Board 2023-2024

Below you can see the members of the 70th board behind our Study Association 

President - Wouter Lennaerts

Hello there! My name is Wouter Lennaerts, and I am the president of the 70th CODON board. I’m 20 years old and currently in my third year of the bachelor Biotechnology. As president, I oversee the smooth functioning of the association, drawing from my experience as a secretary.

In my term as president, I want to improve our association by broadening our horizon through partnerships with other organisations. This allows our members to completely plunge themselves in the Wageningen lifestyle. I also want to refine our internal organisation for greater efficiency.

In my free time, I like to work out and spend time with friends. Almost every day during Uni hours, I can be found in the hok. Feel free to come by and drink a coffee with me!

Secretary - Kaja Lankhorst

Hey everyone, my name is Kaja Lankhorst, and I am the secretary of the 70th CODON board. I am 19 years and in my second year of the bachelor Biotechnology. Before I joined the board, I was already an active member of CODON. In several committees I was the secretary or the president. I really enjoyed doing this and thought why not try it out on a larger scale.

I really like having a neat overview of what is going on. This is also what I like most about my position. I get to answer most of the mails sent to the association which gives me a nice overview over all things in the association. Next to that I am really looking forward to adding some extra creativity to the association. You get to see this in the weekly mails I send out!

I like to chitchat about anything, so please feel free to chitchat with me when I am in the hok, when you see me walking by or you can just send me an email!

Treasurer - Amarenz Ringia

Hi, my name is Amarenz and 21 years old. I am a second-year bachelor biotechnology student. This year I will be the treasurer of CODON.

Before joining the board, I already was an active member of CODON, and a member of committees. I enjoy organizing things,

and making sure everything runs smoothly. In the board I oversee all the finances within the association. This also means that I have some influence on where the money goes to and therefore give CODON my own twist. Together with the board I tend to move CODON forward. In my free time I enjoy playing volleyball and hanging out with friends. If you see me around the hok don’t hesitate to come and have a chat.

Commissioner of Internal Affairs - Els van Omme

Hi, my name is Els van Omme, and I am the Commissioner of Internal Affairs in the CODON board. I am 19 years old and now in my second year of my bachelor’s degree. Before joining the board, I was already an active member at CODON, I joined several committees and met a lot of other CODON members.

As the Commissioner of Internal Affairs, I am responsible for the committees and activities of CODON. I am the contact person between the committees and the board and make sure activities are scheduled properly. As a result, I am getting to know many more CODON members, which I am very much looking forward to. In my free time, I enjoy sports, such as field hockey and running. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and being active in my student association.

If you have questions or are interested in organizing an activity with CODON, send me an e-mail.

Hi, everyone. I’m Bram Duijster and I am the Commissioner External Affairs of CODON. I am 19 and in my second year of the bachelor biotechnology. As Commissioner External Affairs I am in contact with all CODON’s sponsors and responsible for organizing career related activities like lunch lectures and excursions.

Study Commisioner - Mattijn Mol

Hello everyone, I am Mattijn Mol, and I will be the study commissioner of the 70th board of CODON. I am 19 years old, and I am in my second year of Biotechnology. As study commissioner, it is my job to communicate between the education team and students. Together with the education team, it is our responsibility to improve the quality of education for the biotechnology programme. Furthermore, with the help of the Studcie, I will be organizing open days for high school students interested in biotechnology, workshops, a parents’ day and much more.


I immediately had a good vibe with this study association, and I wanted to become an active member. In my spare time you can find me in the gym, with friends or of course chilling in ‘the Hok’. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me!
