KEI-board

 

The Executive Board  is a team of 7 people that works full time for a year to organise the KEI-week. The team is active from the 1st of December to the 30th of November. This year is jam-packed and sorely needed in order to organise a 5-day event with 5000 first years and 1000 other students. In the year, you get to know; all the ins and outs of Groningen and its organisations; you work together with an enthusiastic and motivated team; you come into contact with lots of large companies; you are closely in contact with the university and the university of applied sciences in Groningen; and best of all, you give 5000 students an unforgettable introduction to their life to their student career!

Every year hosts a new Executive Board, which means the KEI-week stays dynamic and each Board gets their chance to make the KEI-week their own. Each year has a new theme, a new feel to it, and events which reflex the change in the students organising this week. As the Executive Board, this year represents an opportunity to let your creativity, your ambitions and your enthusiasm run wild!

In order to organise a fantastic KEI-week, the Board needs to invent and organise events, get sponsors on board and recruit hundreds of volunteers. As well as this, they need to get as many KEI-lopers (participants) on board as possible, and keep in contact with student associations and other organisations with an interest in students.
