Half Speed Ahead

Hello everyone!

Tabea is on holiday (again, not still) in London with Arwen and Luca is visiting family in France -- the board is at half strength only this week unfortunately... Tabea couldn't find time over the weekend so here I am again (for the last time, surely).

Since it's already Tuesday evening, there's not much to report. First, we've got the Beta Business Days tomorrow and on Thursday! This is a great opportunity to get in contact with a ton of interesting companies in and around Groningen, who congregate here to show themselves off to you. I hope you're signed up by now, because registrations have unfortunately already closed.

On Thursday, Cover's perennial annual party will happen at 't Gat van Groningen. ActiviTee has pulled no punches this time, putting 500 euros on the tab for free drinks for you and you friends. Come by and have some fun in one of Groningen's most popular bars!

Last but not least, the Board is running another Board Interest event on Friday: the Board Interest Brunch. This is a casual setting for you to ask board all your burning questions while enjoying some free breakfast with us. Don't miss it, especially if you are considering doing a board year. Remember that we are also open to scheduling coffee meetings at one of Groningen's many cafes with you -- an individual chat if you want to know more from a specific person. We're paying!

That's all for this week. I hope Tabea is really back next week, this is getting a little laborious.

With educational greetings,

Richard :)

We want you to be in a committee!

⚠️ Here is a cool thingy for our new members: Ever heard of 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!

DisCover is the name of Cover's magazine and of the committee behind it. The committee is responsible for gathering, creating, and editing content, and determining what goes into the magazine. We are hoping to start with a new edition of DisCover soon, so there is a lot of freedom on how it is going to look like. If that interests you, this is the perfect time to join DisCover!

Do you like money? Do you like having a job? Then ComExa is the committee for you! ComExa is the Extern's right hand, and reaches out and manages contacts to companies for Cover. Being a part of this committee will let you gain a deeper insight into Cover's corporate exploits and into the industries that target our members. Currently, ComExa is busy planning the Cover Career Day so they can use any help!

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

Nice to know
