Fellowships and Residences
Within Ibn Battuta, there is a lot to do. There are excursions, party’s, trips and socials, all organized by the board or a committee. Fellowships also contribute to this. In fact, they are groups of friends within Ibn Battuta. You could say they are some sort of ‘fraternities’ within Ibn Battuta, with the difference that fellowships are volunteers and have a certain theme if they like. There are also Ibn battuta-residences, where members of the association live.
The Board has started a procedure to become a fellowship or an Ibn Battuta-residence:
The members of the group, willing to become a fellowship, make an appointment with the board where they will be all present. With this appointment, the goal is to motivate why they want to become a fellowship and what kind of activity they will organize. After the board has agreed, the group becomes a fellowship. Provided that there will be an activity within a year.
Ibn Battuta Residence:
The to be formed Ibn Battuta-residence sends a letter to the board on which they invite the board to come over for a drink in their house. During this visit at the residence, the members of the residence will tell the board why they should become an Ibn Battuta-residence and what for an activity they had in mind for the members. After the agreement, the residence will become an Ibn Battuta residence provided that they organize an activity within a year.
Finally: Active fellowships and residences within Ibn Battuta have to organize at least once a year an activity where members of Ibn Battuta can participate in.
