Mail Deadline: 28 Feb.
