Yael Steenman– Secretary ESN Groningen Board 2019/2020

Hey everyone! My name is Yael Steenman and I am the Secretary of the Board of ESN Groningen 2019/2020. I am 22 years old and I just finished my Bachelor’s in Human Geography and Urban Planning. My talents include playing soccer and falling asleep during board meetings. During my minor, I went on exchange to the United States. This was a semester I definitely did not want to miss, and I am very excited for all the activities that we will organise this upcoming year.

Function description

The Secretary function is a position with many clear tasks. I am responsible for the minutes, newsletter, sending out invitations, and being the main contact person for questions from international students. Furthermore, I am responsible for the privacy policy of ESN and work together with the educational institutes and the municipality on the housing issue in Groningen. But besides that, my position contains many more things. This year I am partly responsible for the committee competition and I have two awesome committees to lead, the Sports Committee and the SocialErasmus Committee.

Another thing in your function as a board member is organising the Introduction Week. I am responsible for recruiting all the ESN Crew Members and Introduction Guides who make this week a great success. Next to that, I am the organizer of the legendary Pub Crawl at the start of the Introduction Week, and am responsible for maintaining good relations with all pubs in Groningen.

I’m looking forward to working together with my five other board members this year and dedicate my whole academic year to ESN Groningen. ESN is a great international organisation and we offer all kinds of activities, so I’m convinced everyone can find their place in ESN.
