Christmas is coming...

Hi all! This Monday the RDW (Dutch Vehicle Authority) will be visiting us! During the Lunch Lecture, they will tell us all about the software with which Volkswagen tricked the emission tests. They'll also talk about detecting such fraudulent cases using statistical models. Afterwards, we'll all enjoy a free lunch!

On Thursday, we'll have the General Assembly during which we will discuss the current and future state of our association. This includes topics such as what we spend our money on, certain events happening and committees. For this, the board has prepared some documents which you can pick up in the Cover room. Please make sure to bring your copy to the GA, so we can provide all of you with printed pieces!

Lastly, the signups for the Christmas Gala have opened! Make sure to sign up, because you wouldn't want to miss the best party of the year!



We want you to be in a committee!

A committee is a group of friends that work towards a common goal. You can learn about all sorts of topics such as budgeting, planning, sponsoring, and much more! See the website for a complete overview of committees that are looking for members!

ActiviTee: This is the activities committee, also known as the "ActiviTee". They make sure that members of Cover have plenty of fun activities to go to outside the Cover room. You can think of drinking activities, creative activities, relaxing activities or more sportive activities. It has something for everyone! We also have a social (“borrel” in Dutch) every first Wednesday of the month in 't Gat van Groningen. Besides this, we organize a big end of the year party in December and a special big activity before the summer break.

RoomCee: The RoomCee is responsible for making sure the Cover room is kept open and fully stocked with snacks and drinks. The room is a nice place to waste your time and keeping it that way is our number one priority. Every thursday at 16:00, there is a social in the room, the TAD. You're invited to come by for a beer, wine or soda!

YearbookCee: Hi everyone! We’re the (rather small) yearbookcee for this year! Would you enjoy capturing important moments from the last year to look back on? If so, we’d love for you to join us! (Yes that would give you ultimate power over what you and others get to look back on) Yearbookcee Ella, Benjamin & Manon out.

ExCee: This committee organises a multi-city trip for usually more than a week! Joining this committee means to design and plan for the perfect trip for you and your fellow members. You decide on where to go and how to spend the money. You will experience how it is to work towards an extraordinarily rewarding experience, while making friends on the go. For more information and inspiration check out the website of the previous ExCee (Excursion Committee).

Are you interested in joining a committee? Don't hesitate to contact Feline, our Commissioner of Internal Affairs!
