my name is Jim de Boer and this year I am the Digital Systems Officer and Vice Chairman of the 75th board of study association Aureus. I am responsible for our website, supervise a number of committees, and also manage our IT systems. As Vice-Chairman, I am responsible for making strategic decisions and supporting the Chairman in managing the association.
In addition to these functions, I will also be a Counselor within Aureus this year. In case you want to talk about anything, I will always be ready to offer you an attentive listening ear. It is important to talk about things that are bothering you and expressing your thoughts out loud can bring a lot of relief. Besides serious conversations, I am of course always open for a pleasant chat.
Last summer, I finished my bachelor Business Administration with the specialization of Marketing, at the Vrije Universiteit. My first contact with Aureus was during the study trip to Budapest. I had signed up for that to meet more people and I more than succeeded. During the trip, I met many friends and was convinced to sign up for a committee. The following year it was my time to organize the study trip, which went to Prague this time. Together with my fellow committee members, we made it an amazing week. Organizing the study trip did leave me wanting more, and I soon found out that a year on the board is the perfect opportunity to develop myself. I hope to make it a fantastic year together with the rest of my board!
