As chairman you maintain contacts with the MARUG Board. You will be responsible for coordinating, motivating and supporting the team during the entire journey towards the event. Therefore it is important that each committee member knows exactly what is expected of him or her.

Additionally, it is important that there is a good atmosphere within the committee. Finally, you are the one responsible for the general planning and monitoring its progress.

Day organisation & Treasurer
As the officer day organisation (DO) you will be arranging all the tasks associated with the day that the event takes place. This includes arranging the location, maintaining contacts with this location and negotiate prices, catering and decoration. It is also intended that you put together a plan which indicates to the detail what happens when and who is responsible for which tasks. Furthermore, schedules have to be made for the participating companies. Besides these issues, there are several other responsibilities that you will have to deal with, such as providing the right equipment and taking care of the catering.
The responsibilities as treasurer are to maintain the administration, but also to establish the budget, check expenses and keep the account up-to-date. You will do so in cooperation with the treasures of the MARUG board. 

Theme & Speakers
The role of theme and speakers means that you determine the theme of the day and develop it. If the theme is established, you get started with contacting appropriate speakers. You maintain contact with them and work with them to an appropriate interpretation of the lecture. When the content of all the speakers is known, it is time to determine the structure of the day and the daily schedule. Furthermore, you are also responsible for taking minutes during meetings.
