Ibn Battuta as a association is marked by its big number in active members. an active member is someone who takes place in a committee or workgroup. Ibn Battuta has 10 committees so there should be one for everyone! Almost every committee has a meeting on a regular base at someones home. Al the way up to the early hours of the night with pleasure of all kinds of daintys they talk about the imporant and chitchat. With all this cosiness or as the dutch say gezelligheid, they also organise nice, relevant and intressting activities. from pubcrawls to ice skating to lectures and company visits, they organize it! One committee even organizes a trip to some country(ies) for 49 people!
Every Member of Ibn Battuta can become member of a committee. You can sign up throughout the year for different committees. Once you sign up for a committee, and the board picks you, you are a member for one year of that committee. A committee excist at least out of 3 members but can go up to 7. Next to that, in each committee there is also one board member. The board member keeps the committee up to date about the association and visa versa. The board member also keeps track on the planning, so activities will be well planned next to your study program!
If you have interest in participation in one of the committees, keep a track on the Ibn info board next to the coffee room. Sollicitations for these committees are open in september, january/february and may/june. Sign up and the board invites you for a small talk in which you motivate yourself why you would be the perfect candidate for this committee.
