Event committee


First we have Milou (Amy). Milou has better balance than a monkey, or at least she thinks she does. When Milou gets tipsy she has the tendency to stand on suspiciously stable looking objects. So far she (barely) survived but we can’t guarantee she’ll make the end of the year. That's precisely why we've crowned her as part 1 of our external/acquisition team. And in case of an emergency, well, Mads is ready to swoop in.

Then we have part 2 of the external/acquisition team. Our favorite steam engine / tar machine: Mads. Mads is a bit delusional because no matter what he claims, he can’t stop smoking. But, he's got some redeeming qualities... Somewhere - perhaps buried beneath the ashes of his countless cigarette butts... Anyway we love Mads.

Our treasurer / grandma of the group is Annemieke. Every time we don’t know something about the committee the first person we ask is Annemieke. Don’t let the fact that she did a board year fool you, so knows just as little as we do. Apparently wisdom doesn’t come with age.... She does however do a great job doing the finances. How she does it remains a mystery, but the results speak for themselves. 

Then we have our secretary Isabel. AKA the baby of the group. Instead of sucking on a pacifier, Isabel prefers a vape. Isabel and her vape are like Tom and Jerry, Bonny and Clyde, Mads and Melle: inseperable. Spotting Isabel and her vibrant red coat from a mile away never fails to bring a smile to our faces.

The creative mastermind of the group: Jewel. Jewel is in charge of promotion. Our wonderful promo posts were made by Jewel. And I hear you think: “How do I get this creative??” Well, brace yourself for the secret recipe: avoid vegetables like the plague. I know, it sounds absurd, but trust us, Jewel swears by it.

Last but not least, let's talk about Luuk. Luuk holds the esteemed position of our chair, steering the ship of our committee with finesse and determination. Just like his career at VIP, his dating life is as active as ever - quite the whirlwind, if you ask us. Yet, amidst his romantic misadventures, Luuk ensures that our committee stays on track, always completing tasks on time and keeping us organized. Frankly, we're not sure what we would do without him.
