Board 2020-2021

Below you can see the board members behind our Study Association 

President - Tom Peeters

Hi, my name is Tom Peeters. I am 20 years old and I am currently in the third year of my Bachelor. In my first years 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!

Secretary - Gert van Leeuwen

Hey! My name is Gert van Leeuwen and I am the secretary in the CODON board. I am in my second year of biotechnology. When I started the study Biotechnology, I was immediately interested in being an active member for the study association. I joined several committees in which I met a lot of people of CODON. Being active in the committees was a really nice way for me to spend my time. Because of this I wanted to commit myself more to CODON. That is why I joined the board. I joined the board last may as a secretary. I make sure all the mail is answered and all the meetings are minuted. I am ready to assist the president when he needs the support. Next to being a board member of CODON, I also like to play handball and run a bit through Wageningen. In the rest of my free time I like to listen to music and to watch movies.
If you have any questions, you can always send a mail or come by in the Hok on Mondays.

Treasurer - Renske Verkuijlen

Hey everyone! I am Renske Verkuijlen, 20 years old and in my third 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 - Nikita Catsberg

Hi there! My name is Nikita Catsburg, 20 years old and I am Codon’s Commissioner of Internal Affairs. It is my job and responsibility to ensure that all internal committees run smoothly and that they set up and execute activities properly. There are a lot of meetings that I attend which makes for a pretty busy schedule for me, and I absolutely love that. Besides the board, I really enjoy dancing, I give dance classes and I follow advanced dance classes. Also I like singing, making music, theatre, drawing, DJing, and doing fun things with friends. I don’t have a fixed day in The Hok, but if you want to ask something or have a nice chat (which I always like), I’ll be in The Hok often in and after the lunch on some days and you can always email or text me!

Commissioner of External Affairs - Lucas van Beers

Hey everyone, I am Lucas van Beers, 20 years old and I am in my second 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.
