Advisory Bodies


Ibn Battuta has two very important advisory bodies: the Advisory Council and the Audit Committee.

The Advisory Council 

The Advisory Council was founded in 2003. As the name implies, the Advisory Council confidentially advises the board on many different aspects and policies. This, for example, includes advice on policies concerning sponsorship, alumni, divisions of committees, and many other things. The Advisory Council is also regularly used to explain older (unwritten) rules that are not necessarily clear for newer members. Most of the members of the Advisory Council have been active as board members of the Association themselves, others have specific knowledge that is useful and relevant for the board. For example, there is always one member of the Advisory Council responsible for providing the board with legal assistance. Overall, the council provides a high degree of continuity for the Association and makes sure that the board has a place to go when things become unclear or difficult. The members of the council are established yearly at the third general members assembly of the academic year.

The Audit Committee 

The Audit Committee supervises the financial policies and operations of the current treasurer. Perhaps their most important responsibility is to assess and approve the budget and the annual financial report of the board. Thanks to the Audit Committee, members do not have to be afraid that their membership fee is wrongly spent!
