MESA is always happy to welcome new members, so don't hesitate to sign up!
The applications for Committee Chairs have been opened!!
While the current situation comes with some uncertainty and may make social activities more challenging, being a committee chair can be both a learning and a social experience. So, if you want to work on activities or projects within a committee, but also want to take an initiative in making sure your committee is on top of the game and be in close contact with the board, do not hesitate to apply to be a Committee Chair!
This upcoming year there will be 6 committees that you can choose to join: Event, Media, Meet The Makers, Travel, Intro and Lustrum.
This committee organizes all social activities. With your creativity you come up with fun themes for the Monthly Drinks at De Doos, think of entertaining questions for the annual Christmas Pubquiz, and organize a glamorous End of the Year Gala. This same creativity can be used in the numerous “non-drinking” activities that you will be organizing throughout the year, such as a scavenger hunt!
As a member of this committee you create the audiovisual content for our social media accounts, managed by the committee, as well as take pictures at the activities. By doing so you are in charge of promoting events, capturing memories and maintaining MESA’s public image!
Meet The Makers
This is MESA’s more professional comittee. You are in charge of gathering the summaries for the exams, but you also organize study related events, such as company visits and lectures by field experts. Working on this side of MESA can help you get contacts within the field and teach you skills that could be helpful for your future careers!
This committee is in charge of organizing a big trip abroad for MESA Members during the springtime. Previous trips to Dublin and Prague were very successful and fun! Last year there was an amazing plan to go to Krakow, and while this sadly had to be canceled due to COVID-19, we still hope that we can go on a trip in the upcoming year!
Members of this committee organize the Introduction Camp in September for all first-year students and have the opportunity to be the first to show new students what MESA is all about! The application concerns organizing the Introduction Camp of 2021.
This committee will be in charge of organizing MESA’s first lustrum in February 2021. You will plan a week with fun activities to celebrate this 5-year anniversary! It combines tasks from the Meet The Makers committee and the Event committee, as this week will be filled with fun informative and social events!
Application closes on 06/09/2020, so don’t hesitate for too long!
If you are interested in applying, please send your CV, motivation letter and the Committee you are applying for to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email, or contact us via our other socials!
