What a board year at AEclipse is like
ARE YOU READY FOR A CHALLENGE?
Besides contributing to your fellow students' study experience, a board year teaches you many valuable skills, both on a social and a professional level. Board positions involve responsibilities for large events and coordination of committees, which gets you out of your comfort zone and prepares you for your future. Among others, you will improve your networking and presentation skills, practice people and time management, and get managerial work experience. Board positions also come with great flexibility to focus on what you want to develop and the freedom to organize events you are passionate about!
GROW YOUR NETWORK
Meet a lot of people from many different backgrounds, get in touch with interesting companies and university representatives, and practice your networking skills
IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS
As a board member, you will face responsibilities and challenges you are not used to. This will allow you do develop management skills that will help you thrive in the future!
WRITE YOUR OWN AECLIPSE STORY
With great responsibility also comes great freedom to engage in projects you're interested in and focus on what you want to develop
CREATE YOUR COMMUNITY
Above all, being part of the board is fun! Take part in social events, meet the active members and get close to your board. Make friends and enjoy all the pro's of a board year!
