Every board member spends an average of 8-15 hours fulfilling his/her tasks.

Board and Committee meetings take place in the evening, and so do most local activities. Other than that, the time of any job can vary, usually board members can decide when to do certain tasks themselves. The organisation of a Summer University or Exchange takes place over the course of several days, in which the responsible board members are usually assisted in their tasks by committee members and other board members.

We are not a fulltime board. Most or all of our board members have a fulltime study next to their board tasks.
