Margot van Delft
In my role as Chairman, I carry several responsibilities. First, I lead both General Board and General Members Meetings. In addition, it is essential that I am fully informed about everything concerning Magister JFT. This includes actively maintaining contacts, a crucial aspect of my duties. I maintain contact with various entities, including the Chambers of Magister JFT, the Faculty Board of TLS, the Executive Board of Tilburg University, other associations within and outside of Tilburg, and many more.
My duties include developing policy and new ideas, optimizing existing processes, and ensuring a positive work environment within the board. Finally, I am also the Chairman of TiGeAk, an umbrella organization that, in cooperation with other associations in Tilburg, represents the interests of all association boards at Tilburg University.
The Secretary of Magister JFT is the face of the association, both internally and externally. My responsibilities include managing multiple email accounts and overseeing the recruitment process for the central committees of Magister JFT, ensuring that all members find a fitting role within the association. I maintain active communication with students, members, and various stakeholders, including former board members and alumni.
In addition, I coordinate a diverse range of engaging committees, including the Activities Committee, the Ice Committee, and the Almanac Committee. Moreover, I hold the role of Chair within the Application Committee. As part of my commitment to ensuring that our members always have someone to turn to, I also serve as the association's Confidential Contact Person.
Lastly, I am accountable for various administrative tasks, such as maintaining the membership database, sending out the monthly member newsletter, crafting contributions for the yearbook, and, of course, documenting all significant General Board and Member meetings. It is indeed a challenging role where each day brings new experiences!
The Treasurer keeps track of all the finances of Magister JFT. This means I am ultimately responsible for the cashflow of all the Chambers, Committees and Student Party. This also means that I compose a financial plan each year, as well as financial reports. Together with the Auditing Committee, I make sure all of this is correct. Next to this, I also administer the events on the website, as well as coordinate the National Quick Pleading Committee and the trips inside and outside Europe. Overall, a very important function with many different sides to it!
The PR commissioner mainly focusses on promotion and coordinating the mentorship. Next to that I coordinate a few central committees. For instance the First Year committee and the Media and Promotion committee. As a PR commissioner, every day is different and that’s what I really like about my function. One thing that is always the same: Everyday I get the chance to express my creative and social side. For the promotion I manage all the social media accounts and I create content for the central promotion. Next to that I help the Student Party and the Chambers with their promotion. For the mentorship I coordinate all student mentors and work together with the University to give first year students a good start. In short, a very versatile function where you can join very much experience.
As Education Commissioner, my main goal is to support students in many ways. For example, I am responsible for various educational events such as "Fit for The Future" and maintain close contact with TLS. As Education Commissioner, I am also in charge of coordinating pleading association DiCiT and I am the editor-in-chief of SecJure, our independent faculty magazine. In addition, I manage the book list, summaries and exam trainings. In short, a position with many diverse tasks!
