The Last Friday: but Beards and Mustaches are forever.

At the last Friday of the Academic Year, we will be hosting an ETC only house party at our ComEx Annemijn’s place, and we call it: ‘The Last Friday: but Beards and Mustaches are Forever’. That is also the theme. Your interpretations are very welcome. And so are you.

For this party, there is a guest list, that you can sign up to via a link that will be posted here on June 8th. Do this soon as we have limited space available. Also, do note that after 10 pm on June 27th we will give your spot away if you’re not there yet.

We’ll take care of beer and snacks, but it is also BYOB. So if you want to drink more and/or something else, bring it yourself. Entrance, therefore, is free.

Let’s all give the year 2013/2014 a thunderous, smashing and magnificent ending.

We do have a few rules: 1. Deelnemer dient lid te zijn van studievereniging Etcetera. 2. Zonder aanmelding zal lid toegang geweigerd worden. 3. Zonder toestemming van het bestuur van Etcetera mag deelnemer geen personen (lid of niet-lid) meenemen. 4. Na tienen verloopt reservering op de gastenlijst en kan plek niet meer gegarandeerd worden. 5. Studievereniging Etcetera en haar bestuursleden zijn voor geen enkele vorm van schade en diefstal aansprakelijk. 6. Iedere vorm van drugs die niet door het bestuur worden goedgekeurd zullen worden geweigerd en kan tot verwijdering van deelnemer leiden. 7.Studievereniging Etcetera en haar bestuursleden zijn niet verantwoordelijk voor overmatig drankgebruik of andere lichamelijke aandoeningen.

Signing up has closed.

Wanted: New Board

Today is the day to send in your board applications and to make yourself part of the new board 2014-2014. If you are that person, you’ll find that you’ll learn a lot, have a great thing to add to your resume, that you’ll receive a fair ‘board scholarship’ for all the work you do throughout the year, and, most importantly, that you’ll have a lot of fun in all of this.

You can send in your application (which consists of your CV and motivation) to studievereniging.etc@gmail.com with the subject Board Application.

YOU could be our next Chair / Secretary / Treasurer / Commissary of Internal Affairs / Commissary of External Affairs!

Haven’t you had any experience in a committee yet? Don’t worry, experience is beneficial, but we will make sure that you’ll enter the year prepared.

————- Function Descriptions ————— Chair As the Chair of Etcetera, you’ll always need to have a clear view of what is going on within the study association, what needs to be done and what you want to be done. You’ll make the agenda for the board meeting, and you’ll lead the board meetings. As the Chair has a general overview, you will also be able to do promotion and the newsletter together with the Commissary of External Affairs. You will join in on all the fun activities that Etcetera offers, from drinks to the study trip. You are motivated to bring Etcetera to yet another level, to work together as a team, but also to fulfill your own duties.

Secretary The Secretary of Etcetera is in some ways the right hand of the Chair. As the Secretary, you’ll make record of the board meetings. The inbox of studievereniging.etc@gmail.com is mainly your responsibility, and together with the Treasurer, you’ll keep the membership file up-to-date, also within the e-mail. You and the treasurer will also be in contact with Athenaeum Bookstore, to organize the book sale twice a year. You will join in on all the fun activities that Etcetera offers, from drinks to the study trip. You are precise and you are motivated to bring Etcetera to yet another level, to work together as a team, but also to fulfill your own duties.

Treasurer As Etcetera’s Treasurer, you’ll manage all the financial business of Etcetera. You are the one to access the bank account and manage any transactions. You’ll take care of the member file together with the secretary, as well as the book sale. Furthermore, you make sure that Etcetera receives subsidy for certain events. If needed, you’ll make an estimation, and at the end of the academic year, you’ll present an financial review. You are precise and still remember the basics of high school math. You will join in on all the fun activities that Etcetera offers, from drinks to the study trip. You are motivated to bring Etcetera to yet another level, to work together as a team, but also to fulfill your own duties. Commissary of Internal Affairs The Commissary of Internal Affairs deals with affairs within the study association that are not directly related to the board itself (but that are still related to the board). You are the board’s deputy in meetings with the ACE, the FECO and the Book Club. It is your task to get the committees going and to keep them going, and to report back what is discussed in committee meetings. You are the one to organize Algemene Commissie Vergaderingen. You will join in on all the fun activities that Etcetera offers, from drinks to the study trip. You are motivated to bring Etcetera to yet another level, to work together as a team, but also to fulfill your own duties.

Commissary of External Affairs As the Commissary of External Affairs, you are the person to communicate outside the study association. This means you’ll be the one primarily in contact with the association of Humanities (Alpha), the student union ASVA, the Studentenraad, and other institutions connected to the UvA. Along with other board member, you are the one to join in on meetings of these institutions. Furthermore, you are in contact with other study associations whenever needed. This also means you will take care of the promotion and the newsletter together with the Chair. You will join in on all the fun activities that Etcetera offers, from drinks to the study trip. You are a sociable person, who is motivated to perform as a team, but also as an individual.

Out of one of the board members, the vice-chair will be chosen. They will take over the Chair’s tasks when the Chair has to be absent.

If you are for some reason unable to send in your application before 29/4, maybe because you only now decided that you want to be a boardmember and you still have to finish your resume, maybe because you’re still in doubt, send us an email!
