My experiences as chairman of study association Asset

My experiences as chairman of study association Asset

Introduction

In spring 2016, I had been living in Tilburg for eight months, and enjoyed the student life. About one year ago, April 11th, I chaired a committee that organised the Asset Conference. It was the first experience I had with organising such an event. The days just before the event were intense, and afterwards there was ample spare time. I focused on the upcoming exams from my master supply chain management and looked forward to the summer holidays and future employment opportunities.

Things turned out quite different than how they were supposed to go. During my brief time at Asset (Association for Students Studying Economics in Tilburg), I met a lot of great and ambitious people. A new friend which I met during the organisation of the Asset Conference, asked me whether I was interested in a student board year. Without doubt, a board year would be a great experience, but till that moment I had not really considered it. After some thoughts, I realised that this could be a great addition to my development. Especially, the position of chairman at Asset appealed to me.
