Next to all our internal affairs, we do collaborate with all the TSB associations. We do that by multiple workgroups we implemented. This way the associations and we are able to provide better events and information.
The different workgroups are:
The Acquisition Workgroup focuses on getting partnerships which are interesting for our students. Our workgroup includes POLIS, INPUT, Complex, Versot and the SCT. This year we are focusing on the TSB card. This card will include discount for multiple companies in Tilburg, such as the Boekanier or Nondejeu. The goal is to put more companies on the card which are interesting for students. This year the Acquisition Workgroup will be hosted by Joris Soolsma. In the Acquisition Workgroup the following board members of the Study Associations take part: Celine Bruggemans (Complex), Lisanne Osseman (INPUT), Mara Kolkhuis Tanke (POLIS), Birta Kohra Singh (Versot)
Faculty Association IDEA aims to provide students of Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences with useful training and information. The activity workgroup will organize two formal activities and two informal activities in the academic year of 2021-2022.
These activities will be organized in collaboration with the four Study Associations. One formal activity will be career-oriented and the other one will be study related. In addition, two informal activities will be organized to promote interaction between TSB students. One of those activities will be the BEHAVE cantus, held at main partner the Boekanier. This year the activity workgroup will be hosted by Charlotte Ewals. In the Activity Workgroup the following board members of the Study Associations take part: Celine Bruggemans (Complex), Cas van de Pol (INPUT), Sascha Dallinga (POLIS), Ilana Bergsma (Versot)
The Internationalization Workgroup aims to improve the dynamic internationalization process within the faculty. The four study associations (Complex, POLIS, INPUT and Versot) meet regularly with a board coordinator from Faculty Association IDEA to discuss their own developments, to collectively work on solutions for complex issues and to initiate new ideas within the faculty. These ideas and initiatives are meant to give the international student a better and more integrated position within their study and the faculty. The workgroup also works on one activity a year. The content of this activity and its timing vary per year, but every year it is a great success! The three central keypoints of this workgroup are: communication, developing new initatives and improving the integration.
The platform meetings are meetings which are weekly held with all associations of the TSB. It can be a pretty busy meeting when everybody joins. The parties that attend these meetings are Active TSB, Complex, IDEA, INPUT, POLIS, SPS-NIP, Stimulus, Versot and the student assessor of the TSB. From time to time Ingrid is also joining, she is the Career Service Officer. Within these meetings numerous topics are discussed. From talking about the elections with Active TSB and Stimulus to talking about the labour market activities of all associations. Next to the more serious side of this workgroup, we also like to have drinks with each other.
The secretary workgroup is a workgroup consisting out of all the secretaries of the study associations and IDEA. The secretary of IDEA ‘leads’ this workgroup and makes sure to schedule the meetings. In these meetings we will update each other of how things are going, and we also help each other when someone is experiencing difficulties. It can be very helpful to exchange ideas and knowledge about our secretary tasks, so you can apply several insights to your own association.
The Treasurer Workgroup aims to provide help to the TSB treasurers. The workgroup contains all current treasurers of TSB. When a treasurer has a question or needs advice, the treasurer workgroup will help. We will discuss current developments and problems, which are related to the tasks of a treasurer.
