Sophie van Bon - Chairman

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: [email protected]

Otke Esmeijer - Secretary / Vice-chairman

Hi everybody! My name is Otke Esmeijer, I am 20 years old and I am now in the second year of the bachelor Economics and Policy. For the next six months I will fulfill the role of secretary and vice-president of the Mercurius board. This means that I will spend a lot of time working on the membership database and the mailbox. So please send me an email if you have any questions 🙂 In my first year in Wageningen and at Mercurius I started at the Freshmen Committee and this year I joined the Axie. Inspired by fellow committee members, among other things, I decided to take up the challenge and apply for the board. What I liked so much about a board year is the interaction with the members and committees and the opportunity to implement ideas for the association. In addition to meetings and drinks with my fellow board members, I also enjoy running and sports with my Argo teammates. I am looking forward to my board year and many fun activities!

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!

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.

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?
