Besides boards, Magister JFT also consists of various committees. Active members and their committee take care of a certain activity or have another responsibility. Committees differ in intensity, but also in whether they are formal or informal. Take a look at what kind of committees Magister JFT has to offer and what they mean.
Do you want to organise the best and busiest get-togethers at Magister JFT? Then the activities committee is for you! With this committee you will organise the monthly drinks, the association weekend, the active members day and more. Besides all the fun parties and new friends, you will also gain new organisational skills. This committee organises activities throughout the academic year.
The almanac committee is, as the name already tells you, responsible for the compilation of the almanac! The almanac is a yearbook, which contains interviews with, among others, board members and committees, which highlights the best activities and, of course, contains the most beautiful pictures of the association's year. Are you creative and do you want to take up a challenge? Then join the almanac committee! This committee makes sure that the almanac is ready for the active members at the beginning of the next academic year.
The Dies Committee is responsible for organising our Dies Natalis! Magister JFT celebrates its birthday on November 20th, and of course that means a party! Every year the committee makes sure the anniversary of the association is celebrated with a great party where all members, former board members and many others are present!
