Shift is proud to be one of the organisers for Day of Sustainability 2021. Join Shift and eight other associations for the annual Day of Sustainabiltiy which will be held Tuesday 5th October on TU Delft Campus!

All good things must come to an end, our board year as well. But, this gives you the opportunity to sign up for the next board! We’re looking for a new board from March 2021 – March 2022!
We’ll have the following positions available:
The Chair makes sure the board is running smoothly, plans ahead for the new year and works with the Events Committee to organize great social events for IE’ers such as the gala! Also, the Chair leads board meetings, makes an agenda and is the representative person during official activities.
The Secretary has the task to manage the communication channels. Communication from Shift should be clear, since this board member is often the first port of call. The Secretary works with the Promo Committee, that takes care of the newsletter, updating the website and promotion of events!
The Treasurer is in charge of Shift’s money. The main responsibilities are to make a financial forecast for the coming year and to keep control of each expense, including the expenses of the committees. Next to that, the Treasurer manages our member database and helps the Study Trip Committee to organize an unforgettable study trip!
The Education Co-ordinator is responsible for all education-related topics, contributing to Shift’s goal of motivating and supporting students in their academic life. This position allows for a lot of freedom to realize ideas and the chance to support initiatives that have just started such as the “IE students meet…” event series or our international IE student cooperation. Finally, the Education Coordinator is an honorary member of the EduCom.
Alumni and Career Coordinator
The Business and Alumni Coordinator focuses on everything that comes after studying IE, making use of, extending and strengthening Shift’s rich network of alumni and partnering companies. By taking part in the Career Committee (which organises our annual Career Event) and by sharing or (co-)organising business-related opportunities you help fellow Shifters orient on their professional path while working on yours.

In these times of a global pandemic information and communication are essential tools in combating this threat. Which is why we’d like to remind you all of the rapidly changing measures to keep both you and your friends safe. Regarding your studies, both Universities provide frequent updates in their own websites. Please check here for Leiden University and for TU Delft.
Furthermore, if you or any of your roommates or close friends are tested positive for COVID-19 we urgently ask you to inform your study advisor. We’re all part of a larger community and we should use the communicative capabilities of this community to our advantage.
