Dear member of Kraket,

I hope you are enjoying your well deserved summer vacation. It is also time for new registrations for next years committees.

Almanac Committee
The Almanac Committee is responsible for putting together a fun book with the history of Kraket in the last two and a half years. The Almanac contains stories written by old boards of Kraket, study associations of the VU, study associations of Econometrics in the Netherlands and of course committee members!  

Would you like to make the best book kraket has seen in years? Sign up!

Charity Committee
Note: this committee is only open for first year students
The Charity Committee devises three possible concepts of an interactive activity or a long-term project with a charity for next year and presents this at the first General Assembly. The members will take votes and choose the concept the committee will work on. This past year, our members voted for Het Vergeten Kind, for which we raised a lot of money with the auction!

Would you like to commit yourself to a charity as above and/or do you have organizational talent? Sign up!

Diversity and Development Day Committee
The Diversity and Development Day is a growing success, with educational workshops, inspiring speakers and of course speed dating with potential employers. Together with your committee members, you will be responsible for planning this interesting day.

Would you like to coordinate this eventful day, do you have organizational capacity and are you open-minded? Sign up!

Ecotribune Committee
The Ecotribune is the quarterly magazine of Kraket. It is a magazine full of fun stories about the activities we have done in the last months, information about Kraketters, gossip and many more interesting subjects. Come to the Kraketroom or visit the Kraket site to get a good impression of what the committee is exactly doing. This magazine is a mix of English and Dutch articles. It is always relaxing to read the Ecotribune.

Will you be the next one who makes sure there are enough fun stories for our Kraketters to read? Sign up!

Educational Committee
The Educational Committee is going to be a newly formed committee this year. The primarily objective of this committee is to improve the learning experience for every student. As a member of this committee, you will play a crucial role in gathering feedback and suggesting improvements to teachers.

Would you like to have a significant impact on everyone's educational journey? Sign up!

First Year Committee
Note: this committee is only open for first year students
The First Year Committee is a great way to start your active membership with Kraket. You will organize two activities, a family day and you will guide the high school students who are curious how the life at the university will be.

Does this committee seem nice to you? Sign up!

Happy Hour Committee
The Happy Hour Committee organises various fun activities throughout the year. Among these activities are Sinterklaas, the EGW's (Ectrie Goes Wild's), and two activities you can put in your own creativity. These enjoyable activities bring Kraketters closer to each other.

Would you like to be part of this committee and do you like to organise different activities? Sign up!

International Committee
Note: this committee is only open for first year students, also open for Dutch first year students
Last year we had this committee for the first time. The aim of this committee is to be the point of contact for all our international members. You can help your fellow international students navigating through a big city like Amsterdam, and of course the VU. Besides, you will get the opportunity to organise several activities for the association.

Would you like to contribute to the association by also involving international students in the association? Sign up!

SECTOR Committee
The SECTOR is the editorial committee of Kraket. Unlike the Ecotribune, the SECTOR focusses on companies and the substantive aspect of the study. It is an online platform where articles are published regularly. In recent years, SECTOR was filled with business interviews and articles written by professors and (graduated) students. Furthermore, there are many more interesting topics which appear in the SECTOR, click here for previous articles of the SECTOR.

Do you want to be a part of this innovative committee where there is space enough to process your own ideas, and obtain great connections with students, professors and alumni? Then apply for this committee!

Ski Trip Committee
Note: this committee is only open for first year students
This year Kraket will go to St. Sortlin d'Arves, France, in January. Do you love to ski, snowboard or après-ski and want to be part of the committee? Sign up!

Sports & Games Committee
The Sports & Games Committee is an amazing opportunity to embrace your inner athlete and create lasting memories. In this committee, you are responsible for the exercise of our beloved members. While you normally compete in the UB (University Library), you are now going to compete on the field for the cup. Every once in a while, the Sports & Games Committee organizes a nice sporty activity and our yearly Game Marathon. Sign up!

Study Trip Committee
Note: this committee is only open for third year or higher students
This year Kraket organises a short study trip for its third-year and higher students. During this trip you will visit companies, universities, and of course learn about the culture of the country.

Do you have what it takes to organise a week filled with activities abroad? Then sign up!

Sustainability Committee
The Sustainability Committee has been brought to life not too long ago and has been a great success ever since! In the world we live in today, sustainability is an important topic for the future of the world. Therefore, Kraket organizes a sustainability week. During this week, various activities centered around the topic will be organized every day, including a day where businesses will give presentations and present cases involving the topic of sustainabiltiy. Being part of this committee gives you the opportunity to experience both formal and informal aspects of being a committee member.

Would you like to be part of this committee? Sign up!

Still in doubt? Or do you have unanswered questions about one of the committees? Just ask. You can always contact me (or someone else from the board).

You can join either committee by sending a short motivation to or by filling in the form on the website before the deadline on Thursday August 24th!

Kind regards,

Maarten Moens Internal & Educational Affairs Officer Kraket 2023/2024
