Board 2020-2021

Below you can see the board members behind our Study Association 

President - Frederieke Slager

Hi everyone! My name is Frederieke Slager and I am the president of the 64th CODON board. I am 18 years old and I am currently in the second year of my Bachelor. Since the moment I heard about CODON and their activities, I directly decided to join a few committees. After a few months, I saw an announcement that there were some free positions in the CODON board. I joined the board to challenge myself at new things.  I started in May as secretary and switched to president in November. As president, I am responsible for the board and the association. I make sure everyone completes their tasks. Next to that, I lead the board meetings and the general member meetings (GMMs).  Besides CODON, I swim and I speak several languages: French, Dutch, English. Before I started studying, I swam 5 years at an international level, where I learned a lot how to plan my daily life to combine school and sport. I see that it helped me to combine study and board in my agenda. also like photography even though I do not really have the time to do that in Wageningen. I really look forward to the coming year and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send an email or come by our CODON hok in forum!

Secretary - Tom Peeters

Hi, my name is Tom Peeters. I am 19 years old and I am currently in the second year of my Bachelor. In my first year I decided to join some committees as I really liked all the people of CODON. But I really got involved when two of my housemates joined the CODON board. I decided I wanted to join them the next board change and so I did. Since November I started as secretary and make sure the mail is answered and all meetings are minuted. Besides CODON I really like to ride my bike, especially in the woods. I even took part in the Dutch national championship mountainbiking once!

Treasurer - Renske Verkuijlen

Hey everyone! I am Renske Verkuijlen, 19 years old and in my second year of the bachelor Biotechnology. This year, I will be the treasurer of CODON. This makes me responsible for the finances of CODON. I for example make sure that invoices are paid on time and I check on the committee treasurers. I keep an eye on the budget to see which new and exciting activities are possible. Together with the other board members I try to make CODON better than it already is. Next to being treasurer of CODON, I am also part of a student association here in Wageningen. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me or come by the Hok on wednesdays during lunch!

Commissioner of Internal Affairs - Youri Post

Hey everyone! My name is Youri Post and I am 20 years old. I am currently in the second year of my bachelor. When I started studying in Wageningen and came in touch with CODON I joined a few committees. I really enjoyed being part of them, because you were surrounded by all these amazing people and organizing great events. Initially it didn’t cross my mind to do a board year, but after the Board Interest Drink I became very interested in the position of Commissioner of Internal Affairs. I wanted to do a board year, because I like to take on a challenge for myself and this seemed to be the perfect fit. Now I am Commissioner of Internal Affairs, who keeps an eye on most of the committees of CODON and helps them organizing fun activities. In order to do this, I need to keep track of the committees by occasionally attending their meetings and attending most of their activities. Beside CODON, I also enjoy caring for plants, being with friends, photography, cooking from time to time and discovering new places. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Hey everyone, I am Lucas van Beers, 19 years old and I am in my first year of the bachelor Biotechnology. This year, I will be the Commissioner External Affairs. As commissioner external affairs, I am responsible for contact with sponsors, keeping our website and social media up to date and arranging lunch lectures and excursions. Ever since I heard about CODON I wanted to become an active member (which sadly wasn’t that long ago). Besides CODON, I am also a member of a student association. In my spare time I like to 3D print stuff or build 3D printers. 

If you have any questions, or just want to have a chat, feel free to contact me or step by in the CODON Hok during the lunch on Tuesday!
