Active membership at the MARUG is more than developing yourself on a professional level, it is also a lot of fun! Enthusiastic active members are very important for every association. That is why the MARUG organizes several activities for active members. We have a monthly social every first Thursday of the month in 't Vaatje. Also, we have other nice activities that are described below. Next to that, every committee gets a dinner at the end of their committee year. All active members activities are organized by the Promotion and Activities Committee.

To let all active members get to know eachother, the PAC organizes an active members weekend each year. It is the a perfect opportunity to meet other committees.

St. Nicholas' Eve (in Dutch: Sinterklaas evening, or 'Pakjesavond') is celebrated annually with the giving of gifts on 5 December, the night before Saint Nicholas Day in the Netherlands. PACjesavond is the ‘Sinterklaas evening’ of the MARUG where Sinterklaas brings a visit to the active members. After that, we have the monthly social in 't Vaatje. Beforehand, all active members sent did-you-know-that's of other active members. A nice poem is made of these little secrets. This year, PACjesavond takes place on the 7th of December.
Every year, an Active Members Barbeque is organized by the PAC. All former and new active members will be there to flip a burger and drink some beer in the sun. This year, the active members BBQ took place on the 2nd of June 2017.
To start the new year with a bang, the MARUG organized a yearly dinner for active members. For only a small price active members get a two-course dinner and 2 drinks. After the delicious dinner on location, we will continue the evening at the MARUG social in 't Vaatje. The Active Members Dinner will this year take place in February.
