Task Description

My name is Matthijs de Gooijer and I am the chairman of the 97th Sefa board. I’m currently doing my Bachelor in Economics & Business Economics. Previously I have been the Chairman of the Sefa Skillsweek and Chairman of TEDxUniversiteit van Amsterdam.  Because I wanted to broaden my horizon and develop myself on a personal and professional level, I decided to join Sefa and challenge myself with a position in the Sefa board.

As Chairman, I have a central position in the board and focus on the overall cooperation between all board members. I oversee the goals of the association and the long-term strategy in its entirety. To maintain oversight and keep everyone informed I organize and chair weekly board meetings. This also holds for four-monthly general meetings where members hold you accountable for the achievement of policy goals. Furthermore, I am Sefa’s final representative to the outside world and maintain the external relationships.

An overview of the tasks of the Chairman

  • Organizing and chairing all board and general meetings
  • Safeguarding strategic policy goals during the daily routine
  • Communicating extensively within the board, with the university, with other study associations, with the FSR and with Sefa’s supervisory board
  • Acting as the face of Sefa towards outside parties
  • Financial audit
