Task Description
My name is Thérèse van Woerkom and I am the Treasurer and the Vice-Chairman of the 96th Sefa Board. Last year I finished my bachelor Economics and Business, with the track Economics and Finance. I joined Sefa in the first year of my studies as the chairman of the Career Month Junior committee. Last year I joined the Research Project to China. After these great experiences within Sefa, I realized how much I enjoyed being part of Sefa and that I was up for a new challenge: A board year.

As Treasurer I am responsible for Sefa’s financial position. When things go above or beyond expectation, it is my task to intervene and make sure that the association holds a steady financial course. It is therefore up to me to ensure that Sefa spends money in the most rational way. Moreover, I am the one that makes the budget and approves all plans financially. In the process of controlling committee budgets I have a lot of contacts with each committee’s treasurer. Furthermore, I am responsible for checking and completing contracts regarding companies and projects and for making sure that the administration is up-to-date and gives a reliable representation of Sefa’s financial position.

As the Vice-Chairman I assist the Chairman in carrying out important tasks, stand in place of the Chairman when he is absent and I help the Chairman creating and implementing a long term strategy.
