What is the difference between passive and active membership?

There is already a small group of international students active member and this usually works out well. For some functions it is required to speak Dutch, but this will be mentioned in the committee overview.

Do I need to live in Tilburg to become active member?

This is not required, but it is will make some things easier for you, for example when there are drinks, activities at night and when you are teambuilding with your fellow committee members. Getting to know other active members can help you finding a nice room in Tilburg. 

I would like to become a board member, what do I need to do for this?

All Asset associations have an application procedure for students willing to become a board member. Most of the associations change their boards once a year, but some change twice a year. Check the website of the association you are interested in to get the information you need, or contact us. The application procedure usually includes sending in your motivation letter and cv, followed by an individual conversation. Mostly students with some previous experience with committees within Asset apply, but that does not mean other students do not have a chance! Ask the current board members for more information if you consider doing a board year.
