Secretary & Marketing Affairs Officer - Martijn van Heusden
Hello everyone, my name is Martijn van Heusden and this year I will occupy the positions secretary and marketing officer! As secretary, I'll make sure the administration of our members and the information on our website are up-to-date such that everyone can register for all the fun activitities Kraket has to offer. In addition to this, I'll write most emails to the members and take minutes during board meetings and general members meetings. As a marketing officer, I'll take care of the technical aspect of the position, contrary to Sven, who manages our social media presence. This means that I will design all banners, flyers, posters and all other essential physical promotion. Besides all this I like to play trumpet in a big band and in the weekends I'm active as a scout leader. See you in the Kraket Room or at the next activity!
