Being the Secretary of Asset | International Business & Management, invovles several ongoing projects throughout the year. These projects contain keeping the website of the association up to date with all events organized by Asset | IB&M, but also other relevant information about for example companies and committees. Futhermore, you are responsible for the guidelines we provide to the students, which means making sure they are up to date, ready on time.

Other recurring tasks of the secretary are making the minutes of the board meetings (and other important meetings like the Advisory Council meetings, Chairmen meetings & Active Members meeting) and being in charge of the in-and outgoing mail of IB&M. And, just like the other board members, you will also be coordinating several committees, ranging from formal to informal. 

As a secretary, you also are a representative in the Secretary's Meeting of Asset General. During these meetings, you are, together with the other secretaries of the other departments of Asset, responsible for the members database of Asset and the monthly mail that is sent out to all Asset members. 

Besides all these specific tasks, there are many projects throughout the year where you will become responsible for. There also is time to develop your own goals and persue those, with regards to Asset | IB&M and/or Asset | Tilburg. 

As you can see, the tasks of a Secretary are very diverse and include a lot of creativity. Besides the meetings you have to attend and/or minute, you respond to emails, keep the website up to date and make sure there guidelines are on time and on stock.
