Dear interested candidates,

A new academic year rolls in so does a new election cycle has to follow. Amongst campaigning, creating awareness amongst students about the importance to vote and winning the election, there is so much to be done. What follows from these endeavors is a new group of people to take over from the current fraction to spend a year representing us, the students of this university, in the university council and beyond.

Naturally, the fraction cannot do all of this on their own. We need your help! One of the ways to support Groep-één is to be present on the electoral list and help with the campaign. Some may even want to join the university council as a member of the Groep-één fraction.

To inform you of what opportunities there are, we have organized an info-lunch. Its main goal is to explain what it means to be a member of Groep-één, what it means to be on the electoral list and what it means to be a member of the fraction. This meeting will be held in the Dorgelozaal in Traverse on the 29th of September during the lunch-break. We welcome everyone to join us!

See you Friday!

Yours Sincerely,

Groep-één
