The Council of Advice

The organisation of ESN Groningen consists of different organs. Next to the Executive Board and the General board, there is the Council of Advice. This organ functions as an advisory body and provides the Executive Board of ESN Groningen with valuable feedback on its main documents. Additionally, the Council of Advice advises the Executive Board on multiple topics that the Executive Board is struggling with. Other than the General Board, the Council of Advice has no voting rights, therefore, the advice it gives is not binding for the Executive Board. The Council of Advice consists of former ESN Groningen Executive Board members, employees from the University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the President of the General Board of ESN Groningen.
