Head of Events

As the Head of Events, you will be in charge of the events team, responsible for planning
events for active as well as passive members. Social activities are a huge part of the
Enactus experience, therefore, we put a lot of value into our social events. We have
organized social activities ranging from bowling to ice-skating, to the trampoline park and
even a cycle dinner where members welcomed each other at their homes for each course of
dinner. Of course there are also bigger events to organise, like the active members weekend
in the Netherlands and one abroad. You are responsible for “the agenda” of the organisation
and it is thus important that you know how to plan ahead.

As we like to make sure that Enactus EUR is an organization that students enjoy and have
the best experience we also organize a special weekend for active members; the “Active
Members Weekend”. This year we had the opportunity to take an unforgettable trip to Poland
where we bonded stronger than ever and made memories that none of us will ever forget.
Next to all the social activities we also got a closer contact with study associations like ECE,
CSA, ESN and UNICEF that we have also planned joint events with. These are all the things
to just start with because as head of events you will have the freedom to choose events as
well as have the choice of selecting the perfect cooperations that give you the opportunity of
other amazing events. You have all the freedom to decide what you think fits best!
