My name is Jan Clerkx and I am the Treasurer of the 54th EFR Board. I am 21 years old and finished my bachelor in Business Administration. This year, I am doing a full-time board year at EFR in order to develop myself and gain valuable experience that I would have otherwise never learned through my studies alone.
As the Treasurer, I am in charge of the financial part of EFR. I started the academic year with making the budget for the forthcoming 12 months. This budget had to be in line with the long-term strategic policy of the association. During the year, I adjust this budget to new expectations of costs and revenues in order to make the right decisions for all projects.
In the end, it is my goal to make sure that every euro spent delivers the intended benefit to the organisation as a whole. This requires me to have a lot of contact with all the different committees and, of course, my board in order to get the most up-to-date information.
Moreover, I take care of the financial administration and make sure that it is done according to legislation. I also vouch for timely payment of invoices and debtors and I sign for every single outgoing penny.
As the Treasurer, I have affinity with financial figures and I am able to keep a good overview of EFR. I can make strategic decisions and have to stand my ground when needed. This means I have to be able to say “no” to my fellow board and committee members. I also identify and manage risks when they appear.
