As Chairman, my practical duties include leading General Board and General Members' meetings. It is also important that I am aware of everything concerning Magister JFT. This means that maintaining contacts is a big part of my job. For example, I am in contact with the Chambers of Magister JFT, the Faculty Board of TLS, the Executive Board of Tilburg University, other associations in Tilburg and from other cities and more. It is my job to work on policy and new ideas, improve processes as they are currently run and ensure that there is a nice working environment within the board. Finally, I am also Chairman of TiGeAk, an umbrella organisation that, together with other associations from Tilburg, represents the interests of all association boards at Tilburg University.
The Vice-Chairman fulfils the duties of the Chairman in his absence. I am also responsible for Magister JFT's external relations. This means that during the summer, I can be found at law firms a lot to make acquisitions and establish collaborations with partners. During the year, I make sure that contact with our partners is smooth and pleasant. I also coordinate the JBT Committee, the NSPW Committee and the Congress Committee. Together with these committees, we organise the Legal Congress, the National Speed Pleading Competition and the Legal Business Days Tilburg, being one of the biggest career events in Tilburg.
The Secretary of Magister JFT is the face of the association both internally and externally. For instance, I manage multiple mailboxes and take all applications for the central committees of Magister JFT, after which I arrange them. I therefore have a lot of contact with students, members and other parties. I also coordinate a lot of fun committees, including the Activities Committee, the Ski Trip Committee and the Almanac Committee. In addition, I chair the Application Committee. Next to that I fulfill the role of Confidentiality Contact Person within the associatoin, to ensure that members always have somebody to turn to with confidential matters. Finally, I am responsible for administrative tasks, such as maintaining the membership database, sending out the monthly members' mail and, of course, taking minutes of all important General Board Meetings General and Members' Meetings. Overall a challenging position, where no day is the same!
The Treasurer deals with all finances within Magister JFT. This also means that I am ultimately responsible for all money flows of the Chambers and the Student Party within the association. As Treasurer, you get a good picture of the internal functioning of the organisation. Together with the Auditing Committee, I ensure that the association's balance sheet is in order. I also manage a large part of the events and corresponding ticket sales. I also coordinate the Travel committees inside and outside of Europe. All in all, a very versatile position!
As PR Commissioner, every day is different, but always just as fun. Whether I'm working on a new insta post or meeting about programme introductions, I can always express my social and creative side. My duties mainly consist of two parts, being promotion and mentorship. For promotion, I manage all social media and create content for on the channels. For the mentorship, I coordinate all student mentors and work with the university to give first-year students a good start. In short, a versatile job where you can gain a lot of experience, but also enjoy being social.
The name already kind of gives it away: the main goal of the Education Commissioner is to support students in every possible way. As Education Commissioner, I organise various substantive events and am in close contact with TLS to discuss new initiatives. Of course, supporting the student also involves other matters, such as managing the book list, summaries and exam trainings. In addition, the Education Commissioner deals with the advocacy society, DiCiT, and I am editor-in-chief of the SecJure, our independent faculty magazine.
