Supporting Bodies

What do they do?

The Election Commission is composed of two Advisory Council members, and is in charge, together with the AUCSA Board, to arrange the elections. The Elections Commission receives the applications and conducts the interviews with the candidates. Once the candidates have chosen for which position they are running, the Election Commission proposes a Board. Last year, the Election Commission consisted of Andy O Daab, Heleen Vos, and Steinar Laenen.

Voting on the new AUCSA Board

The General Assembly during which you can vote for the new Board 2019-2020 will take place in May 2018.

All members of the AUCSA, all current AUC students and honorary members, have the right to vote for the candidates. The Elections Commission proposes a candidate, but in the end, it is up to the members to elect the new board members.

If you can not be present at the General Assembly, please send in your proxy vote. This needs to be emailed to at least 24 hours in advance. Every member is allowed to proxy for two other members, meaning that they can vote for themselves, and for two others if they are present at the General Assembly.

What do they do?

The advisory council’s main task is to provide a supporting role to the AUCSA Board, but also to protect members’ interests in the AUCSA. As such, the advisory’s council job consists of several parts:

  • Overseeing the functioning of the AUCSA Board
  • Helping the AUCSA Board with issues such as changes in policies or statutes
  • Mediating internal issues
  • Setting up the Elections Commission for each election cycle
  • Handling formal complaints about the AUCSA Board

What if something is amiss?

If you have a complaint about the AUCSA Board, or do not agree with something the AUCSA Board or one of its members is doing, we recommend taking the following steps:

Talk to the person in question, or someone else on the AUCSA Board to try to resolve the problem, or come to some kind of understanding or compromise.
If, after this, you have not been able to bring the problem to resolution, bring the problem to us at and we will investigate or mediate where required.
If the issue is something you would prefer to not bring to the AUCSA Board directly, then it is of course possible to contact us, so that we can investigate the complaint.


The Advisory Council is made up of two ex-AUCSA Board members, and two independent students chosen by the previous Board.

Advisory Council 2018-2019 consists of:

Berend Jansen: Formerly AUCSA CAO
Louise ten Bosch: Formerly AUCSA Secretary
Noa Smits: Formerly AUCSA CAO
Tamara Happé: Independent student member

If you have any questions about our role, or any complaints, please send an email to, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
