A key role of the president is to ensure that not only the board, but VSA Amsterdam as a whole runs smoothly at all times - which is a joy, because the friendships built with like-minded people makes it a lot more fun!
President 20/21
Working on creating VSA Amsterdam and being on the board for the last two years brought me so much! I've made many connections and gained great friendships.
Vice-President 20/21
I already had experience as a treasurer before applying to VSA, which is why the task came quite natural to me. Therefore during the past year I got the opportunity to take on different tasks and expand my skills in other areas. I am really grateful to have gotten this opportunity and to work together with such amazing, like-minded people.
Treasurer 20/21
Being part of a board and running an association together is definitely something I would recommend to everyone. It teaches you a lot about yourself and you're able to build new and close friendships.
