The General Members’ Meeting (GMM) – September 15th

The General Members Meeting is the highest body of the association, and it is composed by all the members of SEC. The goal is to officially vote in the candidate Board, and vote out the previous Board. The old board presents their end of the year report, and the new board presents their policy plan, goals, and annual budget.

You should attend the event if you want to know our plans for the upcoming year and what we aim to achieve while serving our Board positions.

September 15th, 7pm to 9pm
Room A1.02 REC

There will be free pizza and drinks!!
We hope to see you there!

The Introduction Weekend  – September 18th
After 2 years of waiting, we can finally have an introduction weekend for our first years in person!! The Introduction weekend is a time where new Sociology students can get to know each other and spend time together during a fun day.

Usually, an entire weekend is dedicated to it, but this year, because we are still not sure about possible corona regulations, and to make sure everyone feels safe, it will be only one day long (but do not worry! There will be a members’ weekend in February where we can catch up with everything)

The Introduction Day will happen on September 18th. We will post information about it and the ticket sale on instagram, so make sure you follow @sociologisch_epicentrum to stay up to date!
