Run for the UCSRN

Be in the Board

Are you interested in running for a board position for the UCSRN. First take a look at our structure and our members before you continue reading. Are you a member of one of our member organization? Congratulations! You are allowed to run for a board position!

There are 6 board positions within the UCSRN Executive Board. All UC students among our members are allowed to run for Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, External, Chair of the Social Committee, and Chair of the Academic Committee. Take a look at the individual position pages for more information!

You will approximately spend 15-20 hours a week on the UCSRN with slight variance between positions. You will be travelling quite often to various parts of the country - you won't always be sleeping at home! The experience is great though: you'll be visiting all University Colleges and meet a huge number of people throughout the country.

Do you have any questions? Hit us up at info@ucsrn.nl.

Have coffee. Know more.

Want to get a better gauge of what the UCSRN does and what you're getting into? Then let's grab a virtual coffee together!

We know there are many questions and considerations prior to running or any student organisation or board. We want to help you make the right choice!

Due to COVID-19, we can no longer have coffee with you in real life. Nevertheless, this won't stop us from meeting with you! We'll just have to independently brew a cup of coffee (or tea!) and bring it to our Skype date.

Sign up here to schedule a date or check out our Facebook event for more information.

We look forward to meeting you :)

Factual information & timeline (CORONA UPDATE)

  • The application is the same as last year, meaning candidates will have to send in a motivation letter and CV. The deadline for this is May 13 (23:59).
  • Once we have received the applications, we will make them public by publishing it on our website. Since we will not be able to meet for a GA physically, the elections will be online.
  • Our members will receive a copy of your motivation letter and CV. They will send the UCSRN board any questions they may have for the candidates by May 19.
  • These questions, along with the questions of the EB, will be forwarded to the candidates and they will be asked to make a video submission of their speech and their answers to the questions. The deadline for these videos will be May 29 and will be forwarded to all members.
  • Members will have a few days to watch the videos and the online voting period will take place from June 2-4.
  • The exact procedure and details of the online voting is yet to be confirmed, but we will update you as the time comes. The voting period will end on June 4 at 23:59.
  • On June 5, we will announce the results of the new Executive Board of the UCSRN! In the coming days after that, the current EB will schedule online sessions to transition the new board. We hope that we can do a real-life transition sometime in August, before the first GA of 2020-2021.
  • All UC students among our members may run for a position on the Executive Board.
