Dear Alumni,

 

We have had an exciting month. Starting with the farewell to our colleague Metty Willemse after 43 years. During her time at Nyenrode she has been invaluable to many of us. The association fitted her like a glove, 'It didn't feel like work, I had so much fun', said Metty on her last day. The Alumni Office gave her a warm farewell, with many thanks to all alumni who contributed to this with written or filmed messages! As the Board, we thank Metty for her contribution to our association, we will miss her very much! Do you want to keep in touch with Metty? She can be found on the platform as an honorary member.

An important contribution has also been made in recent weeks by a large number of members of the Board of Representatives. Additional meetings were organized at which BoR members could discuss the collaboration with Nyenrode Business University with the NA VCV Board. In these meetings, the BoR members provided valuable input, which the NA VCV Board will take to heart. We thank all those present for their involvement and critical eye!

We also have a lot to look forward to. Our first physical meeting since many months is finally back on the agenda: the Oldtimer-Cabriodag! Preparations are in full swing; the Alumni Office is working hard to make this day a success again. There is still room for a few teams to compete with other alumni and students, so be sure to register using the link in this newsletter!

There is much more to look forward to. In this newsletter, alumnus Kris Rote (19910304) personally invites you to attend a series of special (online) meetings presented by NBU: during four interactive, online sessions, speakers Dennis Karpes (founder Justdiggit and Dance4Life), Peter van Uhm (out of service general), Carolijn Brouwer (first female Volvo Ocean Race winner) and Nick Vujicic (motivator/international speaker) you will learn about their life story and the role leadership plays in this. Highly recommended for anyone who could use some inspiration in these turbulent times!

Personally, I have a passion for cars and automotive, so naturally the theme of this news letter appeals to me. I hope to see many of you face to face again at the Oldtimer & Convertible Day on the 20th of June!

 

Van Verre!
