Supervisory & Audit Committee

ESN the Netherlands has a Supervisory & Audit Committee. The task of the committee is to supervise the national board on behalf of the members. The committee does so by evaluating and auditing the National Board before the second and third NP. The findings of the evaluation are presented during the second and third NP.

For 2016-2017 the Supervisory & Audit Committee consists of Carlijn Verhagen (Fundraiser ESN Utrecht) and Sebastian Kola (Partnership Manager) ISN Maastricht. You can contact them at

National Activity Committee

This committee is in charge of organizing the biannual national event of ESN the Netherlands. This is an event accessible to all international students and active members of the sixteen Dutch ESN sections. In the first semester of this year (2016-2017) a city trip to Prague was organised with over 650 international students. In the second semester of this year a city trip to Berlin takes place with over 300 international students.

For 2016-2017 the committee consists of Paulien Korsten, Karin Ribberink, Bart Augustinus, Franzi Langstrumpf, Christian Le, and Zen Leong Au Duong You can contact them at

Training Committee

This committee arranges trainings for all local board members to obtain soft skills. These trainings can take place during function specific meetings, general meetings or specific training events. For this purpose, ESN the Netherlands is always interested in skilled, professional trainers who would like to contribute.

  • For 2016-2017 the committee consists of Stephan van de Ven, Melodie Zöllner and Daniel Sudmeier. You can contact them via Daniel Sudmeier (coordinating board member) at

PR Committee

The PR Committee is responsible for all PR and Marketing related matters regarding ESN the Netherlands. This entails, among other things, maintaining regular activity on the social media channels, arranging ESN the Netherlands merchandise, guiding the local PR coordinators (e.g. by organising a function specific meeting) and potentially being in contact with external parties for promotion.

  • For 2016-2017 the PR tasks are managed by Jasmin Mathea. You can contact her at


ESNcard Committee

The ESNcard Committee will be working together with the Partnerships Manager on the development and implementation of the ESNcard strategy. 

Alumni Committee

The Alumni Committee would at least be responsible for keeping the contact information of the alumni updated and providing the alumni with periodical updates on ESN, but these tasks could be expanded if so desired by the committee members (e.g. to include the organisation of an alumni event as well). Unfortunately, in 2016-2017 there have been no applications for this committee yet, which means that Daniel Sudmeier (National Board member) is currently the sole responsible for the alumni. If you are interested in joining this committee and supporting Daniel in this task we highly encourage you to contact her at
