Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is one of the three branches of the IMUNA Foundation. The board consists of two student members from the Executive Staff, the Secretary-General and the Financial Manager, as well as teachers of the Murmellius Gymnasium. Within the Board of Directors, the Secretary-General and Financial Manager act as secretary and treasurer respectively.
The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the foundation’s day-to-day operations and decision-making. They also aim to provide constructive feedback to the Executive Staff and help set long-term goals and visions, as its members usually stay in their positions for multiple years.
The current members of the Board of Directors
Ms. M.E. Kuipers
Chairman of the Board of Directors
My name is Marina Kuipers and I hold the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors. Together with my colleague Robin van Kempen, I am responsible for the appointment of the Secretary-General. In addition, I maintain close contact with the Secretary-General, Deputy Secretary-General and the Financial Manager throughout the year and oversee the process of establishing IMUNA.
This year I am very proud of the Executive Staff as well and I am confident that IMUNA will become memorable for all participants. During the conference, I am present to answer questions from MUN directors, delegates and participate in the evaluation. I look forward to the conference with great enthusiasm!
Mr. R.S. van Kempen
Member of the Board of Directors
My name is Robin van Kempen, and I am honored to continue serving as a Member of the Board of Directors. As such I will be assisting my colleague, and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Marina Kuipers. To ensure that everything runs smoothly, I will be in close contact with the Board of Directors.
Apart from assisting Marina Kuipers, I will be weighing in on the appointment of the Secretary-General as well. During IMUNA, I will be present to help out wherever I can, and to answer any questions that may occur from directors and delegates. This special edition of IMUNA will undoubtedly be one for the books, and I for one, am looking forward to experiencing my first IMUNA as a Member of the Board of Directors.
