„Aesculapius” is the study association for Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences founded in 1885 and has a new executive board every year since then. The executive board gets to lead the Association for a year.
The 136th board of the L.P.S.V. „Aesculapius”, named ‘No pRoblem’ for the year 2021-2022 consists of the following board members:
Robin Hoogenstrijd – praeses
Pheline Remijn – ab-actis
IJsbrand Eggen – quaestor
Wiljo Bovekerk – assessor I
Marissa Remeeus – assessor II
The executive board's most important task is to keep the Association running. The board is responsible for business and financial contacts, as well as regulating committees and a few activities that the board organizes itself.
Because „Aesculapius” is a democratic Association, members have a say in what happens within the Association. Members can share their opinion with the board during General Assemblies. The board will always try to take the opinions of members into account as much as possible.
The board of „Aesculapius” consists of five people that each have their own tasks. Because „Aesculapius” is the oldest study association in Leiden, it has a lot of old traditions. One of them is using the Latin designations for the positions of the board.
The praeses (chairman) leads all meetings and is the official spokesperson of the Association. The praeses also organizes the ‘afternoon symposium’ which takes place at the end of April.
The ab-actis (secretary) takes care of all received and sent mail. They are also responsible for the contacts that the association has. These include the honorary members, professors of the institute, spoke persons of companies, and members. The ab-actis also takes care of the agenda and year planning, the members- and alumni register, the archive and the organization of the former-board-dinner and the parent’s day.
The quaestor (treasurer) is the third member of the board. They are responsible for all the financial business of the association. The quaestor is also the contact for all acquisition.
The assessor I (first commissioner) is responsible for the organization of the foreign excursion, together with the BUEX committee. The assessor I is also in charge of updating the website and is the mentor of Panacea, the Freshmen Committee of „Aesculapius”.
The assessor II (second commissioner) is responsible for the book sale, providing the assessor I with promotional material and in charge of the social media. The assessor II also takes place in the Teaching Department Committee and the Study Committee.
