Announcements from the Board
Would you like to know what has been going on in W.I.S.V. ‘Christiaan Huygens’ lately? The Commissioner Public Relations will ensure that you are up to date within 10 minutes!

Announcements from the Verification Committee
The Verification Committee will present their feedback about the Board and their policy progress.

Progress Board of Aquisitioners
There are many possibilities as a CH student to come into contact with interesting companies, take for example our lunch lectures or the company dinners. To make those collaborations possible there is a group of four within the Board called the ‘Board Of Acquisitioners’. Are you interested in what kind of collaborations CH has with companies and if the Board of Acquisitioners is on their way to their target for this year? Be sure to not miss this!

Semi-annual Financial Report
During this presentation the Treasurer will inform everyone about the financial situation of the association.

Semi-annual Education Report
Education is one of the most important topics within our study association. So important that two board members are working on it full-time. During this presentation, the Commisioner of Applied Mathematics Education Affairs and the Commisioner of Computer Science Education Affairs will present their semi-annual education report. This report includes a comprehensive update on the important changes in education and the policy issues they have been working on.

Progress Policy Board 66
Every Board writes its own policy, denoting what the Board wants to add, improve and/or change within the association and the education this year. On the General Assembly dated 5 September 2022, the policy of Board 66 was presented and on the upcoming General Assembly, a comprehensive update on their progress will be given by the Chair.

Increase of Board Loan
During a board year, the Board can receive a loan from the study association in order to spread the costs incurred during the year over 2 years. The current limits were set in 2005 (€500 euro as a soft limit and €750 euro as a hard limit). In the meantime, this has become worth a lot less due to inflation. The Board notices that it would be nice to increase this as this would spread the financial burden of the Board more. Since there has not been a major problem with paying off the board loan in previous years, the Board proposes to increase the board loan limits to a soft limit of €700 euro and a hard limit of €1000 euro.

Election Honorary Chairman
This year the honorary member Prof. dr.h.c. L.J.M. Rothkrantz of W.I.S.V. ‘Christiaan Huygens’ has been nominated to become the Honorary Chairman for his commitment and dedication to the association. During this General Assembly, a vote will be taken to elect the new Honorary Chairman.

Election Members of Merit
Every year, members of W.I.S.V. ‘Christiaan Huygens’ are put forward to become a Member of Merit as they have contributed an exceptional amount to the association. During this point on the agenda, a vote will be taken to elect the new Members of Merit.

General terms and conditions
The Board wants to install general terms and conditions for participants of activities organised by W.I.S.V. ‘Christiaan Huygens’. These general terms and conditions include topics like rules about refunds, a code of conduct and rules about liability. Furthermore, the Board wants to propose that these general terms and conditions can only be changed by a General Assembly.

Budget LANcie
From the 12th until the 14th of May the ninth edition of AreaFiftyLAN will take place ( During this presentation the LANcie will present their current progress, their budget and how they will make sure this years’ edition will be even more spectacular than previous years!

Financial Settlement NWERC
