The Business Affairs (or BAF in short) is the acquisition committee of GLV Idun, with as primary goal to support the Commissioner of External Affairs. Being a member of the BAF basically entails that once every two weeks, you hangout with the group to brainstorm about acquisition opportunities for the association as a whole or committees specifically. The sky is the limit! In 2016, we closed a deal with KPN to arrange free tickets to the KNSB Cup in Kardinge (which is an ice skating tournament). The brand new DJ-set was bought with a nice discount, organized by BAF members. So we are continuously looking for new opportunities to collaborate with companies, thereby advantaging our members and the companies themselves. The Commissioner of External Affairs is full-time occupied with this task, but we help him in doing so!
You are also introduced to acquisition yourself. You will learn how to approach companies and together with older members, you will set your first steps in the world of acquisition. This way, you will learn skills that you can use in the rest of your life! Any experience in acquisition is therefore also not needed; we will learn you anything!
So, do you want to join a committee that offers you both fun and life-long lessons? That organizes committee weekends only in foreign destinations? Apply for the BAF! Because as they say in Dutch: "Waj zegt aj dronken bent, hej dacht doe aj nog nuchter waoren." (translation: what one says when drunk, is what one thought of when sober).
Kisses on behalf of the BAF,
Commissioner of External Affairs 2018-2019
