Elsa Kuik & #8211; Chairman

Hi! I am Elsa Kuik, 19 years old and at the moment I am a second-year bachelor's student of the study Business and Consumer Sciences. For the past six months I have fulfilled the role of Secretary / Vice-President and for the next six months I will fulfill the role of President. As President I am the contact person of the association, I keep the overview and I lead the meetings. In addition, I am committed to good team spirit (and a lot of fun) within the board and I make sure that everything runs smoothly.

In my spare time I love to think, dream and talk about food, to try new recipes and to cook together. It will not surprise you if I tell you now that I am a real food lover. Besides enjoying food, I also really enjoy Zumba, being creative in the PromoCie committee of Mercurius, spontaneous dancing and nice evenings with friends!

I am really looking forward to the next six months and I hope to meet you at our activities organized by the Mercurius committees!

Would you like to chat while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea together? Come along 't Hok, in the basement of the Leeuwenborch. See you soon

Sophie van Bon & #8211; Secretary

I am Sophie van Bon, 21 years old and a second year student of Business and Consumer Sciences. In the coming six months I will fulfill the position of secretary and vice-chairman. This means that I answer all emails, keep the membership database up to date and I am responsible for contact with members. The reason I'm going to do a board year is that I want to get to know as many members as possible (corona-proof of course).

Before this I was a member of the AIDcie and now I am chairman of the family day committee. In addition, I am on the education committee and I am a member of SSR-W. Next year I will also be a viewing board member of the FoodCie and the family day committee. In my spare time I enjoy cooking vegan food together with friends and trying out all the coffee shops in Wageningen!

I hope to see you soon at one of Mercurius' activities! You can always reach me by email: secretary.mercurius@wur.nl.

Lukas Jannink & #8211; Treasurer

I am Lukas Jannink, 18 years old. I am currently in the second year of my bachelor's degree in Economics & Policy. After a year on the freshman committee, I was sure that I enjoyed being actively involved in the study association. Partly for this reason, I am going to assume the board position of treasurer of Mercurius next year.

As treasurer my position concerns all financial matters of Mercurius, such as invoices, subsidies and other financial matters. In addition, it is my task to be of support to committee members who are treasurers, when necessary.

I look forward to next year and hope to meet many of you during activities. If you have any questions or comments, you are welcome to email us or visit 't Hok!

Wessel Reusken & #8211; Director of Education

Hi everybody! My name is Wessel Reusken. I am 20 years old and I am currently in my second year of the bachelor Economics and Policy. When a board position became available, this seemed like a good opportunity to develop myself further alongside my studies and to dedicate myself to fun and educational activities for my fellow students. I am also a fan of the Mercurius activities and I thought it would be nice to be able to contribute to this.

I have now held the position of Director of Education within Mercurius for six months, and you can also count on me for the next six months. As the person responsible for education, you can always contact me for questions and comments about your training. In addition, I am responsible for maintaining contact with study advisors, course evaluations and the availability of qualitative summaries on the website. But the most important thing for me is a good learning environment for the students and a form of education and educational activities that is tailored to the preferences of the students.

So if you have a question or a comment about your study, or about anything else I can help you with, feel free to drop by t 'Hok or send me an email!

Noah van Blaaderen & #8211; Director of Human Resources

Hi, my name is Noah van Blaaderen and I am 18 years old. I am a 2nd year Economics and Policy student, and this coming year I will be the Director of Human Resources of Mercurius! Last year I was a member of the Freshmen Committee which I really liked, because of this I started to study Mercurius and I chose a board year.

As director of Human Resources I am responsible for all committees within Mercurius. If you have a question about a committee or are generally a member of Mercurius, you can contact me! I ensure that contact between members and the board is maintained and that the general atmosphere within the committees is good. I organize activities such as an educational course, the committee market and committee evenings.

I hope I will meet many of you at the Mercurius activities! For questions about committee work or just a chat, you can always email me!

Carlijn Oskam & #8211; Director of Public Relations

Hi! My name is Carlijn Oskam and I am 21 years old. I am currently completing the bachelor Business and Consumer Sciences and I hope to start with MME afterwards. I discovered while writing my thesis that I enjoy getting in touch with companies. That is why the Public Relations function is perfect for me. I also enjoy drinking wine with friends, playing games and reading a good book.

In the coming year I will therefore assume the position of Public Relations within the Mercurius board. My activities mainly consist of approaching companies and having contact with other external parties. This results in internships for members and sponsor contracts, for example. I approach these companies together with the acquisition. In addition, I am a viewing board member of the Professional Committee. They organize activities for master students, which I will soon be part of myself!

Do you have any questions, comments or just fancy a chat while enjoying a cup of coffee? Feel free to visit 't Hok or send me an email (unfortunately you will not get any coffee)!
