As Commissioner social I am responsible for organizing the social activities of Bonaparte. You can think of gala’s, movie nights etc. So my job is basically to make sure that besides debating events, Bonaparte can provide you much more joy! I’m also responsible for the external courses that Bonaparte organizes. That is to say that I am responsible for the content of it, but also for the relationship with our external parties that have a relationship with us in this matter.

Year off
Hi, I’m Zerjun and I am the commissonner PR for Bonaparte. My job is to make sure people hear about Bonaparte and to attract new members. Most of my work is done at the beginning of the year – I have contact with Universities and other student associations to find new members. Afterwards I mostly work on our image – by updating our social media accounts and letting you know what is up with Bonaparte!
