Roles in the Energy Now commission

Chairman

Program & Content

Acquisition

Planning & Logistics

Promotion

Treasurer

Design

Secretary

Or chairwoman. You will be the main face and representative of the Energy Now commission and event. Within the commission, your main task is to keep track of the overal progress, chair the weekly meetings and make sure everyone is functioning properly.

The time this role requires is spread quite evenly across the months preceding the event.

This role concerns itself with the actual content of the day. What will be the theme? Which companies should give a workshop or talk? Who will host the event? Who will speak? Who will partake in the panel discussion and what will the questions be? Will there even be a panel discussion? In short; you get to decide what the day will look like and who will be in it.

The time this role requires is spread quite evenly across the months preceding the event but will be slightly more around half-way through and slightly less before.

Acquisition is usually done by two members of the commission. You will reach out to companies that fit the theme and discuss with them the options for partaking in the event. According to the treasurer’s budget, you will carry the main responsibility of acquiring the funds necessary to organise the event.

The time this role requires is mostly spend in the first and last few months of the period preceding the event.

With planning and logistics your work will converge to the day the event takes place. You will have the main voice in where the event will be held, what the exhibition floor will look like, which lunch and drinks will be served and more. It is your task to make sure that, at the day itself, the rest of the commission and the Team Energy volunteers know where they are needed and what they should do. For that day, you are in charge!

The workload for this role is mostly near the end of the period preceding the event. Though, with maintaining the ticket registration environment, you will have some things to do in the months before.

Promotion naturally comprises the tasks concerned with bringing in participants for the event. This includes the planning and execution of a social media strategy, but also the creative process of physical, on-campus promotion.

The promotion of the event starts roughly half-way the through the period preceding it, and slowly increases once the event gets close.

The treasurer manages the commission’s financial status in the run-up to the event. You will comprise a budget based on the rough first shapes of the event, and will make sure your team will spend the money obtained through acquisition accordingly.

The workload for the treasurer is mostly at the beginning of the academic year, after which the managing of finance will be spread quite evenly over the months that follow.

Often combined or in close cooperation with the function of “promotion”, fulfilling the role of design means that you get to shape the material used to dress the event and the promotion preceding it.

Similar to the role of promotion, the workload is low at the beginning and starts to increase roughly hal-way through.

This is never a stand-alone function. The secretary will make sure external inquiries are handled properly and that during the meeting, minutes are taken.

The workload for this function is spread evenly across the period preceding the event.

Within the Energy Now commission, responsibilities are divided according to a series of roles. The time required varies per role and time distant from the event. On average, you will be expected dedicate no more than 6 to 8 hours per week on your tasks, making it the ideal experience to complement your study with. Often, the commission decides to split certain roles amongst it’s members, you are free to do so too, as long as the rest of the commission agrees.

Above, you will find the roles with a short description of what it comprises. You do not need to have a set preference to join the commission, but it’s good to have an idea about the things you’d like to learn. Don’t worry, with every role you have a say in the process as a whole, the role you occupy simply indicates the thing you are in the end the main responsible for.

On the left, you will find the experiences shared by the commission members that organised the most recent edition of Energy Now. Will you be the once standing on the stage next year? Apply now!
