As the Chairman of Asset | International Business & Management, you are responsible for tasks such as leading the board meetings, maintaining contact with the university, and overall responsible for the association.
This means that it is very important to maintain a ‘helicopter view’ of everything that is going on in and around the association. Furthermore, you have to motivate and steer your fellow board members in achieving the policy goals that you set at the beginning of the year. A challenging task but with room for plenty of personal development throughout the year
This means that you will have a filled agenda almost every week. To give an idea, a normal week for a chairman could look like this:
Morning: Board Meeting
Afternoon: Updating Mail, prepare Asset General Meeting
Evening: Free time
Morning: Asset General Meeting
Afternoon: Preparing Administration Meeting, Webmaster meeting
Morning: Room Duty at Asset General, working on tasks
Afternoon: Chair Secretary Meeting, schedule meetings for coming weeks
Evening: Exchange Dinner
Morning: Attend meeting with stakeholders
Afternoon: Host Year Planning meeting, attend Brainstorm session about Asset Membership
Evening: Monthly Drink
Morning: Meeting with Academic Director of IBA Program, Meet with committee
Afternoon: Finalize left-over tasks of the week, fill in Board Agenda for next week
Evening: Go home
Nonetheless, it requires you to be flexible and agile with your schedule since certain matters require direct attention and could possibly mean that you have to shift with your planning.
Additionally, you will represent Asset | International Business & Management in the general board meeting of faculty association Asset. During this meeting, you will discuss all important issues concerning Asset, get updates about everything significant going on in the association, and keep track of the policy you’ll write with the general board. You will also apply for a portfolio of your choice, which could for instance be the acquisition portfolio where you are responsible for coordinating all externals, or the administration portfolio where you are responsible for the membership administration.
Basically, you are the one who is up to date about all matters within Asset | International Business & Management and Asset, and you make sure that the board leads our beautiful association to a higher level!
