Christiaan van Sliedregt
The Chairman is responsible for the overall functioning of the board and ACE itself. Next to that, he is the contact and spokes person of the Association. He must have a clear overview of what is going on within ACE. Moreover, the Chairman needs to keep the long-term goals in mind, while achieving the present goals during this academic year. The function also includes leading the board meetings and General Assemblies. The Chairman is responsible for all the presentations, networking and maintaining the contacts with all parties. Finally, the Chairman is responsible for good internal communication within the board.
Christiaan was born in the centre of Rotterdam and has remained a proud native of this wonderful city. After high school he started a bachelor in Media and Marketing at the Hogeschool. During his studies he worked as a producer and later as a marketing consultant. Unfortunately for him, he became quite aware of the fact that this wasn’t the field he liked working in. He decided to make a bold move by quitting his job and joining the student life yet again, a move he doesn’t regret. Chris loves studying History and the university itself. And what would the university be without a faculty association like ACE? Since ACE provides a great environment for students to socialise and broaden their horizon while enhancing their competences as students, it is not surprising Chris wanted to become a part of it. Therefore, Chris will be this year’s chairman of this wonderful association.
The Secretary works mostly behind the scenes. The Secretary produces the Minutes of the General Assembly and the board meetings, so others can see what has been discussed. He is also responsible for the letters and e-mails ACE receives and is this way also a contact person for members. If the members have questions or if they want to participate in any event, they send an email to the Secretary. The Secretary takes care of ACE’s database and makes sure that all of the member information is up-to-date. Once a month the Secretary sends out the newsletter, thus informing the members of the association not only about past and pending activities, but also providing any important information about the Association important at that time.
Nick will be ACE's Secretary for the academic year 2017-2018. His personality is not exactly that of a wallflower, as he tends to joke around a lot and is always up for a chat with people he just met. He thinks it's important to try something new at every opportunity one gets. This does not exclusively reflect his personal life: it's rather a pursuit for his professional career, which reflects on his personal life. The constants in his life are his passion for politics, history, craft beers, dogs, his loving girlfriend and enjoying good times with friends. For a more concise description: He's a 21 year-old half-Italian born, raised in Tilburg who has lived in Rotterdam for almost two years. He lives in Kralingen and loves joking and laughing with the people whom he holds dearly most of all things.
Puck van den Heuvel
The Treasurer of the association is responsible for the cash flow of the association and maintaining its budget. At every General Assembly he will present the progress concerning the budget so far. Every committee has its own budget and it's the Treasurer’s task to distribute money to the different committees. He needs to check all the Treasurers of the committees to ensure they do not exceed their budget and spend it wisely. Another important responsibility of the Treasurer is the Long-Trip Committee. Because of this committee’s relatively high budget, it is necessary that the Treasurer of the association is a part of this committee as its treasurer.
Puck grew up in a small, but world famous city called Gouda, where he went to school and spent his days eating “stroopwafels” while sipping on some strong black coffee. After finishing high school, Puck made a last minute decision to study History in Rotterdam, where he also had family ties. During the Eureka week he was instantly grabbed by the friendliness of the people at ACE, and thus he joined the team. Skip three years and an exchange to Korea, and Puck suddenly found himself in a suit as a board member of this Association. He hopped on his bike with a dedicated look in his eyes, certain that this year would be the most amACEing one yet.
Internal Relations Manager
The Internal Relations Manager’s main responsibility consists of fostering the contact between our association and the members of the faculty. Other than that, the Internal Relations Manager supervises the book sale and is the person in contact with the StudyStore. In this position he is of service to any student having questions or experiencing difficulties regarding purchases at the StudyStore facilitated by ACE. This year, the internal Relations Manager will also be the Vice-Chairman of the association.
After 2 years of participating in a handful of committees, Karim decided that it was time to give back to the Association by pursuing a board year. With humble beginnings harkening back from his days in Utrecht, his life was definitely not a complete one – yet. It was a life filled with video games, Neopets and not too many rays of sunshine. It wasn’t until he moved to Rotterdam to study IBCoM that his life flourished and that he found meaning in life while at it. Meeting new people and engaging in new activities had sparked a new light in him. All silliness aside, Karim tends to be quite laid-back and relaxed in what he does. There is always time for a conversation or room for spontaneous ideas to be considered; living day by day is what he does best.
External Relations Manager
The main responsibility of the External Relations Manager is to make sure that all the communication outside the campus runs smoothly and that the contact with external parties is maintained in a good manner. He must be approachable, sharp-witted and assertive for it is his task to let ACE grow according to the goals the board has set out for the association, both the long term and short term. Furthermore, the External Relations Manager is in charge of the acquisition. Acquiring new sponsor- and partnerships is a vital part of the continuing growth ACE is going through. Finally, the External Relations Manager takes part in the SGN (Studenten Geschiedenis Nederland) board, which organises the annual SGN day and some additional events.
Ever since a young age, Daan had been curious about the world and why society works the way it does. His attitude of never taking things for what they are and always asking critical questions about certain societal issues we at school should assume to be truth, got him in some serious arguments with teachers at times. Since he thinks ideas should be exchanged freely and that it’s better to sometimes step on a few toes than to just accept everything you hear or read, Daan didn’t mind. However, he does believe debate should be conducted in a constructive and respectful manner, using reason and sources. That’s why he made the choice to study History. His studies gave him the tools to weigh sources and to be a critical citizen. But university can’t be complete without the social aspects of the student life. That’s why he joined ACE, which he considers to be one of the better choices he made in life. ACE helped him meet a lot of new interesting people, which he now considers to be his friends. Therefore, he feels that it’s an honour to represent ACE as a member of the 36th board.

Born and raised in a small town called Geertruidenberg, Noord-Brabant, Romy always dreamed of living in an actual city. So once she made the decision to study History at the Erasmus University Rotterdam there was no time to loose: she was set on making her years in Rotterdam count. She became a member of ACE during the Eurekaweek and participated in two committees every year since. ACE became a big part of her life, both socially and professionally. That’s why this year, instead of graduating her bachelors on time, she is once again devoting her time to ACE. Even though she has been an active member for multiple years now and loved every second of it, this year is going to be the best one yet. Because this year, she will be the Marketing Manager/Editor-in-Chief of the most wonderful Faculty Association Rotterdam has to offer.
